Name: Lynden Trail
Team: Norfolk State Spartans
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 260lbs
Position: DE/OLB
Pro Player Comparison: Jadaveon Clowney


Lynden Trail of FCS team Norfolk State, was the #63 DE in the 2010 college football recruiting class.Trail signed with the University of Florida where he redshirted in 2010 and did not see any game action in 2011. This caused him to transfer to Norfolk State in the spring of 2011 with three years of eligibility left. The reason Trail received the Jadaveon Clowney comparison is due to the fact that he is very athletic for a man his size, allowing him to rush from the defensive end or outside linebacker position. As a sophomore, Trail was 2nd in the MEAC in tackles for loss, and 3rd  in sacks. As a junior, Trail was top 10 in those same two categories, and led all players in the MEAC in number of fumbles forced. As of right now nfldraftscout.com has Trail ranked as the number 13 defensive end, and has him projected as a 6th round pick. Like most other players from the FCS, there is the chance that Trail goes undrafted. If that does in fact end up being the case, his high motor and versatility should get him a workout or two in the NFL.
