Projection: Starter

Status: On Scholarship

Emmanuel Lamur (b. June 8, 1989), a.k.a. "The Haitian Sensation," will spend his final season at strong-side linebacker, after playing two years at safety. The switch was made before the Missouri game, but now is permanent.

Lamur was the team's leading tackler in 2009, but multiple injuries (including a concussion scare in practice) led to a major statistical dropoff for the normally productive junior. In a defense that was bad overall, Lamur was a step slow.

By moving him to linebacker, the coaches hope they can mitigate his weaknesses (lack of speed, high tackling form) and maximize his strengths (dude loves to freakin' hit). He appeared to lock up the SAM position in spring practice.

On top of that, Lamur is a team leader. This will be his second consecutive season as a team captain, and Bill Snyder always has had nothing but praise for his attitude, character and work ethic. I hope he goes out strong as a senior.
