UConn's Mikal Myers on PFF's list of Breakout Players

UConn defensive tackle Mikal Myers comes in at No. 14 on Pro Football Focus' list of breakout players for the upcoming season.

Myers had 26 tackles including four tackles for loss as a junior as he backed up captain Julian Campenni. Myers has played all 25 games in the last two seasons making three starts as he has recorded 56 tackles including 10 for loss and two sacks.

The PFF report said that Myers could rank among the highest rated run defenders in the country with his snap count expected to increase this season when he figures to be a full-time starter.

Tomorrow's practice is the first of the preseason camp open to the media so stay tuned for some updates and observations in my first look at the team since the spring game.

On Saturday fans will get a chance to see the Huskies practice at Rentschler Field
