After Record-Breaking Year, Carl Nassib Ready For The NFL

Posted Feb 3, 2016

Carl Nassib stood above the rest during his senior season in 2015, as the 6-foot-7, 272 pounder led the country in sacks.

Carl Nassib stood above the rest during his senior season in 2015, as the 6-foot-7, 272 pounder led the country in sacks.

Penn State defensive end Carl Nassib believes he can be a pass rush nightmare for any NFL team. If he produces the way he did during his senior season, that shouldn’t be a problem.

Nassib led all of the Football Bowl Series in sacks during the 2015 season with 15.5, two more than anyone else.

His 15.5 sacks -- he recorded a career-high three sacks in a victory over Buffalo on Sept. 12 -- were a Penn State single-season record.

That production came in just 10 games.

“A lot of hard work, a lot of extra work behind the scenes that went unnoticed,” Nassib told Redskins.com of his breakout season. “That’s the kind of attitude I had, I was going to do the same work, have the same mindset no matter if people noticed or didn’t notice and it worked out.”

Playing in last week’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., Nassib believes he’s already found new ways to get to the quarterback thanks to going against the very best seniors in the country.

“I found some new moves that I would like to incorporate into my game that I haven’t learned before,” Nassib said. “And I’m very happy with the week that I’ve had.”

Nassib, the younger brother York Giants quarterback Ryan Nassib, joined Penn State as a walk-on in 2011.

He would redshirt the 2011 season and not accumulate any game action during his redshirt freshman season in 2012.

But in 2013, Nassib slowly began working his way up the Nittany Lions’ depth chart.

By his senior season, he was among the very best on a roster that also has defensive end Austin Johnson participating in the Senior Bowl.

“It’s a lot of fun,” Nassib said of participating in the Senior Bowl. “You’ve got a lot of great guys here and everybody’s competing and everybody’s working their [butts] off right now, and I’m just really impressed by a lot of players here that I didn’t know had some of the stuff that they brought, so I’m really impressed with a lot of people.”

Nassib said between now and the NFL Combine later this month in Indianapolis, and then April’s NFL Draft, he’s going to build on his biggest strength: pass rush ability.

“I’m going to focus on the things I’ve been focusing on for the last five years,” Nassib said. “I’m going to focus on my technique. This upcoming phase, I’m going to focus on my technique in the 40, all that jazz. So yeah, I’m looking forward to it.”
