Clayton: Huskies LB Keishawn Bierria enhanced his draft stock with best game of season
Washington Huskies linebacker Keishawn Bierria is coming off his best game of the season, recording eight tackles and a fumble recovery in UW’s blowout win over Oregon last Saturday.
That will only enhance his draft stock.
The 6-foot-1, 225-pound inside linebacker has second- and third-round grades for the 2018 NFL Draft, and he’s living up to all of his positive ratings. A senior this season, Bierria has had a great career in Washington, including taking second-team All-Pac-12 honors in 2016.
Bierra is an opportunist, having made eight fumble recoveries during his Husky career. And he is one of the reasons the Huskies have one of the best defenses in the country. In fact, right now they rank No. 1 in the FBS.
