The 2007 Buck Buchanan Award winner as the best defensive player in the Football Championship Series (formerly D-IAA), Biermann will have to make the transition from his customary defensive end position to outside linebacker in the NFL. Biermann used his burst off the snap, instincts and high motor to rack up gaudy numbers last season (72 tackles, 15 sacks, five forced fumbles) in helping lead Montana to a national championship.



Positives: Instinctive. ... Good initial quickness off the snap to gain an advantage on the offensive tackle, and shows the balance to dip his shoulder and generate speed around the edge. ... Uses his hands well to slap away the pass blocker's initial attempts to block him. ... High-effort player who pursues with passion. ... Flashes some explosiveness as a hitter, forcing five fumbles as a senior. Negatives: Classic 'tweener prospect who some feel is a product of Montana's system. ... Good straight-line speed, but doesn't play up to this speed, especially when asked to move backward. ... Good use of hands to slap away the initial attempt of pass blockers, but lacks the strength to hold up once truly engaged. ... Instinctive, high-effort player who may be maxed out.
