Mississippi State Bulldogs 2013 Football Impact Players: No. 12-Kaleb Eulls

New, 1 comment

A 26-game starter (has started every game of his career), Kaleb Eulls seems primed to make a jump into the upper level of defensive linemen in the SEC. Should he accomplish that goal, the Bulldogs may have the one of the most troublesome defensive lines in the SEC.

Kaleb Eulls is no stranger to the spotlight. While in high school, he made one of the biggest tackles of his lifetime when he brought down a 14-year old girl armed with a gun on the school bus. If he has his way in 2013, he will be bringing down the quarterbacks of the SEC a time or two as well.

So far in his career, Eulls has racked up 58 tackles, four tackles for a loss and one sack. He has also shown versatility on the line, playing both defensive end and defensive tackle.

After his freshman season, Eulls, the only freshman to start every game on the defensive line in the SEC, picked up All-SEC Freshman honors. If he can pick up All-SEC honors in 2013, the Bulldogs will have had an outstanding season.

As the season starts, Eulls and P.J. Jones will man the inside of the defensive line while Denico Autry and Preston Smith play on the edge. If Jones and Eulls can create holes, players such as Benardrick McKinney will have an outstanding season.
