Overview

Homan is an undersized linebacker with good speed that could potentially develop into a starter on the weak side. He runs very well and shows the ability to chase running backs down from behind. He is a smooth athlete that makes plays in space and flashes the ability to mirror tight ends and running backs in man coverage. However, he lacks the strength and shedding ability to be a run stopper at the next level and can be a non-factor on running plays directed at him. Homan has the skills to be a quality Tampa 2 linebacker and will likely be a middle round pick.

Analysis

Strengths

Homan has the speed to make tackles from sideline-to-sideline. Reads quickly, takes proper angles and fills fast in run support. Fluid athlete that can stick with backs and tight ends in man coverage and can jump underneath routes in zone. Breaks down ball carriers in space and is a sound wrap-up tackler.

Weaknesses

Does not have the strength to be stout against the run and struggles to shed blocks. Lacks a mean streak and will not have an impact between the tackles. Does not always anticipate routes and sloppy footwork limits his effectiveness in coverage at times. Balls skills are less than ideal. Missed significant time due to injuries.
