Nassib, Carl

Card: Panini Contenders 2016
Acquired: 2016, Box Breaker

Carl Nassib has a nice frame clocking in at 6’7″, 277.  A great story out of Penn State, Nassib was a walk on with a motor that never quit. In his final year at Penn State, Carl led the nation with 15.5 sacks (single season sack record) and 6 forced fumbles from defensive end.  Going into the 2016 draft a lot of scouts liked what they saw, but felt that Carl was still pretty raw. The Cleveland Browns selected Carl near the top of round 3 and he played a fair amount during his rookie season despite suffering from a broken hand. The former Nittany Lion started 3 games and earned 15 tackles, 4 pass defensed, and 2.5 sacks.
