2017 LB Rankings

April 24, 2017

Cunningham

  1. Zach Cunningham Vanderbilt 6’3 ½ 234 Jr. Redshirted one year. He ran a 4.67 40, ‘35 vertical, 10’5 broad, 4.29 shuttle and 7.03 3 cone. He played very well as a true freshman in the SEC, something that is tough to do (67 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 6.5 TFL, 1 FF). In 2015 he improved and became a dominant player (103 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 16.5 TFL, 4 FF) and had a similarly dominant season in 2016 (125 tackles, 16.5 TFL, 2 FF). He is tall, skinny, has long arms (‘34 ⅜) and above average athleticism. Combined it’s an impressive package and shows with his elite production (2 seasons of +100 tackles despite leaving after his junior year). His 7 FF in 3 years is elite as is his 33 TFL the past two years. He isn’t the biggest hitter but he does come with force when he tackles and shows an aggressiveness that I like. All of his tackling occurs with his arms and a twisting motion, with almost no tape of him being shoulderpads first which is something I can’t remember ever seeing. It works well in college and is safe as it assures he’s always wrapping up the ballcarrier but worries me a little at the next level, especially at his 234 lbs. He might need to gain strength to continue tackling that way in the NFL with the athletes being so much bigger and stronger. He has true versatility as he could play any spot in a 4-3, part of me thinks MLB is his best spot since he’s a tackling machine but his body screams SLB, and he could play ILB in a 3-4 if a team preferred. He’s one of the few sideline to sideline linebackers in this very weak LB class and it’s refreshing to see as he can really race to the corner on outside runs and bubble screens. Zach has everything I want in a linebacker as he’s tall, long, athletic, flexible (he has great bend and agility), is good in coverage, was precocious as a true freshman, has been consistent in his production, has no off the field incidents, is a good leader and has a great motor. With Reuben Foster having so many red flags on and off the field, Zach is clearly my favorite linebacker in this draft and seems to be a bit of a sleeper despite being productive three straight seasons in the SEC. Top 15 as my #1 LB and a future Pro Bowler 4/21/17.
  2. Reuben Foster Alabama 6’0 229 Sr. He didn’t work out at the Combine due to being sent home early since he got into it with a hospital worker? It was one of the more bizarre situations I’ve seen in quite awhile. He also later admitted to testing positive for a diluted sample. He barely played in 2013-2014 with 35 tackles and 1 sack COMBINED. In 2015 he had a big year (73 tackles, 1 sack, 9 PBUs, 8 TFL) and followed it up with a great year in 2016 (115 tackles, 5 sacks, 13 TFL). He’s one of the hardest hitters in this draft and is the classic inside linebacker in the Bama system ala Rolando McClain, Reggie Ragland. He dropped from 240 as a junior to 228 as a senior and gained some speed. He’s a downhill missile who has good instincts and loves to shoot holes for TFL. His 21 TFL the past 2 years shows his success in that role and a team that takes him early should utilize him that way as he isn’t nearly as effective when going laterally or backpedaling. He was an elite special teamer for them and could be a star on a unit if a team is willing to risk him injury wise. His closing burst is arguably the best in this draft as some of his tape is just surreal, he moves so fast when going downhill. His highlight reel is impressive but he does have some red flags. In 4 years, the last two with 15 games a year in it, he had 0 career INTs and 0 career FF. It’s shocking to me that he has 0 forced fumbles with his big hits but it’s the case. His tape is inconsistent too as he has a lot of wow plays but had numerous stretches of being nearly invisible too. Add in his anger issues, failed drug test, confrontation with a hospital worker at the Combine, worries that his childhood friends will bring him down and questionable intelligence and you have a lot of red flags. As a run stopper he’s a Top 10 talent since there are few guys with his instincts, burst, big hits and sure tackling. When he’s not going downhill though he’s very mediocre and combined with his character red flags I can see why some teams don’t even have a 1st round grade on him. A team that takes him will have to let him be aggressive, let him attack and not make him read and react or, basically, think too much. If he goes to that kind of team he could be DROY and a Pro Bowler early in his career. Question marks about his hometown friends and his overall style of play make him eerily similar to Rolando McClain though and that worries me so I have to downgrade him for those concerns as well as his limited impact in coverage. Late 1st as my #2 LB 4/20/17.
