Ryan D'Imperio
Round 7, Pick 237
Position: ILB
Class: 4Sr
School: Rutgers
Conference: Big East
HT: 6-1
WT: 244
40 Time: 4.81
Biography: Full-time starter the past two seasons and an All-Conference selection as a junior. Senior totals included 76/8/1 after 93/12.5/5.5 as a junior.

Positives: Hard-working run defending linebacker best in a straight line. Aggressive, attacks ball handlers and forceful up the field. Effectively diagnoses the action and works hard to get involved.

Negatives: Lacks a fluid change of direction and shows marginal skills in pursuit. Possesses just a short burst of speed. Ineffective in coverage.

Analysis: D'Imperio is a two-down run defending linebacker best playing downhill. He possesses marginal upside for the next level but has a special teams mentality and can back up on the inside in a 3-4 alignment.

Projection: FA
