BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter who posted 38/3/2.5 as a senior after 43/4.5/2 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Covington has the size and speed to be used at an outside linebacker position, but he must raise his level of play and start
to be more productive on the field for any chance of sticking at the next level.
NEGATIVES: Lined up in a three-point stance much of the time at Maryland, and really struggles getting off blocks. Not forceful on the
blitz when stood up over tackle. Has been branded by NFL scouts as not having the best of attitudes.
ANALYSIS: Athletic defensive prospect with possibilities at a number of positions. Remains disciplined with assignments and moves well
laterally, making plays down the line. Bends his knees, quickly changes direction, or immediately alters his angle of attack.
Gets depth on pass drops.
