Arkansas State senior linebacker Nathan Herrold will have to perform well this season for the Red Wolves' defense to be successful.
Arkansas State lost its top two tacklers from last season to the NFL in defensive back Kelcie McCray and linebacker Demario Davis. McCray signed with the Miami Dolphins as a unsigned free-agent and Davis was selected 77th overall by the New York Jets. Defensive end Brandon Joiner, the Sun Belt defensive player of the year N is gone after leading the team with 13 sacks and 19 tackles for loss last season.
Herrold (6-foot-3, 235 pounds) was the team's third-leading tackler in 2011 with 66 total tackles, 3.5 for a loss, and one sack. For 2012, he is projected as a Second-Team All-Sun Belt selection by Phil Steele. He must play like an All-Sun Belt performer in 2012 to help fill the voids left by NicCray, Davis and Joiner.
