PLAYERS
Josh Hull
Round 7, Pick 254
Position: ILB
Class: 5Sr
School: Penn State
Conference: Big Ten
HT: 6-2.5
WT: 237
40 Time: 4.93
Biography: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after leading Penn State in tackles by posting career numbers of 116/8.5/2. Also intercepted and broke up a pair of passes. Junior totals included 75/I.5/1.

Positives: Tough, blue-collar linebacker with a terrific head for the game. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself and slides off blocks lateral laterally. Instinctive, quickly diagnoses the action and fires up the field in run defense. Stacks well against the run, holds his ground against blocks and wraps up tackling. Wraps up ball-carriers at the point of attack.

Negatives: Possesses a marginal burst of speed, not quick changing direction and struggles in coverage. Beaten downfield by tight ends and does not display good range on the field.

Analysis: Hull did a terrific job the past few seasons after being forced into the starting lineup. Lacks the great upside but is a solid run defender who can back up on the inside of a 3-4 alignment or be used at middle linebacker as well is on special teams.

Projection: 6th
