 Troy Bennett Grade: 3.23
 Position: ILB
 Class: Sr
 School: Temple
 Conference: Big East
 Ht., Wt.: 6-1, 235
 40 Time: 4.83

BIO: Three-year starter used on the strong side, weak side, and middle linebacker positions. Finished second on the team in tackles with 95 as a senior after posting 84 stops the prior year.

POSITIVES: Tough, run defending linebacker best in the box. Quickly keys and diagnoses the action, fills the right gaps and takes good angles to the play. Efficient, plays with balance and rarely off his feet. Works hard and stays with assignments. Can play over tight end and instinctive in pass coverage.

NEGATIVES: Undersized and slow to shed. Lacks the top sideline-to-sideline range or speed trying to cut off the corners.

ANALYSIS: A reliable college defender, Bennett consistently puts himself in a position to make plays on the ballcarrier. Has possibilities as a backup in a 34 defense where he can freely roam to the action.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
