Well, we all know the Philadelphia Eagles need linebackers.

The Colorado Buffaloes have come a long way from the days of Kordell Stewart and former Philadelphia Eagles punter Dirk Johnson, but if you don’t catch many of their games, you should give it a try in 2021. They always play hard, and they normally field some guys who are worth watching.

Earlier, you read about Mustafa Johnson. If you’re taking notes, you may want to also write down Nate Landman’s name. He’s a six-foot-three, 235-pound linebacker that racked up 284 tackles in 36 career games.

Add that to the ten career sacks, two forced fumbles, and three interceptions that he’s also responsible for, and you can see why he might turn a few heads as we enter the third day of the 2021 NFL Draft.

There’s just one more thing. Who else thought that the plural form of buffalo was still buffalo? Nevermind. Let’s move on.
