Four former Mississippi State football players are participating in the 2024 NFL Combine. One former Bulldog in attendance is defensive lineman Jaden Crumedy. A five-year starter along the defensive line, Crumedy finished his career with 119 tackles, 8.5 sacks, and 16 tackles for loss.

Jaden Crumedy is a fantastic run defender. And though is pass rush numbers don't necessarily jump off the page, he was a massive (literally) presence along the defensive interior for Mississippi State, often making an impact in ways that don't show up on the stat sheet. His ability to eat up space freed up rush lanes for blitzers in State's aggressive defense, like linebacker Nathaniel Watson.

Though that's not to say he can't be an incredibly disruptive pass rusher on his own...

Mississippi State has a long history of producing big time defensive lineman, and Jaden Crumedy is looking to become the next. How did he perform at the Combine?
