BIO: Second on the team in tackles last season with 101/5.5 after leading the team as a junior with 121, also accumulating 11.5 tackles for loss and three interceptions.
POSITIVES: Athletic, tough defender that stacks well against the run. Displays good range, gets depth on pass drops and quick filling the gaps. Breaks down well, bends his knees and rarely off his feet. Strong at the point and always working to get involved in the action. Good special-teams player.
NEGATIVES: Not efficient, commits to a move and gets caught out of position. Too quick to come up the field, does not flow to the play and takes incorrect angles. Very hesitant in pass coverage and not overly instinctive.
ANALYSIS: Koutouvides is best in the box stuffing the run. Must learn the nuances of his position and become a complete linebacker to meet his potential at the next level.
