5. Robert Welsh, DE, Syracuse
Week 1 stats: 6 tackles (4 solo,) 1 sack, 1 INT
In his first career start, Welsh made quite an impact. He was disruptive at the line of scrimmage, made plays in the backfield and even registered his first career interception. Although Syracuse did not play well as a team, Welsh made his presence felt and will be somebody to watch as the season progresses.
