Northern Iowa's Pedescleaux Racking Up NFL Miles

Northern Iowa defensive end Everette Pedescleaux, a transfer from the University of Minnesota, visited the Arizona Cardinals last week and has several other upcoming visits, according to a league source.
The 6’6, 305-pound defensive lineman is also scheduled to visit the New York Giants, Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns, Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints.
Pedescleaux was a third-team All-American selection last season, recording 62 tackles, 11 1/2 tackles for losses and 6 1/2 sacks.
He blocked six kicks at Northern Iowa, where he also played on the basketball team. The former Minnesota Mr. Basketball finalist averaged 20.1 points and 9.4 rebounds per game as a high school senior.
Pedescleaux has run the 40-yard dash in 4.88 seconds. He bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times in testing for NFL teams.

    Its about time someone payed homage to my current educator’s athletes. Pedescleaux is a freaking animal. And just wait, there will be another guy coming out next year you will all be talking about, and his name is James Ruffin. Watch out for Darrell Lloyd too, coach Farley has these FCS players ready to play in the big leagues.

    He stopped playing basketball a couple years ago, and never got much playing time.
