BIO: Two-year starter who finished second on the team in tackles last year, posting 66/12/3 after a career-high 135 tackles as a junior.
POSITIVES: Tough, hard-working linebacker with a good feel for the game. Quickly reads or diagnoses the action, takes good angles to the play and quick filling gaps up the field. Efficient, works to get off blocks and tenacious in pursuit of the ballcarrier.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack. Has difficulty in pass coverage or staying with running backs down the field. Not fast to the flanks.
ANALYSIS: A marginal athlete who overcomes his physical skills by making plays with his head, Lehnortt has the ability to backup at several linebacker positions at the next level.
