Defensive Line 

- A deep and talented group of defensive linemen made their way to Murfreesboro on Sunday where several guys had strong days and put themselves on the map as an eventual college recruited prospects.

The top guy of the day had to be King’s Academy (TN) DE/OLB Abdul-Malik SholankeMalikSholanke6'3" | DLKing’s Academy | 2022StateTN. The 6’3 240 pound edge rusher has only been playing football for a short time but already has the physical body and traits (arm length, athleticism) to become a force on the next level. He showed that on Sunday going up against some of the best tackles (F.Anderson, J. Hood) we have in this state and he more than performed well, he won a few battles. No offers yet for Sholanke but that will change very soon!

- Peabody (TN) DE/OLB Jordan Jelks-Shepherd didn’t have the best day at the Nashville Combine and even he would tell you that but he did show flashes of explosive traits and athleticism throughout several testing drills. As the offseason goes on and Shepherd puts in more work, the better and more he will see his game change.
