Overview

Lloyd has some limitations to his game and an injury history but could emerge as an effective two-down, between the tackles middle linebacker at the next level. He'll make his money with good instincts, awareness, a nose for the football and the physicality to play downhill and fill in the running game. Probably won't see much action on third down, passing situations or when protecting a big lead. Doesn't have the hips to play man, great range in zone, or the burst to really pressure the quarterback. The son of former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker by the same name, he could off the board in the middle rounds.


Strengths

Lloyd has good size for an inside linebacker. Is comfortable playing in the box and finding the football to stop the run. Likes playing downhill and fills quickly. Has the strength stack up lead blockers and occasionally shed them. Will lay the wood and separate ball carriers from the football.

Weaknesses

Does not possess the speed to play sideline-to-sideline and doesn't have striking short-area closing burst. Lack of speed also prevents him from hunting down the passer when blitzing. Is not a smooth enough athlete to mirror tight ends or backs in man coverage, and doesn't show great range. Suffered a major knee injury in college.

Grade

2.5
