INDIANAPOLIS -- Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still, who probably figures to be drafted somewhere around the Eagles' 15th overall slot in April, is not soft-peddling his skills.
"I think hands-down I'm the best defensive tackle in this draft," Still said in a session with the media Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock says he has first-round grades on five to seven d-tackles this year, so Still's claim is a bold one.
Still, a Camden native who grew up in Wilmington, said he clocked in at 6-5, 303. He will begin interviews with NFL teams tonight, he said, and doesn't know which teams have requested his presence.
Still talked about the turbulent end to his Penn State career -- the Jerry Sandusky scandal that caused the firing of head coach Joe Paterno, the harsh spotlight the team faced under interim coach Tom Bradley, then Paterno's abrupt death last month after he suffered complications from lung cancer treatment.
