NFL Combine 2012: Penn State's Devon Still Believes He's Best Defensive Tackle In NFL Draft

Throughout his senior season at Penn State, defensive tackle Devon Still was humble about his success, choosing to talk about team goals while keeping the talk about his own play on the down low.

With the 2012 NFL Draft quickly approaching, however, Still is ready to sell himself and his accomplishments with some strong words as The Philadelphia Daily News' Les Bowen reports.

"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.

...

"To be honest, I don't think I would model my game after anybody," Still said. "My goal throughout college and my goal getting into the NFL is to make my own mark, to have somebody style their game after mine."

Certainly, there's no lack of confidence in the attitude of this 6-foot-5, 310-pound monster in the middle who finished 2011 with 55 tackles, including 17 for a loss to go with 4.5 sacks. Still is projected by many to be selected in the first round of the draft in April.
