BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter at linebacker after seeing action with the first-team as a fullback during his freshman campaign. Has led the team in tackles the past three seasons, winning All-Conference honors each year.
POSITIVES: Hard-charging, productive linebacker who stands out in pursuit. Explodes up the field, quickly changes direction and loses no momentum when he must immediately alter his angle of attack. Plays with good balance and covers a great amount of area on the field.
NEGATIVES: At times too quick up the field, over-pursues the play and gets caught out of position. Undersized and slow shedding blocks once engaged at the point.
ANALYSIS: An explosive linebacker with limited size, Nkang offers possibilities in a one-gap system or at inside linebacker in a scheme which allows him to freely flow to the action. May also be given looks at strong safety and should be a demon on special teams.
