Grading System
Lester Towns | ILB | Washington | Pac-10
Selected by Carolina Panthers in round 7, pick 15 (#221 overall)
Ht Wt 40 BP SS LS VJ BJ Grade
6'1½" 249 4.98 - - - - - 5.32
A great specimen with thick thighs, a muscular upper body, long arms and huge hands. Played inside in a 3-4. Suffered a serious foot injury in '98 which has reduced his effectiveness. Not quick in his initial reaction, but he's a powerful player who takes on blocks aggressively and has good hand usage to escape. Gets outpositioned at times and is inconsistent working to the ball. Needs to protect his legs better. Adequate in his change-of-direction. Lacks a strong closing burst. Forceful tackler. Has some edge rush ability. Physical in coverage.
