2020 NFL Combine: Inside Linebacker Prospects, Invites, What To Watch For

Why He’s Here On The List: Like him as an NFL prospect, or he’ll tackle you – that’s not actually a joke. A linebacker’s linebacker, he got in on every stop over the last two seasons with a whopping 191 solo stops. Overall. he came up with 155 tackles as a junior and 181 last year. There’s a lot not to like about his NFL tools … and then he’ll come up with the tackle.

What The NFL Types Want To See: Are there any NFL tools whatsoever? No one will expect him to fly around or put up any decent times, but as long as he’s not brutally slow and painful, someone will want to take a chance early on Day Three.

Bottom Line: Who wants to make a bet that he’ll end up leading every outside linebacker on this list in tackles at least one year? He’s not going to run all that well, and there’s so much missing to his game, but he’s a football player. Don’t compare him to other try-hard linebacker types – he’s an inside linebacker who’ll eat everything up and be a Day One leader.
