Grade: 3.29

BIO: Three-year starter who totaled 109 tackles, eight tackles for loss, two sacks, while breaking up and intercepting two passes each as a senior. Led the conference in tackles with 131 as a junior, garnering Honorable Mention All Big 12 honors after 80 tackles the prior season.

POSITIVES: Intelligent, heady linebacker productive on the college level. Quick to read or anticipate the action, takes good angles to the play and very efficient. Throws his body around the field and relentless in pursuit of the ball carrier. Scrapes well laterally and constantly around the ball.

NEGATIVES: Overall game lacks explosion, speed and cannot quickly alter his angle of attack. Slow to shed and does not get depth on his drops.

ANALYSIS: Lacks the size for the middle and speed for the weak side, both of which will cause him problems at the next level.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
