07/09/2012 - Top-five Temple prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 1. DL John Youboty (6-4, 260)...The younger brother of former Ohio State third round cornerback Ashton, John Youboty (pictured above) has the frame of an edge rusher, but plays mainly inside at defensive tackle for the Owls. He transferred from Marshall last season and showed enough in his first year at Temple to earn the top spot on this list. Youboty was a three-star defensive end out of high school and received scholarship offers from big programs like Michigan State, Nebraska and Missouri. However, he decided to enroll at Marshall to play for head coach Mark Snyder who coached his brother as the defensive coordinator at Ohio State. After redshirting in 2008, he played in every game as a back-up in 2009, recording 13 tackles and 2.5 sacks. However, Snyder was fired prior to the 2010 season and Youboty found himself lost on the depth chart under the new coaching staff. He decided to transfer to Temple in 2011 and earned a waiver from the NCAA to play right away, starting seven games last season at tackle and finishing with 18 tackles, 2.0 tackles for loss, 1.0 sack and 1 fumble recovery. Youboty is playing out of position for the Owls, but works his tail off with an obvious passion for the game. He is a tad undersized to play with his hand on the ground and it will be interesting to see how Temple uses him in 2012. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
