FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Sam Acho is not your average football player in oh so many ways. But however all those aspects of this interesting, multi-faceted man add up, the result is a versatile, fast, smart-as-whip outside linebacker who loves to get after the quarterback.
A second round draft pick out of Texas, where he earned a business degree with a double major in business honors and marketing, Acho is firmly in place at outside linebacker, half of the young OLB tandem that has O'Brien Schofield on the other side.
A year ago, as Acho arrived as a rookie, people wondered if he could adjust to the necessities of a 3-4 defense. Now, people wonder just how long it will take for him to be an NFL star.
