 J.J. Horne Grade: 3.26
 Position: OLB
 Class: Sr
 School: Pittsburgh
 Conference: Big East
 Ht., Wt.: 6-2, 230
 40 Time: 4.62

BIO: Posted 52/4.5/1 as a senior when he became a full-time starter. Also intercepted two passes and broke up four more.

POSITIVES: Converted defensive back starting to hit his stride at linebacker. Alert, showed improved instincts last season and was constantly around the action. Fast to the flanks and covers a lot of area in pass coverage. Fires up the field in run defense and wraps up tackling.

NEGATIVES: Lacks playing strength and can be blocked from the action by opposing tight ends or fullbacks.

ANALYSIS: A prospect with a good degree of upside potential, Horne is a solid developmental player for the weak side linebacker position.

PROJECTION: Late Seventh Round
