BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who totaled 73/9.5/5 as a senior when he also intercepted one pass and broke up three more. Junior totals included 70/10/3.

POSITIVES: "Strong, athletic linebacker who started to pull the pieces together last season. Physical, aggressive, and attacks ball carriers. Collapses from the outside to defend the run, strong at the point, and defeats blocks to get to the action. Chases the play hard, and displays a good burst of closing speed. Plays with balance, rarely off his feet, and nicely redirects to ball carriers. Improved his reads, instincts, and ability in coverage last season."

NEGATIVES: "Inefficient, at times a bit too quick to come up the field on play-action passes, and does not always take proper angles to the action. For the most part, marginal skills in coverage for a smallish linebacker."

ANALYSIS: "Levy possesses the size/speed numbers and physical mentality to play at the next level. He must continue to build upon the progress he showed last season, yet the arrow is pointing north."

PROJECTION: Fifth/Sixth Round
