Pitt’s Rashad Weaver, Kirk Christodoulou Named All-Americans by PFF

Pitt defensive end Rashad Weaver and punter Kirk Christodoulou have been named All-Americans by Pro Football Focus, the scouting-based publication announced on Monday.

Weaver was named a first-team selection at defensive end while Christodoulou is the site’s second-team punter.

Weaver, a redshirt senior from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, finished sixth in the nation with 14.5 tackles for loss this season. He had 35 total tackles, meaning nearly half of his stops were in opponent backfields, and also earned 7.5 quarterback sacks. He also forced three fumbles, recovered one and batted down two passes.

Combined with fellow defensive end Patrick Jones II, Weaver helped lead the Pitt defense that led the entire NCAA with 46 sacks on the season, the only Power Five team to average more than four sacks per game.

Weaver returned to Pitt for the 2020 season after missing all of 2019 with a knee injury. He has already declared his intention to enter the 2021 NFL Draft, choosing not to participate in the team’s final game of the season at Georgia Tech after it was re-scheduled.

Weaver has been projected to be a potential first-round draft pick. He and Jones are also semifinalists for the Bednarik Award as the best defensive player in the country.

Christodoulou had his best season with Pitt as a redshirt junior, averaging a career-high 44.7 yards per punt, while kicking 53 times to finish with 2,368 punting yards, the fifth-most in the country this season.
