Big Ten Ht., Wt.: 6'1, 245 40 Time: 4.82 Grade: 3.26
BIO: Full-time starter the past two seasons seeing action at both inside and outside linebacker. Finished the ’03 season with 56/ 7/1. Junior numbers were 63/7/1.
POSITIVES: Tough, versatile linebacker best in the box. Quickly diagnoses the action, knifes up the field and forceful making in run defense. Breaks down well, strong at the point of attack and wraps the ball handler. Goes sideline-to-sideline, displays an adequate change of direction and gets depth on drops in zone coverage.
NEGATIVES: Lacks overall instincts in pass defense and skill in man coverage. Does not always play under great control and takes himself from the action at times.
ANALYSIS: Diggs, has a nose for the ball in run defense and makes plays in a limited area. Though used mostly on the outside as a senior, his best pro position would be inside and he should be a demon on special teams.
