BIO: Two-year starter who began his college career at Air Force. Senior totals included 82/7/2 after career-best totals of 84/10.5/3.5 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Hard-working two-down defender who is best against the run. Aggressive, effectively diagnoses the action and takes good angles to the play. Breaks down and defeats blocks on his way to the play. Gets depth in zone coverage and immediately picks up assignments.
NEGATIVES: Struggles moving laterally, lacks sideline-to-sideline range and speed in pursuit. Slow reacting when the ball's in the air and is better playing downhill.
ANALYSIS: A competitive linebacker, Schlegel best fits on the inside of a 34 defense where his area responsibilities will be limited.
