Signee profile: DL Devaunte Sigler

Devaunte Sigler, a 6-foot-4, 250-pound linebacker/defensive end from Mobile, Ala., is Auburn's latest signee.

Sigler committed late last month, picking Auburn over LSU and Mississippi State.

He played outside linebacker his senior season in B.C. Rain's 3-4 scheme, finishing with 100 tackles, but he projects as a defensive lineman in college, either outside or, if he continues to add size, on the inside.

Because of his limited experience on the line, he might take a while to develop his technique working out of a three-point stance.

  • Committed: Jan. 26, 2011
  • Recruited by: Tracy Rocker, Curtis Luper
  • Also considered: LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Texas Tech
  • Rivals: 64 position (OLB), 23 state
  • Scout: 44 position (DE)
  • ESPN: 46 position (DE)
  • Notable: Sigler is the cousin of former Alabama player and current Blount High coach Kelvin Sigler
  • Quotable: "It might be a goal for some, but I will be the next Nick Fairley." -- Sigler

Here's a free scouting report on Sigler courtesy of Scout's Scott Kennedy:
Sigler has good size and is a good athlete that posseses good speed and change of direction. He's a good enough athlete that he lines up at linebacker at times, despite having a frame that could make him a defensive tackle one day. Sigler is more of a prospect than a player at this stage of his career, as he seems to lack some basic disengaging skills. Sigler played for a bad HS team, and motivation could have played a factor.

I thought I posted this earlier, but I can't find it (sleep deprivation), so I'm sorry if you're reading this twice, but I'm liking your profiles, especially the quotes. I loved Blackson's--very sweet.

Thankfully no problems with tweets today. Keep 'em coming!
