Starr Awaits His NFL Fate

May 8, 2014, 10:50 PM by Cat Clark

Starr Awaits His NFL Fate
VERMILLION, SD -

With the NFL Draft now underway, former USD Linebacker Tyler Starr is anxiously awaiting for his dream to come true by hearing his name called.

"Starr grab a helmet and get in there," said a USD Assistant Coach.

For four years Tyler Starr heard those words on the sidelines of the Dakota Dome, now he hopes to hear them in the NFL. He has a high motor and instincts as a pass rusher, but gets knocked for his speed and the fact that he played at an FCS school. That is why his draft stock is so unpredictable.

"There are a bunch of different media sites that say I'll go anywhere from low third round, to the seventh round, or even a free agent," Starr said. "I'm not worrying about any of that. I think whatever happens on draft day will happen for a reason. I'm more worried about finding a fit for me where I can make an impact," he added.

As a Coyote, he recorded 27 career sacks, tying him atop the school's all-time list. He caught NFL scouts eyes at the East-West Shrine game, but his teammates and coaches know he deserves a chance.

"I love the kid and I wish him nothing but the best for him. He's worked his butt off for this moment," USD Quarterback Kevin Earl said.

"He will play professional football, I promise you that," exclaimed USD Head Coach Joe Glenn. "I know that much, I've coached long enough to know what it takes and this guy has got it. Everything he does is hell-bent for leather. The guy has no half speed to him. If he keeps doing things like he has always done, I guarantee he will make somebody's team and he will play."

Really that is all Starr wants. He has been playing the game he loves since he was a boy in Little Rock, IA. Now with a family of his own he's ready to hear his named called on draft day.

"It's more of a next step for me," Starr stated. "I'm not ready to be done playing football, I'm excited to have a future in football, and I hope that I have a long future there," he added.

The Starr family plans to get together this weekend to not only celebrate Tyler's future, but his son's birthday as well.
