According to various sources, the Patriots will workout Clemson OLB Ricky Sapp sometime in the next few days. The Patriots already have private workouts scheduled with LSU’s Al Woods and Iowa’s Tony Moeaki.
Ricky Sapp is an explosive pass-rush specialist with a lightning-quick first step. As he projects to be a 3-4 OLB, he is trying to bulk up a bit to be able to set the edge better against the run. The Patriots should be very interested to see if Sapp has athletic enough hips to cover as well.
Other potential OLB targets in the 2010 NFL Draft include Jerry Hughes of TCU, Sergio Kindle of Texas, and Brandon Graham of Michigan.
