06/25/2012 - Top-five Wake Forest prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. OLB Joey Ehrmann (6-4, 220)...Expected to fill the shoes of the departed Kyle Wilber as the team's top pass rusher, Ehrmann lines up as a hybrid linebacker in Wake's 3-4 defensive scheme. He has strong football bloodlines as his father Joe was drafted 10th overall in the 1973 NFL Draft out of Syracuse, playing 13 years of professional football at defensive tackle. The younger Ehrmann was a lightly recruited prep player out of Maryland, choosing the Demon Deacons over Duke, Iowa and Syracuse. After redshirting in 2008, he saw immediate playing time as a freshman before becoming a full-time starter in 2010 as a sophomore, recording 67 tackles over his first two seasons. Ehrmann had his most productive season last year (13 starts) with 54 tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss, one forced fumble and one interception. He isn't the most flexible or balanced athlete, but he plays with an intense motor and doesn't quit until the echo of the whistle. Ehrmann only has five career sacks, but he will be expected to be the Demon Deacons top pass rush option in 2012. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
