Get to Know Your Orange Man: DE #94 Robert Welsh

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

We're counting down to the beginning of football season and I need to buy a personal organizer. Here's the profile of the senior defensive end.

Name: Robert Welsh

Position: Defensive End

Year: Senior

Height: 6-3

Hometown: Bay Shore, NY

High School: Saint Anthony's H.S.

2013 Stats: Welsh appeared in all thirteen games for the second season in a row, racking up 26 solo tackles and 32 total tackles. He also tallied four sacks and an interception on the campaign. His best week came in his first start of his Syracuse career in the MetLife opener versus Penn State. Welsh recorded six tackles and was named the ACC's Defensive Lineman of the week.

2014 Projections: Welsh should be an integral part of the defensive line. He's obviously shown the capability to be an above average pass rusher and should be part of a defensive line that anchors Syracuse's defense next season.

How'd he get here? Presumably by car since he's from NY. He was seriously considering Hofstra, New Hampshire and Rutgers S.U.N.J before coming to Cuse.

What'd recruiting sites say? In yet another case of "Let's never listen to these sites again but we always do/need to," Welsh was a two star recruit over at rivals.

Money Quote: "For me a batted ball is just as good as a sack," said Welsh in this one on one with Dan Tortora after a Spring Practice.

Links of wonder: Here's an old one-on-one Welsh did early last season with Brent Axe. Seems like a nice dude.

Twitterfeed: Cant' find one. :(

Tweets of wonder: I'm sure he dreams of what tweets would make the Nunesmagician community laugh if he had a twitter.

What does Shafer think of him: "Knows his strengths, knows his weaknesses and is learning to put himself in position to lean on his strengths, whisper his weaknesses but always work on them type of deal." That was what Shafer thought of him going into the 2013 season.

Interesting Nugget O' interest: I thought that in the last year, a rise to fame would yield something more interesting than being a basketball player in high school... alas, this is not the case.

Let's get a look atcha: I love watching big men interceptions in football.
