Giants work out DT

National Football Post reporting that William and Mary defensive tackle Sean Lissemore will work out with the Giants.

The 6-3 , 298-pounder had an impressive pro day on March 17, where 22 teams appeared for the workouts. Lissemore ran a 4.85 40-yard-dash and posted a 30.0 vertical jump and 9-8 broad jump. He also put up 36 reps on the bench press.

NFL Draft Scout rates him No. 28 among defensive tackle prospects and projects him either as a seventh-rounder or a free agent.

I just read and watched a video on him the other day.



One of the more popular of the William & Mary recruits is defensive tackle Sean Lissemore. Lissemore has to be one of the only, if not the only, defensive tackle to enter a draft as a former track star in high school. His 11.20 seconds in the 100m made him one of the best sprinters in New Jersey. A high school linebacker at 6'3, 240 pounds, Lissemore has since gained 50+ pounds yet managed to keep his linebacker speed. His 4.83 40 yard dash would have placed him among the fastest DTs at the combine if he had received an invite.

With all that speed, the next, logical step is to question his strength. His 36 reps on the bench press would have earned him third amongst the defensive lineman at the combine. His 30 inch vertical is very respectable for anybody near the 300 pound weight range. Clearly Lissemore is an athlete with the necessary NFL measurables.

Production is the only thing left to look at production and Lissemore has that too. Although hampered by a nagging shoulder injury that hurt his stat totals in his sophomore year and even affected his play into the beginning of his junior season, Lissemore pulled it all together during his senior campaign. In 14 games, Lissemore accumulated 66 tackles, 14 of which came for a loss, 6.5 sacks and 2 interceptions. All very good numbers from the DT position.

Definitely a Follow Meat Head

Nice interview.

He shows a nice burst and certainly has the athletic ability to give it a run at the next level.
Is it the division 1AA thing holding him back from being drafted any higher?

I think so. The level of competition seems to always play a factor. He definitely needs work on his technique. Since W&M had a few other pro quality players he's getting noticed a little easier though. Last year Derek Cox and with him this year Adrian Tracy.

Lissemore seems like a good rotational guy in the middle and Tracy a potential starter at OLB in a 3-4.
