Notes from Liucci’s thoughts on Madubuike

  • Brauny and I were talking about who would lead the team in sacks. He went with Tyree Johnson. I went with Madubuike. If it weren’t for a couple of facemasks, he would’ve lead the team in sacks last year. He would’ve had 8.5, maybe 9.0 sacks as an interior lineman.

  • This year, with Johnson, Bobby Brown and Jayden Peevy, that will free up Madubuike on the pass rush. You can move him around a lot too.

  • If he makes another jump like he did from his freshman to sophomore season, he could be a first-round draft picks. He looks the part. At times, he’s tough to block. He’s very disruptive. I would not be surprised if Mike Elko made some more moves to make him even more disruptive this year.

  • I won’t call him this year’s Quinten Williams. It doesn’t often happen where a guy comes out of nowhere like that. Madubuike is already on the map because he played well last year.

  • His freshman year, he hurt his back and was out for a good part of the season. He’s a fourth-year junior. He was probably the most improved player on the team last year just because he hadn’t played that much. He could leave and be a top ten to 15 pick in the draft.

  • When he came on his visit, he was 250 pounds. He was an end. I always get him confused with Myles Garrett on who had the more impressive high school tape. He was a really good high school defensive end. He still moves like an end even though he’s an inside guy. He could still play end now, even at 300 pounds.

  • He will show out at the combine, whenever that comes. Unfortunately, for A&M, that will probably be this next combine. I expect him to have a tremendous season this year and impress a lot of people.

  • Some make a big deal about the guys who left this season. Those guys weren’t always a huge part of the plan, but they were huge for depth upfront. This defensive line with Peevy, Brown and Madubuike is still very talented and clear up a lot for those linebackers. Madubuike is a considerable part of that.

  • I think he can do more than 8.0 sacks and 15 tackles for loss this season. That’s high, but I think he can still do more. I believe he could up his tackles for loss number this year.
