Texas A&M junior outside linebacker

Height: 6-foot-2

Weight: 230 lbs.

Why he's No. 20: Sean Porter looks like an SEC linebacker, so he should fit in nicely in the Aggies' new league. He can run from sideline to sideline and should make an easy switch to the new 4-3 defense A&M will deploy this season. Porter can rush the passer, but also plays the run very well.

College career: Porter started two games late in his freshman season before becoming an every-game starter in 2011. He had 74 tackles last season and 9 sacks and terrorized the Oklahoma offense with seven tackles and three passes broken up.

Fun fact: Most early mock draft boards have Porter as a late first-round pick. He could make a lot of money with a big junior season.
