Curry is a known commodity among NFL scouts

       When the NFL Draft takes place next month, it’s highly unlikely that Marshall University’s Vinny Curry will still on the draft board after the second round.  The 6-3, 265 pounds defensive end is the relentless pass sack artist that the pros covet.
       As a senior, Curry was voted the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year after putting up some notable numbers (11 sacks, seven forced fumbles and 22 tackles for a loss). Curry delivered consistency during his time with the Thundering Herd with 26½
sacks, 10 forced fumbles and 32 quarterback hurries. 
       According to several websites devoted to the pro draft, Curry won’t have any problems attracting interest.
       The list of interested NFL parties includes: Green Bay, Pittsburgh, New England, Buffalo, Kansas City, San Diego, Arizona, Baltimore and Miami.
       Here’s a pre-draft outlook about Curry which appeared on, a website that specializes in mock draft scenarios and player prospect rankings.

       “Curry would be a good fit in any 3-4 defense. He would be ideal complement as an edge rusher for Green Bay on the other side from Clay Matthews. Curry could be a quality understudy for the Steelers' James Harrison. For the Patriots, Bills and Chargers, Curry could make a quick impact, as all of those teams could use an upgrade for their edge rushers immediately.”
