40 Time:

BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who posted 64 tackles as a senior after 61 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Sapp is a chase-and-run-down linebacker with ability in a one-gap system as well as on special teams.

NEGATIVES: Undersized and built more like a safety. Lacks top speed for a smallish linebacker.

ANALYSIS: Small but quick linebacker who effectively flows to the action. Breaks down well, playing with good knee bend, quickly changes direction, and slips through blocks to get to ball carriers. Does not bite on play fakes, can run with tight ends in coverage, and shows skill in pursuit. Used during third-down passing situations.
