Very late in adding this to the scouting report, but Crick is out for the season. His injury may not keep him out of the predraft process so it’s possible that he can get healthy and remain a first round pick.
Jared Crick is another one of the group of the reemergence of the Nebraska Cornhuskers as a school that puts prospects into the N.F.L. He’s also likely to be one of the four first round Nebraska Cornhuskers defensive prospects to be selected into the first round of the N.F.L. draft in the last three years. (Suh, Prince Amukamara…and then this year Crick and Alfonzo Dennard have a great shot of making it into the first round.

6’4 279 pounds, 32″ arm length, 10 1/8 inch hands
4.99 forty yard dash, 31 inch vertical jump, 104 inch broad jump, 7.47 3 cone drill, 4.40 20 yard shuttle
73 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, 14 QB hurries
70 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, 7 QB hurries
Crick was knocked a lot for his great 2009 season because people questioned whether or not he could produce without Suh next to him on the line. He came back in 2010 and had an equally productive year. There is no questioning Crick’s production. It’s top rate.
Austin Bramley’s initial thoughts on Crick
Jared Crick, a member of the 2011 Lott IMPACT Trophy watch list and one of the nation’s top defensive lineman should be a top draft pick in 2012. Crick has been excellent the last two seasons and he hasn’t gone unnoticed. Crick is a two-time all conference performer. At 6’6″ 285 pounds, Crick has the size, speed and skill set to not only have a productive senior season for Nebraska but to have a great NFL Career.
PROS: Great interior pass rusher, versatile (can play in 4-3 or 3-4), great upper body strength, quick off the ball, blue-collar work ethic, solid run defender, proved he could produce with and without Ndamukong Suh, team leader.
CONS: Injury issue in 2011, not as thick as you’d like (about 285-290), sometimes plays too high, benefits from playing on a dominant defense.
I’ll give you a little bit of an evolution here.
