Biography: Finished his senior season with 50 tackles after becoming a full-time starter. Posted 37 tackles as a junior in five starts and 25 tackles as a sophomore.

Positives: "Athletic, pursuit linebacker who makes plays sideline to sideline. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself, and displays good movement skills. Gets depth on drops, can run with tight ends in coverage, and makes plays in all directions of the field."

Negatives: Lacks strength at the point of attack and struggles taking on blocks from opposing receivers. More of a drag down tackler. Does not make a lot of plays on the ball.

Analysis: Gbadyu is an athletic pursuit linebacker who could be a reserve at the next level if he plays well on special teams.

Projection: FA
