Sonoran Hot Reads: Paul Magloire one of top linebacker/safety hybrids in 2017 NFL Draft class

Get ready for this guy to make some serious noise

Jennifer Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

As football continues to evolve, defenses are starting to catch up with the offenses. That includes the development of the linebacker/safety hybrid spot, and the growing importance of having a guy that can do it. Luckily for the Arizona Wildcats, they have one of the better guys in the country to fill this spot in Paul Magloire:

"Arizona's Paul Magloire could fill more of a true faux-linebacker role in a defense at 6-1, 220 pounds of pure muscle."

If he succeeds at filling this role, expect to see his name high on draft boards when the 2017 NFL Draft rolls around

- Arizona recruits Greg Johnson and Joseph Lewis were both offered by Alabama

- The Wildcats are going to an Ohio State satellite camp in mid-June. Those Arizona coaches have been extremely good at building relationships with recruits in this particular cycle
