Sonoran Hot Reads: Paul Magloire’s draft stock continues to improve

Even with no Combine invite, Magloire is gaining tons of attention

NCAA Football: Arizona vs Brigham Young Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Former Arizona Wildcats linebacker Paul Magloire Jr. was not one of 330 players invited to the NFL Combine, yet his draft stock seems to be taking off. Sports Illustrated’s Chris Burke is the most recent one to profile Magloire as part of his “Draft this Dude” series. He breaks down some of Magloire’s tape, and explains that he could fit in both a 3-4 defense and in a 4-3 base. The thing that I found interesting was breaking down the weaknesses in Magloire’s game, and how he’ll have to fix those to succeed at the next level
