Pick Analysis: David is one of the premier linebacker prospects in this year's senior class. The Fort Scott Community College transfer is undersized but able to overcome that through his instincts and speed. He had enormous tackle production throughout his two years at Nebraska, posting more than 260 tackles in his short time there. Instincts are the key to his game, as he always seems to be in the middle of action whether rushing the passer or covering tight ends. David will need to stay off blocks at the next level and either gain strength to shed linemen or continue to play instinctually to stay free. His athletic ability allows him to play loose and fly around, and he should go in the late first round to a team that loves undersized, athletic linebackers.
