When healthy, Michael Mauti provided Penn State with great leadership and playmaking ability. His excellent feel for the game and instincts helped him quickly get into proper position. He also possessed the speed and quickness to close on the ball-carrier.
Mauti is a player who always gives 100 percent effort, which has a tendency to rub off on his teammates.
The issue is that he has suffered three major knee injuries throughout his college career.
In 2009, he suffered a torn ACL in his right knee.
In 2011, he sustained a torn ACL in his left knee, and recently, he wasn't able to finish his senior year because of another knee problem.
Penn State or Mauti didn't release the details of the most recent knee injury.
It's highly unlikely a team will use a draft pick on someone with such an extensive injury history. However, there will be plenty of teams willing to give him a camp invite.
