Small school linebackers shine at combine

Relative unknown linebackers Antwan Barnes and Zak DeOssie had impressive workouts at the combine.

Barnes, an outside linebacker from Florida International, put on an impressive display of speed and strength. He led all linebackers with a 4.40 40-yard dash and finished second among his peers with 31 reps of the 225 bench. At 6'1" 240 pounds he has the size, speed, and strength scouts love.

DeOssie, a huge linebacker from Brown, showed amazing speed for someone his size. After weighing in at 6'5" and 250 pounds he went out and ran a 4.53 40-time.

Football players can be found everywhere, not just the big programs. Deossie's dad was a pro, he was a ball boy for the Pat's under Belicheck, and he's smart enough to go to Brown. Sounds pretty good to me.
