04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Texans' picks: Round 4/126 - Jared Crick, DE, 6-4, 279, Nebraska...A steal in the fourth round after missing his last seven games with a torn pectoral muscle. He'll play end in the three-man front, then move inside and become part of the rotation in passing situations. - The Sports Xchange

04/26/2012 - ROB RANG'S TOP 50 PLAYERS OF THE 2012 NFL DRAFT: 42. Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska: A sprained knee and torn pectoral muscle limited Crick to just five games in 2011 but the 6-4, 279 pounder entered the season with first round grades from some scouts after having proven during an All-American campaign a year earlier (70 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks) that he wasn't just riding Ndamukong Suh's coat-tails. Crick isn't the fearful pass rusher than his statistics would indicate but does have the size, strength and tenacity that teams operating out of the 3-4 scheme are looking for at the five-technique defensive end position. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/19/2012 - Unlike a year ago, when the talent pool seemed chock-full of five-technique defensive end possibilities for 3-4 fronts, there aren't a lot of candidates for the 2012 draft. One guy who is getting attention, and who might have worked himself up to the third round, in part because of the thin crop at the position is Jared Crick of Nebraska. The former Cornhuskers' standout has some injury concerns, and at 279 pounds at the combine, isn't nearly as bulky as some teams would prefer as a 3-4 end. But Crick, who ran under five seconds in Indy, is deceptively strong, can hold the point, and really uses his hands well to get rid of blockers. At 6-feet-4 1/4, he might not be able to hold a lot more weight, and a lot of teams project him more as a 4-3 guy who can move inside on third down, but he has some natural 3-4 skills, and is getting play as such. - Len Pasquarelli, The Sports Xchange

04/19/2012 - 04/18 NFL DRAFT SCOUT FALLER: Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska...While Ndamukong Suh was tearing up the Big 12 a few years back, a sophomore defensive tackle right next to him was making his own name for himself. However Jared Crick hasn't had the same type of impact since Suh left Lincoln and there are strong concerns about where he will play at the next level. After missing the second half of the 2011 season with a torn pectoral muscle, Crick looked very average in his pre-draft workouts, especially with the 40-yard dash (4.95) and bench press (26). And at 6-4, 280 pounds with shorter arms (32"), he has a tweener skill-set creates concern about where he will "fit" at the next level. Crick stays balanced and fights with a relentless attitude, but plays too high and isn't a natural bender, losing the leverage battle. Once thought to be a candidate to sneak into the first round, Crick's draft stock is currently moving in the other direction. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

03/21/2012 - 03/20/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska: Entering the 2011 season, Crick was thought to be a first-round caliber player, but a torn pectoral muscle in October put those projections in doubt. He missed the remainder of his final season in Lincoln and was unable to participate in the Senior Bowl. But Crick looked healthy at the Combine with decent times in the 40-yard dash (4.95), vertical (31.0"), broad jump (8'8), short shuttle (4.40) and 3-cone drill (7.47). He also lifted 26 reps of 225-pounds on the bench press at Nebraska's pro day last week, putting to rest any concerns about his pectoral muscle. Crick might not return to his round one standing he had entering the year, but he has worked his way back from his season-ending injury to show NFL scouts he's at near-full health. He isn't expected to escape the second round because of his natural size and foot quickness. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

03/13/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT TOP DOWN DEFENSIVE LINEMEN: Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska, 6-4, 279, 2...Crick decided to return to Nebraska rather than join last year's draft, but his senior season was literally painful. He sprained a knee in spring practice and had a series of injuries during the season until he was sidelined for good in October because of a torn pectoral muscle. He was still not mended enough to do the bench press at the combine. Crick finished his career No. 8 on the school's sack list with 20, including 9 ?? each in 2009 and 2010. A former Nebraska prep track (shot put) and football sensation, Crick ignored offers from all over the country when he considered only Nebraska. Pro scouts do not see him as a pure pass rusher, but rather as a 3-4 end and he was invited to the combine as a defensive end. He plays with excellent technique and wins most hand fights, but lacks the foot speed to be a real pass-rush threat. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

03/09/2012 - The Nebraska football program held its annual pro day workouts on Thursday, March 8, giving 13 former Huskers a chance to display their skills for over 20 NFL scouts. The former Huskers worked out inside the Hawks Championship Center for over two hours as they went through drills which included the 40-yard dash, vertical jump and bench press, along with individual position drills. Cornerback Marcus Mendoza had one of the more impressive days of any Husker, posting a 45 ??-inch vertical jump, which is a new Nebraska record. Mendoza also clocked a 4.37 40-yard dash. Jared Crick, who also worked out at the NFL Combine in February, participated in the bench press where he tallied 26 reps. Crick is coming off of a pectoral injury which he suffered during the Ohio State game on Oct. 8. Lavonte David, Alfonzo Dennard, Mike Caputo, Curenski Gilleylen, Brandon Kinnie, Jermarcus Hardrick, Austin Cassidy, Marcel Jones, Austin Jones, Terrence Moore and Tyler Legate also participated in pro day. - Nebraska football

