Dallas Cowboys select
Inside Linebacker | Texas Christian | SR
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 234 | 40-Time: 4.60
Very athletic --- Excellent speed --- Quick and agile --- Explosive with a burst --- Outstanding sideline-to-sideline range --- Does a fantastic job in pursuit --- Fluid hips and excels in coverage --- Active and extremely aggressive --- Powerful hitter --- Can work through traffic and avoid blocks --- Offers some versatility --- Has a lot of special teams potential.
Undersized and lacks the ideal bulk that you look for --- Needs to get stronger --- Struggles to shed blockers --- Average instincts --- Misses the occasional tackle --- Does not have great hands --- Will have to do a better job of protecting his legs --- May not be a fit for every scheme.
Technically just a one-year starter for the Horned Frogs but played extensively earlier in his career --- Was named 1st Team All-Mountain West as a senior --- Blocked four punts during his college career, including three in 2007 which tied him for the nations lead --- Played inside linebacker in college but could also project outside (WILL) at the next level --- Enjoyed a standout senior campaign and really shot up draft boards --- Best fit will come in a defensive scheme that keeps him clean, allowing him to roam free and flow to the ball --- Underpublicized but super talented with a terrific blend of production and physical tools.
