Kavell Conner
Round 7, Pick 240
Position: OLB
Class: 5Sr
School: Clemson
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-0.5
WT: 242
40 Time: 4.59
Biography: Two-year starter who led Clemson in tackles since his junior season. Senior totals include 103/7/2 after 125 tackles as a junior.

Positives: Athletic linebacker best in a one-gap system. Breaks down well, very active in his all-around game, flies around the field. Quickly changes direction, plays sideline to sideline, and covers a lot of area on the field. Physical, and works to get involved in the action. Shows ability in pursuit, chasing from the back side. Runs downfield with tight ends or even receivers in coverage.

Negatives: Undersized and engulfed at the point of attack. Must improve his playing balance.

Analysis: Connor is a prospect who significantly improved his game the past two seasons. He has size limitations and would be best as a weak-side linebacker in a one-gap system. He should be a serviceable backup at worst.

Projection: 6th