  3. Raekwon McMillan Ohio State 6’1 ⅞ 240 Jr. He ran a 4.61 40, ‘33 vertical, 10’1 broad, 4.39 shuttle and 7.15 3 cone. He was a blue chip prospect out of HS who didn’t disappoint as he played well as a true freshman in 2014 which is very impressive (54 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 6.5 TFL, 1 INT) and then had back to back great seasons in 2015 (119 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 4 TFL) and 2016 (102 tackles, 2 sacks, 7 TFL, 2 FF). Despite being 240 lbs he moves like a DB as he has great speed and really good agility and bend. He’s a three down linebacker that will excel in pass coverage. He only had 1 INT in 3 seasons but had 8 PBUs the past two seasons combined and just looks very fluid in pass coverage so he might be good in coverage but not a playmaker. He has scheme diversity as he fits best as a 4-3 SLB but could play any of the three spots in a 4-3 and also has the size to play ILB in a 3-4. He isn’t a great tackler and needs to improve his consistency in that area. He’s very physical at the POA and takes on fullbacks with pleasure. He has average instincts. I like Raekwon as he has no major flaws in his game and is good at everything. He isn’t great at anything though so he projects as an above average starting linebacker with scheme diversity who likely will never be a Pro Bowler as he lacks instincts and playmaking skills in coverage. He’ll be a good player for someone but won’t be a star. Early 2nd round as my #3 LB 4/21/17.
  4. Jordan Evans Oklahoma 6’2 ⅞ 232 Sr. He wasn’t invited to the Combine but at his Pro Day he ran a 4.51 40, ‘38 ½ vertical, 9’11 broad, 4.18 shuttle and 7.01 3 cone most of which was very good to elite (40 was elite). In 2013 he barely played (12 tackles) but had a big year in 2014 (93 tackles, 6.5 TFL, 1 INT, 2 FF), another good one in 2015 (83 tackles, 1 sack, 5 TFL, 1 FF) and his best all around year in 2016 (98 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 10 TFL, 4 INT, 1 FF). His 274 tackles, 21.5 TFL, 4 FF and 5 INT the past three years shows the all around game Evans possesses as he’s a factor in all aspects. He has very good hands and shows playmaking skills when given the opportunity. He played RB in HS and it shows as he is very comfortable returning picks to the house (3 career defensive TDs). He shows the ability to recognize routes and his 4 INT last year don’t appear to be a fluke. Evans has some really good film as he can stack and shed and looks strong enough to handle runs directly at him, shows very good speed and can track runs away from him and is a playmaker in coverage. MLB in a 4-3 looks like his best fit but WLB and SLB are possibilities. Some teams might see his 6’3 frame and really be intrigued with him at SLB. He wasn’t invited to the Combine and doesn’t seem to be getting a ton of chatter so he seems to be a sleeper. Not sure why as his pro day measurements were good to elite and his production was very good the past three years and varied as he filled the stat sheet up across the board. He’s easily one of the best linebackers in this draft against the pass as he has great instincts and hands so he should be a playmaker in that area. He’s a complete linebacker who has great tape, measurements and production. What’s not to like? Early 2nd round as my #4 LB who is a sleeper 4/21/17.
  5. Jarrad Davis Florida 6’1 238 Sr. He didn’t work out at the Combine. In 2013-2014 he was a bit player (23-24 tackles, 1-2 TFL each year) and then exploded in 2015 (98 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 11 TFL, 1 INT, 1 FF) and regressed in 2016 (60 tackles, 2 sacks, 6 TFL) which was partially because of injury (missed 4 games with an ankle injury). Considered the leader of that defense. He’s a strong, powerful MLB type with big hits who can take down big backs. He forced a fumble with a big hit vs. Derrick Henry in 2015 and threw him to the ground on another sequence that shows the kind of rare power he has. He isn’t anything special in coverage, 0 career INTs, yet he has decent agility and speed so he could play well in a zone or covering backs out in the flat. There is a chance he is a 2 down linebacker though. He has great instincts and really reads his keys well. He doesn’t have great athleticism but it sometimes seems like he was shot out of a cannon since he takes so few missteps and diagnoses plays so quickly. He’ll be very good against the run. He has some versatility as he has the size to play 3-4 ILB and could play a little 4-3 SLB but 4-3 MLB likely is his best spot. Davis is an easy guy to grade as he’s a low upside, high polish kid who at worst will be a very good 2 down linebacker but has enough athleticism that he likely will stay on the field as a 3 down guy. He doesn’t have great athleticism and isn’t anything special in coverage so his upside is limited but he’s a big hitter, has great instincts, is physical and is a high character guy. Mid 2nd round as my #5 LB 4/20/17.
