Overview

Galippo has been an off and on starter for the Trojans the past three seasons because of injuries and demotions due to the play of younger, more athletic linebackers. A herniated disc kept him out for a year and has limited him at times throughout his career. He is an instinctive middle linebacker who is quick to reach when the ball is snapped and almost always is involved in the tackle on run plays. Despite all this, Galippo is a solid backer whose instincts and production over a five-year period give him late-round value to a team looking for a backup at the position capable of competing on special teams.

Analysis

Strengths

Galippo is an instinctual player and good tackler. He struggles at times fitting on inside run plays but is good in his pass set and reacting to pass plays throughout the field. He is a decent athlete who can cover well in his pass sets.

Weaknesses

Galippo will fall off tackles and can struggle when it comes to inside run plays. He is a good lateral mover but breaking down in space can give him trouble. He has been out-skilled by younger kids in the program throughout his career, and his back has given him trouble. When healthy, he has the talent to contribute on special teams.
