BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference selection last season after leading Louisville in tackles posting 128/8/2. Started four games as a sophomore and totaled 45 tackles.

POSITIVES: Explosive yet undersized linebacker who plays with an aggressive style. Efficient, takes good angles to the action and plays heads-up football in run defense. Fast filling gaps upfield, weaves through the traffic and wraps up tackling. Nicely redirects to the action and plays with a good degree of quickness.

NEGATIVES: Bites on play-action passes, makes his first move up the field and struggles in coverage. Small and easily blocked from the action.

ANALYSIS: Myles comes off a terrific junior campaign and has possibilities at the next level as a one gap linebacker or in a system which allows him to freely flow to the action. He must improve his skills in coverage for any chance to earn a spot on the active roster.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
