Arizona State linebacker Carl Bradford held a pre-draft meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars and three other teams, according to Aaron Wilson of National Football Post.

Bradford, a two-time All-Pac 12 selection, also visited the Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers and Atlanta Falcons, according to Wilson, although it isn't yet clear what position(s) he has been worked out at. At the ASU Pro Day in March, Bradford told reporters that he's been asked to try several different positions, including every linebacker spot, defensive end and even fullback.

While with the Sun Devils, Bradford played at the Devil-backer position, which isn't all that different than the LEO position utilized by the Jaguars defense. He was a pass rushing specialist, who often had his hand on the ground but was used a hybrid between defensive end and linebacker.

However, even with 40.5 tackles for loss and 20 sacks in his final two seasons at ASU, many believe Bradford's best fit in the NFL isn't in a pass rushing role. Some, including BCC's Eric Stoner, believe his best fit is as a middle linebacker.

Bradford measured in at 6'1, 250 pounds at the NFL Combine and recorded a 37.5" vertical, 10'2" broad jump and 23 bench press reps. He underwhelmed with a 4.75 40-yard dash, but slashed more than a tenth of a second off his time at the ASU Pro Day.