  6. Marquel Lee Wake Forest 6’3 ¼ 240 Sr. He didn’t run but had a ‘31 vertical and 9’10 broad. In 2013 he barely played (14 tackles) but then had two great seasons in 2014 (101 tackles, 4 sacks, 12 TFL, 1 FF) and 2016 (105 tackles, 7.5 sacks, 20 TFL, 3 FF), with a solid but down year in 2015 sandwiched in (71 tackles, 3 sacks, 10 TFL). His 20 TFL last year had him in the Top 10 nationally. He’s a tall, long player with good length and agility for his size. He could easily add a little weight and be a perfect 3-4 ILB or stay where he is and be a good fit as a 4-3 SLB or MLB. He was the leader of their D last year and is clearly well liked by his teammates. He doesn’t have great speed but isn’t slow and has a natural bend and agility to him which makes him play more athletically than his measurables. He is very good at keeping OL off him and stacking and shedding due to his length. He misses more tackles than I would prefer and is one of the two biggest negatives of him, him being a mediocre athlete is the other. His tape is good but not great. He doesn’t wow you with big hits, amazing sideline to sideline speed or big plays in coverage. He has a great frame, was productive three seasons in a major 5 conference and has the instincts and athleticism to play at the next level. He likely will be an average to above average starter but doesn’t have an incredibly high ceiling due to his mediocre athleticism. Mid 2nd round as my #6 LB 4/21/17.
  7. Blair Brown Ohio 5’11 ½ 238 Sr. Redshirted one year. Five years out of HS so he’s an older prospect. He ran a 4.65 40, ‘37 vertical, 10’4 broad, 4.18 shuttle and 6.92 3 cone. He barely played in 2013 (17 tackles, 1 TFL), was good in 2014 (55 tackles, 1 sack, 4 TFL, 1 FF) and 2015 (65 tackles, 4.5 TFL) and then had a great year in 2016 (128 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 15 TFL, 1 FF). He’s a short, thick guy that maybe could play a little Dexter Coakley as a WLB in a 4-3 but probably fits best as a MLB in a 4-3. He’s incredibly physical and is just a load at the POA. It makes me again think MLB fits best for him. He’s an explosive athlete that tackles through people and has some really good film. He has stickum on his hands and is one of the best tacklers in the draft in terms of not letting go once he gets his hands on a player. He’s about as sure of a tackler as you will find. He has great instincts and gets to a spot often before the ball or runners does, knowing where a play is headed. His two main issues are his height and the fact that he has 0 INTs and 2 PBUs in 3 years of being a full time starter so he’s non-existent in coverage. I love his tape and think he’s a huge sleeper. Yes he’s short and is a little tight, due to how thick he is, but he has very good athleticism, is one of the best tacklers in this draft, has great instincts and was productive. If he was coming from Alabama he’d be well known. Early 3rd round as my #7 LB 4/21/17.
  8. Ryan Anderson Alabama 6’2 253 Sr. Redshirted one year. Five years out of HS so he’s an older prospect. He ran a 4.78 40 but didn’t do other drills. He was a bit player in 2013-2014 with 30 tackles and 4.5 sacks COMBINED yet came into his own in 2015 (37 tackles, 6 sacks, 2 FF) and then had a great 2016 (61 tackles, 9 sacks, 19 TFL, 4 FF). With ‘31 ½ arms and a tightly built body he doesn’t project as a pass rusher but seems like a good fit to move inside. The problem is his best attributes were as a pass rusher and with 15 sacks and 6 FF the past two years there is no denying his production. He’s a little like Carl Bradford of Arizona State a few years back as the talent is there but he’s a tweener and the bust rate on those types are high (Bradford was a bust himself). His best fit likely will be as a 3-4 ILB on a team that likes to blitz their ILBs some as he has a noticeable burst and is very good at stacking and shedding at the POA. He also would fit as a SLB in a 4-3 in a scheme that didn’t ask much coverage of that position. Anderson is a guy worth taking a shot on as the film was very good, his very good skills in run support translate well and he has impressive athleticism but his bust rate is high whether you leave him at pass rusher or move him to a new position that fits his body type better. 3rd round as my #8 LB who is a talented tweener who could be an above average 4-3 SLB or 3-4 ILB or be a bust 4/20/17.
