BIO: Former fullback who moved to middle linebacker as a senior, registering 52/7.5/3.
POSITIVES: Aggressive prospect who works hard in all aspects. Fluid moving laterally, gets depth on drops and covers a lot of area. Plays with great quickness, explosion and toughness. Immediately picks up cover assignments and stays with tight ends or backs down the field. Has a burst of speed and plays with good fundamentals.
NEGATIVES: Hesitant, inefficient and does not always take proper angles to the action. Must learn to protect himself. Plays out of control, over-pursuing the action. Has a history of concussions, which is a concern.
ANALYSIS: A blue-collar prospect, Pannozzo has always done the extras to become a better football player. His toughness and football intelligence could help him find a spot as a backup linebacker in a 34 system.
