Overview

Tracy was very productive over the last two seasons at William & Mary, recording more than 20 sacks. A bit of 'tweener, size wise, he will have make the transition to outside linebacker at the next level. He is a heady player who does his homework and consistently makes the right reads and flows to the ball. His non-stop motor makes up for his less-than-elite measurables, but his lack of burst will limit his ability to get to the quarterback in the NFL. Plays a little high and will get blown out of the play too often. Needs to refine hand placement and technique against bigger and more athletic players. Tracy is a coach's dream as far as effort and preparation are concerned, but his physical limitations make a him a late-round or free-agent prospect.

Analysis

Strengths

Tracy shows very good instincts. Picks up new schemes quickly and clearly works hard in the film room, because he understands tendencies and formations. Finds the ball quickly and shows good lateral agility in pursuit. High-effort, overachiever type.

Weaknesses

Small-school DE who lacks ideal height/bulk to play traditional 4-3 end in the NFL. Loses leverage too often. Does not show the strength to stack at the line of scrimmage. Has limited pass rush package and struggles to consistently get after the quarterback. Has only adequate speed.
