Overview

Campbell was a very productive, three-year starter for the Gophers. He is a tough, hardnosed linebacker with good instincts and is at his best when attacking the line of scrimmage as a run stopper. He has decent range inside-out to the ball but doesn't have great speed or quickness when in pursuit. He is excellent at maintaining leverage with proper angles and body positioning. He understands run fits and rarely is out of position between the tackles. He is a solid tackler as he keeps good balance and wraps up well on contact. He lacks great lateral quickness and agility in coverage and may be a liability in this phase of the game at the next level. Campbell is a good college football player who doesn't appear to have the raw talent to be effective at the next level and will likely contribute as a backup.

Analysis

Strengths

Campbell is thickly built with ideal height. Heady player who reads fast and recognizes play action. Tough competitor who slips blocks and attacks ball carriers in the hole. Drops smoothly in pass coverage, anticipates underneath routes, and gets his hands up to knock balls down. High motor kid who fights to the whistle.

Weaknesses

Does not have the speed to be a sideline-to-sideline player. Stands up too tall at times and can be driven back. Has average athletic ability, which limits his ability to stick with backs and tight ends in man coverage. A bit stiff in the hips and struggles to make tackles in space.
