Position:OLB Class: Sr School:
Big Ten Ht., Wt.: 6'2, 238 40 Time: 4.89 Grade: 3.04
BIO: Three-year starter that totaled 58 tackles as a senior after 57/3/4 the prior year. Had a career best 67 tackles as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Tough, heady defender with just marginal athleticism. Quick diagnosing the action, efficient and always working to make positive plays. Disciplined and stays with assignments. Keeps the action in front of him and rarely out of position.
NEGATIVES: Lacks speed to the flanks, does not get depth on pass drops, nor does he look comfortable in space. Taken off the field on obvious passing downs.
ANALYSIS: Steen is a two-down defender who overcomes his lack of speed with a knowledge of the game. The combination of tenacity and intelligence could help him stick on a roster should he plays well on special teams.