  9. Tyus Bowser Houston 6’2 ⅝ 247 Sr. He ran a 4.65 40, ‘33 ¼ arms, ‘37 ½ vertical, 10’7 broad and 6.75 3 cone all of which were elite. In 2013 as a true freshman he was a bit player (26 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 5.5 TFL, 1 FF, 1 INT) then regressed in 2014 (13 tackles, 3 sacks, 3.5 TFL) before breaking out in 2015 (50 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 6.5 TFL, 1 INT, 1 FF) and 2016 (47 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 12 TFL, 1 FF). He looks like a poor man’s Jamie Collins with his size, speed and strength. He’s definitely a poor man’s version as Collins is an athletic freak of nature which Bowser can’t touch but he had a very good Combine and looks fast and explosive on film. He’s tightly built so he struggles tackling in space a bit and is surprisingly weak for nearly 250 lbs. Much of his film is stacking and shedding or dropping into coverage which surprised me a bit due to his 14 sacks the past two years but that will excite 3-4 teams looking for an ILB as he fits well in that scheme. He’d also fit as a 4-3 SLB and could be a part time pass rusher in either scheme. I like Bowser as he’s athletic and versatile. I wish he were stronger and a better tackler but he still projects as an above average starter 3-4 ILB or 4-3 SLB. 3rd round as my #9 LB 4/21/17.
  10. Anthony Walker Jr. Northwestern 6’0 ⅝ 238 Jr. Redshirted one year. He ran a 4.65 40, ‘30 ½ vertical, 9’8 broad, 4.34 shuttle and 7.23 3 cone. He had a very good year in 2014 as a redshirt freshman (51 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 9 TFL, 2 INT, 1 FF) and then his best year in 2015 (120 tackles, 4 sacks, 20.5 TFL, 1 INT, 1 FF) followed by a very good but slightly down year in 2016 (105 tackles, 2 sacks, 10 TFL, 1 INT, 4 FF). His overall production is impressive as he had 7.5 sacks, 39.5 TFL, 4 INT and 6 FF in 3 seasons! He was 5th in the nation in TFL in 2015 as 20.5 is an incredible number (the top 2 by the way, Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd were Top 40 picks last year). Walker had elite production in his 3 years as a starter at Northwestern and he shows good athleticism when going downhill but, as his Combine numbers show, he isn’t a great athlete and struggles when moving backwards or laterally. I also don’t see 4.65 when watching him on film and think he’s more of a 4.75 type athlete. Despite his sub 240 size he fits best on the inside as I don’t think he has the length to play SLB or the speed to play WLB. He maybe could play ILB in a 3-4 but I think he’s probably only suited for MLB in a 4-3 so his lack of versatility could hurt his draft stock. For such a productive guy his tape isn’t that impressive. He isn’t a big hitter, isn’t quick or agile and is instinctive but his lack of athleticism inhibits that from even being special. He has enough size to battle OL, good instincts and great production but I expected more from him after seeing his numbers and was underwhelmed by his tape. Late 3rd as my #10 LB 4/21/17.
  11. Vince Biegel Wisconsin 6’3 ¼ 246 Sr. Redshirted one year. Five years out of HS so he’s an older prospect. He ran a 4.67 40, ‘32 ⅜ arms, ‘33 ½ vertical, 9’10 broad, 4.30 shuttle and 6.92 3 cone with it all being about average (40 above average). He was a part time player in 2013 (25 tackles, 2 sacks, 3 TFL) and then had two very good seasons in 2014 (56 tackles, 7.5 sacks, 16.5 TFL, 2 FF) and 2015 (66 tackles, 8 sacks, 14 TFL) yet regressed in 2016 (44 tackles, 4 sacks, 6 TFL, 1 FF). He was a pass rusher at Wisconsin but watch his LSU tape and tell me he has the strength to stay in that role in the NFL. He was driven into the turn on the very first play of the game by a TE and regularly was pancaked. He has the athleticism and his arms are JUST long enough that I guess someone would keep him as a pass rusher but to me he’s clearly a 4-3 SLB and not a pure pass rusher. He’s a little tight in the hips but has quick feet and is very active. He has enough athleticism in fact that he might be able to play WLB in a 4-3 and has enough size to bulk up a bit and play ILB in a 4-3. He’s tough to evaluate as the tools are there for a lot of teams to go in a variety of directions with him but there is little tape of him doing anything other than rushing the passer or read and reacting in a stack and shed type role. Due to this he’s a roll of the dice kid but his combination of quickness, speed and frame are impressive and I suspect he’ll end up as a starting linebacker somewhere, in some scheme. I’d go SLB in a 4-3. Late 3rd round as my #11 LB 4/21/17.
