USD's Shining Starr

USD's Shining Starr

The NFL combine is only four days away, and former USD Linebacker Tyler Starr is in Franklin, TN, working out, preparing for the biggest interview of his life.

Not long after he ended his college career, the Coyote's All-time sack leader, Tyler Starr followed in the foot steps of several NFL players and began working out at the D1 training facility.

"The One Degree family has a lot of big names. You look on the wall and see the jerseys of Randall Cobb, Peyton Manning owns it, and Ndamukong Sue. It's crazy because it's a family environment almost like a brotherhood," Former USD LB Tyler Starr said.

If drafted, the Little Rock, IA native could join his USD brothers Stefan Logan and Tom Compton in the NFL. That would make his former coach pretty proud.

"For him to do this and come through our program, graduate, and now have a chance to go into the NFL I think is a feather in our hat and it says a lot about him," USD Head Football Coach Joe Glenn.

There has been a lot said about him recently. He became the first Coyote to be named the Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year. Then scouts really took notice of the 6'5" linebacker after his stellar performance at the East West Shrine game.

"Having the season that we had at USD and the East West Shrine game really helped me get my name out there. I just wanted to show that I could perform at the level of competition that they were expecting. That was something that I wanted to do, I got the opportunity and everything worked out," Starr said.

He is projected to go anywhere between the fourth and seventh round in the draft. If all goes well at this weekends combine it's safe to say this young star's future is extremely bright.

"We're thinking that as long as I keep working hard and shoot for the moon I have unlimited possibilities," Starr said.

"It's a big deal to go to the combine and show all the scouts, the coaches, and the owners that you belong. That will be a big day for him," Glenn said.

You can watch Starr's combine workout on NFL Network next Monday.
