BIO: Three-year starter used at both linebacker and defensive end. Totaled 58/4/1 as a senior. Posted career numbers of 71/4/8 the previous season. Has one interception to his credit.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized linebacker who hustles to get involved in the action. Strong at the point of attack, packs a wallop and fights to get involved in the play. Takes good angles to the action, defeats blocks and makes plays against the ballcarrier. Disciplined in pass coverage.
NEGATIVES: Not a quick or sudden defender and lacks lateral range. Cannot immediately alter his angle of attack. Marginal skills in coverage.
ANALYSIS: Possessing a solid linebacker build, Wake is a good athlete who gives top effort. Potentially a rush linebacker who stands up over tackle.
