NFL Draft Spotlight: Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
The ever-upbeat former Missouri Tiger, senior linebacker Sean Weatherspoon is out to prove he isn't too small to be a stud at the next level. The 2010 NFL Draft is jam-packed with undersized linebackers, but Weatherspoon's on-field productivity can't be ignored (376 tackles, three forced fumbles, four interceptions in the past three seasons).
Expected draft placement
Don't expect Weatherspoon to be drafted by a 3-4 team. He has the attributes needed in a 4-3 weakside linebacker, and some coaching staffs may be willing to try him at middle linebacker.
Weatherspoon should be drafted in the top 32 picks, but he could slide into the top of the second in a worst-case scenario. The New York Giants are a likely destination, but the idea of him drafted as high as the Jacksonville Jaguars (No. 10) isn't unrealistic.
