Purdue Spring Football: 5 Players to Watch

Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports
  1. DeMarcus Mitchell - Defensive End/Linebacker - Where will he play in what appears to be a defense transitioning back to a 4 front defense. He was a bright spot in a dismal defense in 2020, playing at the stand up outside linebacker position - mostly becoming a pass rusher. For me, personally, I hope we see him with his hand in the dirt on the other side of George Karlaftis this Spring. I believe those two rushing the passer would cause havoc, helping the secondary, which always needs help.
