Steve Beauharnais, ILB, Rutgers
Beauharnais (6-2, 230) was drafted 235th overall in the seventh round. His name is pronounced "bo-HARR-ness." He was the middle linebacker for the Scarlet Knights' defense, but more than that, he was the team's leader. He led all of the team's breakdowns. In four years, he compiled 274 tackles, 12.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. He had 82 tackles and a sack in 2012. He has the ability contribute on special teams, where he'll likely have to make his mark.
He said it: “I’m a great run stopper. I always have a good presence in the middle and that’s the way I like to play – hard-nosed football.”
