Jaguars to Work Out Small School Defensive End/Linebacker

According to Josh Buchanan of, the Jacksonville Jaguars are one of a couple of teams who have scheduled a private work out with Baldwin-Wallace defensive end/linebacker Keith Darbut. Darbut ran the 40 yard dash between 4.38 and 4.40 at 229 pounds. He measured in at 6-4 and is reportedly up to 240 pounds. With his long arms and lack of bulk, teams are looking at Darbut as a stand up linebacker at the next level.

The Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens have also lined up private work outs for this Division III stand out.

Darbut is from Miami, Florida and was relatively quiet his first three years mainly because he hasn't really been coached with three defensive line coaches and two defensive coordinators in his career.

He was a first-team All-OAC selection and named defensive lineman of the year in the OAC in 2010. His 43 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks, 11 quarterback hurries, two fumble recoveries, two forced fumbles, and 40-yard touchdown reception show he makes plays in plenty of different ways.

Because he is thin he won't play end in the NFL but his athleticism should allow him to convert to rush outside linebacker.
