Nick Kwiatkoski   #44 ILB

Height: 6-2   Weight: 242   Age: 26

Born: 5/26/1993 Pittsburgh , PA

College: West Virginia

Experience: 4th season

High School: Bethel Park HS [PA]









Draft 2016

Pick No.113

Selected By: Chicago Bears

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 15 (113)

Pick Analysis: The heart and soul of the Mountaineers' defense (not to mention their leading tackler the past three seasons), Kwiatkoski (quit-KOW-ski) brings toughness to the field and is an explosive tackler. As a redshirt sophomore in 2013 starting at the Will spot, Kwiatkoski led the team with 86 tackles (6.5 for loss, two sacks) while also intercepting three passes. He made 11.5 tackles for loss among his 103 stops from the middle in 2014, and earned first-team All-Big 12 notice with his 86 tackles, ten for loss, three sacks, three interceptions, and seven pass breakups as a senior playing the Sam. Playing three different linebacker spots, while keeping the athleticism that he had as a high school receiver and safety, will gain looks from NFL scouts.
