Position: Class:
5Sr
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-1.5, 248
40 Time:
4.94

BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after he led West Virginia in tackles posting 90/7/.5. Also intercepted three passes and broke up six more. Junior totals included 89 tackles.

POSITIVES: Ivy is a solid college linebacker who is not effective covering a large area on the field. His skill stacking against the run could force him on the inside of a 3-4 alignment.

NEGATIVES: Lacks top sideline-to-sideline range, not fast to the flanks or fluid moving in reverse. Does not show great force as a blitzer.

ANALYSIS: Explosive linebacker best in the box or up the field. Diagnoses the action, picks up coverage assignments, and remains disciplined. Shows a good head for the ball in run defense, nicely redirects to ball carriers, and is a good open field tackler.

PROJECTION: FA
