ERIC EDHOLM: Miami edge rusher Gregory Rousseau might be one of the more fascinating prospects of this year's class. He's straight out of central casting for that position, 6'7", 255 pounds. And as a red shirt freshman, 15 and 1/2 sacks back in 2019, wasn't even a starter to begin the year. But he opted out in 2020 and NFL scouts are a little ambivalent. They don't know what to think after only one season of production were he did most of his damage inside. He's your classic boom or bust pick, very similar in our eyes to Marcus Davenport of the New Orleans Saints.
