 Anthony Cannon Grade: 2.87
 Position: ILB
 Class: Sr
 School: Tulane
 Conference: Conference USA
 Ht., Wt.: 5-11, 220
 40 Time: 4.69
  Selected by: Detroit Lions
  Round 7, pick 39 (247 overall)

BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior and junior, leading the team in tackles. Numbers last season included 114/12.5/2.5 after a junior campaign of 107 tackles.

POSITIVES: Tough linebacker with ability in a 34 defense. Quick up the field, fast to the sidelines and displays solid range. Effective in pursuit and flies around the football. Gets depth on drops, disciplined in coverage and displays a good head for the ball.

NEGATIVES: Not strong at the point, has difficulty bringing opponents down on initial contact and can be swallowed up by blocks. Does not play under control and over-pursues the action.

ANALYSIS: A high-motor defender, Cannon should be a special-teams ace at the next level and a back-up in a system which allows linebackers to freely flow to the action.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
