BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Senior totals included 88/9/2.5 after 105/11/2
as a junior, when he also intercepted four passes.
POSITIVES: Leonard is a hard-working defender who stacks well in run defense. He has athletic limitations, yet he possesses the attitude
and aggressiveness to back up at several linebacker positions.
NEGATIVES: Lacks a quick change of direction, does not get depth on drops, and is very limited in pass coverage. Possesses below-average
ANALYSIS: Fierce, aggressive linebacker best in a straight line. Forceful up the field, strong at the point and wraps up tackling, bringing
ball carriers down on initial contact. Works his hands to get off blocks, and jolts lineman with good punch. Physical, chases
hard to get involved in the action, and is a solid run defender.
