Nathan Stupar was drafted out of Linebacker U. Regardless of what the college is famous for now, they have been able to produce solid linebackers on a yearly basis. Nathan has a really high football IQ and comes in as a very disciplined player. How’s that for a change of pace huh? Disciplined? He also comes from a pedigree of NFL players which include a brother Jonathan Stupar who most recently played TE for the Baltimore Ravens and an uncle Jeff Hostetler who is a former quarterback of the Raiders.

Stupar started 7 games his senior season at outside linebacker and collected 73 tackles which included 6.5 tackles for a loss and 2 sacks. He’s still is a bit of an unknown though having played behind a rich crop of linebackers at Penn State. Stupar projects to battle for a special teams spot his first season while he attempts to make his mark on defense. Expect him to add weight to his frame to help be more competitive at the next level. He looks to have a decent frame to play at 250-255.
