BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who posted 54 tackles as a senior. Junior-year totals included 48/8/2.
POSITIVES: Strong run-defending two-down linebacker. Scrapes well laterally, remains disciplined with assignments, and always around the ball.
NEGATIVES: Inefficient and takes improper angles to the play. Not forceful on the blitz and not overly physical in his game.
ANALYSIS: Dias has potential as a backup inside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment if he decides to play at a consistently high level.
PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
