Bio

Position: Defensive End

Previous College: None

Projection: Redshirt

Ian Seau probably could benefit from a redshirt year, but my instincts tell me he is going to make it hard for the coaches to keep him off the field. The kid already benches 285 pounds, squats 425 and runs a 4.65 40.

He's rated the 57th-best strong-side defensive end in the country by Rivals.com and the 83rd-best player in the state of California. Oh, and there's those bloodlines: He's the nephew of Junior Seau.

For a defensive line that could use all the help and depth it can get at the end position — especially if Brandon Harold plays predominantly at defensive tackle — Seau has a lot to offer.

P.S. I admit I'm taking a bit of liberty in "projecting" Seau as No. 98, but I just couldn't help myself. His high school film reminds me of another great 98 who shared his first name: Ian Campbell.
