Zach Hodges 2New England colleges don’t usually see their prospects get picked early in the NFL draft, but in 2015, Zach Hodges is likely to break that mold.

Hodges, an outside linebacker/defensive end for the Harvard Crimson, is projected to go in the second or third round of the 2015 NFL draft, according to NFLDraftScout.com. He has recorded 92 tackles in his career including 31 tackles for a loss. He also has 17.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, three recoveries and an interception.

Hodges also was named Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year and was an All-American in 2013.

But Hodges isn’t the only college football player in New England with a shot at being drafted by an NFL team. Boston College, UConn and University of New Hampshire have some stand-outs, too.
