BIO: Led the team in tackles as a senior registering 97/8.5/2. Missed two games with a dislocated shoulder as a junior but still posted 66/3/0 after originally leading the team in tackles as a sophomore with 103. Cousin of Carolina Panther linebacker Lester Towns.
POSITIVES: Resilient run defending linebacker with a good degree of athleticism. Plays with leverage, fires up the field and stacks well against the run. Scrapes to the outside, snuffs out the ball carrier and wraps up tackling. Improved his instincts as a senior.
NEGATIVES: Slow adjusting off the initial block and does not redirect to the action well. Better up the field in a straight line and lacks the quick change of direction.
ANALYSIS: Though he flashes playing ability and explosion at times, Towns never took his game to the next level. Lacks the top size to play in the middle and must improve his play in pass coverage to have a shot on the weak-side.
