Eastern Michigan redshirt junior DE Maxx Crosby declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.
Crosby (6'5/265) closed the 2018 regular season having recorded 70 tackles (19.5 for loss), 7.5 sacks an interception and four forced fumbles. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes he could crack Day 2 festivities. He forwards that the EMU standout's draft stock would be helped with a 40-yard dash run under 4.75 seconds come the spring and also notes that a palatable weight for draft purposes would be around 255 pounds.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists Eastern Michigan redshirt junior DE Maxx Crosby as one of his Week 7 risers are his performance on Saturday against Toledo.

Crosby made three tackles for loss against the Rockets on Saturday, which gives him 4.5 of them for the year. He also is up to 4.5 sacks on the year, which is an even more impressive number to Pauline because he's faced three teams (San Diego State, Purdue and Northern Illinois) who have pro prospects at left tackle. "The junior has excellent length (6'5/265), movement skills and plays with great intensity," he writes. "As with any underclassmen, Crosby’s true computer numbers loom large in dictating where he’s ultimately selected in the draft but his ability to make plays behind the line of scrimmage is enticing."

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline gives Eastern Michigan redshirt junior DE Maxx Crosby a sixth-round grade coming into the 2018 season.

Crosby was a pressure machine for the Eagles in 2017, registering a whopping 53 on the season. He also posted 11 sacks and 57 tackles, 16.5 of them for a loss. Pauline notes that Crosby will need to get strong (6'5/265), but "can bend off the edge and quickly gets into the backfield to disrupt the action." Assuming he has another big season in 2018, he could see his name called on day three -- maybe sooner if a team believes in his upside.

Eastern Michigan redshirt junior DE Maxx Crosby logged 53 total quarterback pressures during the 2017 season.

Per Pro Football Focus, those 53 pressures were good for fifth-most in the country by an edge rusher. On the whole, the 6-foot-5, 265-pound Crosby posted 57 tackles (16.5 for loss), 11 sacks and a hearty quartet of fumbles forced. He initially landed with Eastern Michigan as a two-star recruit, so it's been a special developmental road to this juncture. At the close of the upcoming season, Crosby will be eligible to declare for the draft should he so choose.
