Overview

Cole is a strong linebacker who has to rely on his power to overtake blockers and make plays on the ball, as he is limited athletically in space. He is best suited playing in close and flying to the line of scrimmage from inside the box. He has been productive for the Wolfpack, and has sixth-round value based on his strength.

Analysis

Strengths

Cole is a strong player who is noticeably explosive when throwing his body into linemen. He can make good tackles when playing in the box and when the play comes to him. He is an obviously competitive player who seems to enjoy taking on pulling lineman and fitting up with them before using his arm strength to shed. He can maul a tight end on the line but has difficulty running with them.

Weaknesses

Cole has been a productive tackler for North Carolina State, but most of that production comes on plays that come directly to him. He has difficulty turning his hips and running in space, and would be a liability in coverage at the next level.
