Salmon River High alum and former Boise State linebacker Leighton Vander Esch measured up to the enormous interest in his NFL combine performance last weekend.
Per USA Today: “With Virginia Tech's Tremaine Edmunds sitting out much of the athletic testing, Vander Esch was perhaps the standard setter among linebackers....He should now be squarely in the first-round conversation.”
Per CBS Sports: “Vander Esch ran 4.65 at slightly over 6-4 and 256 pounds. He proceeded to crush the rest of his workout....His 4.15 in the short shuttle was an awesome time too. He can now be classified as a combine freak.”
