BIO: Three-year starter who lead the team in tackles the past two seasons, posting 87/8/4 as a senior after a career-high 129 the prior year. Used at the middle and outside positions.
POSITIVES: Intelligent defender who rarely plays to his size/speed numbers. Quick diagnosing the action, has a good head for the ball and patient. Slides off blocks, does not get caught out of position and wraps up tackling.
NEGATIVES: Lacks both a burst and sustained speed. Cannot quickly change direction, redirect to the play and is marginally effective in pursuit. Slow shedding blocks at the point.
ANALYSIS: Hard-working in all aspects, Sinclair is a productive collegiate defender coming off a disappointing senior campaign. Must improve his abilities in space and become more than a two-down defender.