03/08/2012 - NFLDraftScout.com's fifth-ranked defensive end Jared Crick of Nebraska, who missed most of last season because of a torn pectoral muscle that ended his season in October, proved to scouts he's fully recovered from the injury by pushing up 26 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press. Crick, who is ranked 54th overall but has a chance to be drafted higher because of his scheme versatility and impressive production, first climbed onto the draft radar as a sidekick of Ndamukong Suh. But in 2010, with Suh in his rookie season with the Lions, Crick had a standout season. He has shorter arms than ideal for a true power end in a 4-3 scheme, but his lower-body power, agility and hand use make him attractive as a slanting 4-3 defensive tackle or 3-4 defensive end. The star of the pro day was RB Marcus Mendoza (5-10, 190), who posted a reported 4.37 40, 45 1/2-inch vertical and 11-1 broad jump. If the vertical proves true, it's beats the best number put up at the 2012 Combine (43.5). - NFLDraftScout.com

02/23/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT PRE-COMBINE TOP 64: 52. Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska, 6-4, 285, 2...Crick decided to return to Nebraska rather than join last year's draft, but his senior season was literally painful. He sprained a knee in spring practice, then had a series of injuries during the season until he was sidelined for good in October with a torn pectoral muscle. He finished his career No. 8 on the school's sack list with 20, including 9.5 each in 2009 and 2010. A former Nebraska prep track (shot put) and football sensation, Crick ignored offers from all over the country when he considered only Nebraska. Pro scouts do not see him as a pure pass rusher, but rather as a 3-4 end. He plays with excellent technique and wins most hand fights, but lacks the foot speed to be a real pass rush threat. - Frank Cooney - The Sports Xchange, NFL Draft Scout

10/12/2011 - No. 14 Nebraska has lost defensive tackle Jared Crick for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. Coach Bo Pelini disclosed the severity of the injury Wednesday as the Huskers (5-1, 1-1 Big Ten) head into their bye week. Crick, a 6-foot-6, 285-pound senior from Cozad, Neb., was seventh on the defense with 22 tackles this season, including a sack. He ranks eighth on the Nebraska career sacks list with 20, including 9.5 in both 2009 and 2010. Crick played in five games this season, but didn't suit up against Wyoming on Sept. 24 after suffering an unspecified injury against Washington a week earlier. Pelini says losing Crick is a tough blow. He also says he believes Crick has a bright future in pro football. - AP Sports

09/20/2011 - Nebraska defensive tackle Jared Crick is questionable for Saturday's game at Wyoming because of an injury. Defensive coordinator Carl Pelini declined to disclose the nature of Crick's injury after Tuesday's practice. Crick was hurt in the ninth-ranked Cornhuskers' win over Washington last week. Crick, a two-time first-team all-conference selection, had six tackles and his first sack of the season against the Huskies. - AP Sports

09/10/2011 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: All-in-all, not a bad start Saturday for Nebraska's defense, which had three-first time starters, and a walk-on freshman, Trevor Roach, filling in the majority of the game at middle linebacker. The depth and talent along the defensive line has been well-noted, but playing up to eight different linemen can present some communications problems. "If everybody's going to be playing more of a role, we're definitely going to have to be working on our communication better, getting guys on the same page," said senior tackle Jared Crick, entering his third year as a starter. "We rotated a lot of guys in, had a lot of different combinations. Guys were playing with guys out there they're really not used to playing with. As a defensive line, I think we had six or seven combinations alone." - The Sports Xchange

08/23/2011 - Nebraska's deepest and most-talented position will be defensive line, a group that brings a combined 58 starts into the season. That includes two-year starter Jared Crick, who will attempt to become Nebraska's first three-time, first-team all-conference performer since 1997-99. He ranks seventh on the school's all-time sacks list with 19. Husker seniors say improving team chemistry with team functions has been a major emphasis over the summer. "Last winter, after the bowl game, we kind of took it upon ourselves to say, 'This is our team now, this is what we want to get done,'" Crick said, referring to Nebraska's humbling 19-7 loss to unranked Washington in the Holiday Bowl. "And to do those things, we've got to become a closer-knit group. Not knocking on the leaders last year, but we want to become a closer unit than we were in the past." - The Sports Xchange
