Devon Bridges started the last two seasons at linebacker for Villanova, and has been a part of the Wildcats' rotation for all four years he spent on the Main Line. Now, the graduating senior is looking forward to life after college, and hoping that he can pursue the NFL dream.
Bridges was selected by CAA coaches to the All-CAA Second Team after the 2012 season. He recorded 68 tackles (42 solo) and 4.5 sacks as a senior. He was one of the CAA's leaders in tackles-for-loss in the Fall.
Will a team watching this highlight reel want to draft him? Chances are low that he will be that high on the draft boards, but a contract to head into camp as an undrafted free-agent is not out of the question. Darrel Young of the Washington Redskins started his pro career out as an undrafted Villanova linebacker and now he starts for the NFC East winners.
