2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Bruce Irvin, OLB, West Virginia
With the Mountaineers, he had 14 sacks in very limited play in 2010. The reality is that while his pass-rushing potential is truly elite, he's a very raw prospect who has had very little coaching and practice. He is only in his second year with the Mountaineers and whoever takes a chance on him will need to groom him into their defense.
Irvin finished with 22.5 sacks in his two years at WVU, but teams have to be concerned about his ability on first down to make a difference as a run stopper. He's currently undersized and many larger offensive linemen would have no trouble overpowering him.
With a really good combine performance, Irvin secured his place as a Top 40 prospect.
