Brad Jefferson
Position: OLB
Class:  4Sr
School: Georgia Tech
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-1
WT: 243
40 Time: 4.81
Biography: Two-year starter who posted 78/7.5/4 as a senior after he led the team with 95 tackles as a junior.

Positives: "Small but hardworking linebacker who flies around the football. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself, and scrapes well laterally. Sells out on the blitz, sacrifices his body to make the play, and gives effort. Explosive and wraps up when tackling."

Negatives: Lacks great pursuit speed and cannot cut off the flanks from ball carriers. Struggles in coverage and can be overmatched by tight ends. Tends to make his first move up the field.

Analysis: "Jefferson is a hardworking, two-down defender who is best stuffing the run. His effort and hustle could help him find a spot on a two deep at inside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment."

Projection: FA
