Overview

Mohamed is a hard-worker who will maximize his natural tools on the field. Will come into your franchise, understand your defensive system, provide some instant linebacker depth, and contribute on special teams. However, he lacks the power to be a true force in the box against the run and the speed and range to make plays on the outside or mirror explosive space players in man coverage. Probably just not enough physical tools to work with to become an NFL starter, but still a late-round prospect who will bring some impressive instincts and great character to a locker room.


Strengths

Mohamed is an experienced, productive, heady inside linebacker with great intangibles. Is a smart, disciplined player who won't bite on play fakes or take himself out of position too often. Reads his keys and finds the football against the run. Understands zone coverage responsibilities. Aggressive and competitive.

Weaknesses

Doesn't have the explosive burst to make many big plays behind the line of scrimmage or rushing the quarterback. Is tough and feisty but lacks the lower body strength and power to take on blockers in the box. Lack of bulk also results in too many broken tackles. Doesn't have the range to play sideline-to-sideline. Doesn't have the speed to stick with targets in man coverage.

Grade

3.4
