Overview

An ultra-productive linebacker who finally made the All-SWAC team as a senior (first team), collecting 111 tackles, 10.5 for loss, 3.5 sacks, three interceptions and three forced fumbles. The four-year starter had 223 tackles (33.5 for loss) coming into the season, so he was no one-year wonder. NFL defensive coordinators who use 3-4 scheme principles may view him as a potential starter at rush linebacker.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Good height and upper-body strength. ... Can bull rush and rip from running back/tight end blocks. ... Nice closing speed, runs downhill to attack ballcarriers. ... Often lines up outside the defensive end in a rushing stance to take advantage of his explosiveness. ... Uses his hands to keep cut blocks off his knees. ... Fights through trash inside to get to the ballcarrier. ... Will hustle down plays. ... Team leader on and off the field. Negatives: Teams will not know whether he's a versatile inside-outside linebacker or a "tweener" until they have him in training camp. ... High and slow in his backpedal, but can stay with tight ends in short areas. ... Does not change direction well laterally in space. ... Needs to improve his open-field tackling, as he bounces and slides off too easily bigger backs.
