Michigan linebacker Devin Bush draft profile
The Eagles are in need of linebacker help. Last season the team released Mychal Kendricks, Paul Worrilow missed the entire season with a torn ACL and Jordan Hicks missed four games. Hicks is expected to test free agency and if he leaves the unit would be pretty thin. That’s where the Michigan Linebacker Bush comes in.
If selected he could be a day one starter. The Michigan Linebacker would also learn from one of the games best in Nigel Bradham.
Anchoring the nations best defense
Michigan had the best defense in College Football in 2018. That didn’t help them against Ohio State but overall they were extremely impressive. As a result, the Wolverines allowed just 19.38 points per game. Bush along with Rashan Gary, Chase Winovich and David Long terrorized opposing offenses. In 2018 the Florida native had 79 tackles and five sacks. In his career, he finished with 194 total tackles with 10 sacks and one interception.
Furthermore, the star linebacker
The next great Eagles linebacker?
Jeremiah Trotter, Chuck Bednarik, and Seth Joyner are just a few of the great linebackers in Eagles history. If Bush finds his way to Philly the Eagles couldn’t ask for a better situation. He can play all three downs, cover and would, as a result, give Jim Schwartz some flexibility in his scheme.
Make the Eagles defense great
The Eagles defense has youth all over and adding a three-down linebacker would add to it. Bradham and Bush patrolling the middle with Fletcher Cox, Derek Barnett, and others up front along with Leblanc, Jenkins, and others on the back end. This defense could subsequently turn into something special.
Healthy and ready to roll
Consequently, Bush suffered a hip injury in the Ohio State game and missed the teams’ bowl game.
However, now he is healthy and ready to roll at the combine and pro day on his way to the draft. The best college linebacker could soon be the best in the NFL at the position.
