            Sabino arrived in Columbus as one of the highest recruits in the country, but his Buckeyes career was largely disappointing. He was a five-star linebacker out of Miami and surprised many when he chose Ohio State over Southern Cal, Miami and Urban Meyer's Florida Gators.

            Sabino played in all 26 games as a freshman and sophomore, but mostly on special teams as he struggled to break into the starting lineup. He found himself on the bench again in 2010 so he took a healthy redshirt, giving him time to catch up mentally while saving a year of eligibility.Sabino played in every game as a junior (five starts), finishing fifth on the team with 62 tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss.

            He built on that with an All-Big Ten honorable mention 2012 season despite missing several games with a broken fibula that required surgery. He ranked third on the team with 37 tackles through six games, and finished the season with 45 tackles in eight games.

            With his raw athletic tools and upside, Sabino is still very much on the radar of NFL scouts as potential mid-round prospect.

              He went to OSU because he played in High School under Chris Spielman's dad.

                Looks as if he almost knocked himself out. LOL

                  A special teams highlight and he rung his own bell.

                        Giants signed Ohio State LB Etienne Sabino.Sabino (6-foot-2, 247) made 13 career starts as a Buckeye, recording 10.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. He missed four games as a senior with a fractured fibula, but returned to finish out the season. Sabino ran 4.75 at the Combine with a 1.66 ten-yard split and did 24 reps on the bench. He'll compete for a spot at the bottom of the roster with the Giants.

                          Yup, that's a Jerry Reese linebacker, right there.

                            Etienne Sabino signing

                            Etienne Sabino is the typical case of a great recruiting prospect who underachieved early. However, he finally hit his stride as a redshirt junior and senior and turned into an excellent all-around player with talent that projects to the NFL. He's going to make a coach happy with his play on the field and could end up starting much sooner than expected.

                            Follow along to uncover all of his talents and weaknesses.

                            Overall Strengths

                            + Etienne Sabino is a coach's dream in the locker room.

                            + He's quick enough to play inside or outside as a sideline-to-sideline player.

                            + His great hand usage helps his abilities in other areas a lot.

                            + He is a talented, instinctual run defender.

                            + His pass rush is very effective from all angles.

                            Overall Weaknesses

                            - Sabino's tackling form is inconsistent throughout games.

                            - Coverage outside of a short zone will be a huge weakness for him.

                            Draft Projection

                            Etienne Sabino is an early third-round pick or later. He should easily find himself in an NFL camp in 2013.


                            Etienne Sabino is a quick player. He is strong and has a long, rangy frame. He can quickly diagnose plays and shows a ton of intelligence in his game. He's fast off the snap and has good lateral and straightforward speed, which he relies on in both the passing and running game. He has the speed to stick with linebackers or get around the edge on blitzes when he gets called upon to do so.
                            Players come and go on the Free Agency Merry-Go-Round, but the N.Y. Giants will always be here!

                              Awwaiting move of post in 1...2.............

                              Sounds like a J Will type of linebacker. Maybe the new NASCAR will be a total jailbreak to include fast linebackers with the defensive backs going into a prevent style formation.
