NFL preseason preview for Defensive End, Aaron Maybin who was taken as the #11 selection in the 2009 NFL draft class to the Buffalo Bills.
Number 11 Pick: Buffalo Bills – Aaron Maybin (DE, Penn State)
The Buffalo Bills used the 11th pick in the 2009 NFL draft to take Aaron Maybin from Penn State. Maybin stands 6’4” and weighs in at 249 lbs. The Bills are looking for a pass rusher and may have their man in Maybin.
Maybin’s experience is on the thin side with only one year as a starter for the Nittany Lions, but it was impressive. He tallied 12 sacks in his final season. He had 49 tackles with 20 for negative yards. He has amazing speed and may be the fastest end in the country. He can run past most blockers on the edge. To add to his speed Maybin has incredible technique.
Maybin is a hard worker who came out of high school on the lighter-side but worked in college to add over 20 pounds of muscle. Most scouts believe that he can add even more bulk without losing speed. NFL teams expect that Maybin can grow into a defensive stopper in the league. He works the entire play using his speed to chase downfield plays. He often uses his height to disrupt the passing lanes.
Aaron Maybin needs some seasoning with an NFL team. Experience and coaching will teach him some pass rushing moves and give him the strength to push his blockers back into the ball. He has a habit of running straight up the field. With the right coaching and weight training, Maybin has the ability to make a real impact in the NFL.
