Harvard senior edge rusher Zack Hodges accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.
Hodges, we should note, now spells his name "Zack" instead of "Zach." A consensus preseason FCS All-American candidate, Hodges, a three-year starter, is an athletic and powerful edge rusher. Harvard HC Tim Murphy believes Hodges is a future 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL, and Phil Savage, Executive Director of the Senior Bowl, agrees with him. "Zack is an intriguing developmental prospect as an NFL 3-4 OLB with potential starter ability (meaning within 3 years)," Savage wrote. "In the meantime, he can contribute as a 3rd down pass rusher and as a core special teamer. He has the size, overall quickness and playmaking talent to be effective in the pros, if he can master the run/pass keys required of an OLB. His overall playing instincts as an OLB projection would be the biggest question mark on him at this time."
