BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who posted 40 tackles as a senior. Junior-year totals included 69/6/2.
POSITIVES: Athletic chase-and-pursue linebacker with limited size. Plays with a lot of quickness, fluid changing direction, and displays speed to the flanks. Smooth pedaling in reverse, gets depth on pass drops, and covers a lot of area on the field. Shows a nice closing burst to the play.
NEGATIVES: Easily blocked from the action by a single opponent. Does not consistently play under control and pursues the action too aggressively. Marginal awareness in pass coverage.
ANALYSIS: Rumph possesses the measurables to be a weak side linebacker at the next level, yet he leaves scouts thinking he is capable of doing more. He is practice squad material who must take his game to the next level for a career in the NFL.