  12. Matt Milano Boston College 6’0 ½ 223 Sr. He ran a 4.67 40, ‘35 vertical and 10’6 broad. He barely played in 2013-2014 with 18 tackles COMBINED, had a good season in 2015 (60 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 17.5 TFL, 2 FF) and a similar season in 2016 (58 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 11 TFL, 1 INT). His 13 sacks and 29 TFL the past two seasons is impressive. He’s a big hitter who is almost a tweener SS/WLB and at worst should be a standout special teams player. He’s good in coverage, has a sense of where he is in regards to his teammates for zones and is very agile. Despite his lack of size, he’s very strong and doesn’t worry me as a 4-3 WLB. He even has some stack and shed tape and MAYBE could bulk up and be a serviceable MLB, though I think WLB is obviously his best fit. He has some tape missing tackles in space, is a good but not great athlete for his weight at least and is probably pigeonholed as a 4-3 WLB so he isn’t a great prospect but I like his tape and think he’ll be an average starter in the NFL. Early 4th round as my #12 LB 4/21/17.
  13. Jayon Brown UCLA 6’0 231 Sr. He ran a 4.70 40, ‘31 ½ vertical and 10’0 broad. He barely played in 2013-2014 (10 tackles), then had a great year in 2015 (93 tackles, 0.5 sacks, 2 TFL, 6 PBUs) and an even better 2016 (120 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 7 TFL, 3 INT, 6 PBUs). He’s a thick linebacker that seems to have the ability to play WLB or MLB in a 4-3, possibly even SLB. He doesn’t really fit a 3-4 scheme due to his lack of height. He moves well laterally and shows very good agility. He isn’t a great athlete but makes up for it with this agility and looks like a good cover LB, also evidenced by his 3 INT and 12 PBUs the past two years. He’s a good tackler and has the heart to stick his nose in with the big guys but is easily enveloped by them and can’t stack and shed at all. It makes me think WLB would be his best fit in the pros. At UCLA he played WLB and then moved to MLB in nickel and dime packages. I could see the same thing occur in the pros as his good cover skills will be his most valued trait. I like Brown but think his ceiling is low due to his average athleticism. He projects as a cover linebacker only in some schemes and a WLB and cover linebacker in others. He has a low ceiling but has two +90 tackle seasons and shows good skill against the pass which has never been more valued so he projects as a solid mid round pick. Early 4th round as my #13 LB 4/21/17.
  14. Kendell Beckwith LSU 6’2 243 Sr. He didn’t work out at the Combine. He barely played in 2013 (11 tackles) but then had three straight seasons in 2014 (77 tackles, 2 sacks, 7.5 TFL, 1 INT), 2015 (84 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 10 TFL, 2 FF) and even 2016 despite missing 3 games with an injury (91 tackles, 1 sack, 6 TFL). Tore his ACL during bowl practices so he might miss his entire rookie season. He’s a big, thick MLB type that excels in the box. He can play with OL and has the ability to stack and shed. A 4-3 team looking for a MLB or a 3-4 looking for an ILB will be interested in him. He looks like a 4.8 or 4.9 athlete so his ACL injury does have the benefit of him getting to avoid the Combine as he likely wouldn’t have been very good. He projects as a 2 down linebacker as he doesn’t have great range against outside runs and in pass coverage he’s not a factor. He has quick feet though so I think he can surprise at times with quickness. He has solid instincts but nothing special. He doesn’t excite me as I don’t like linebackers like this in today’s pass first NFL but he profiles as a good but not great run stopper who won’t be on the field in obvious passing situations. Add in his ACL injury and he could easily drop on draft day. 4th round as my #14 LB 4/21/17.
  15. Duke Riley LSU 6’0 ½ 232 Sr. He ran a 4.58 40, ‘34 ½ vertical, 10’2 broad, 4.21 shuttle and 6.89 3 cone. He barely played his first three seasons 2013-2015 (51 tackles, 1 TFL COMBINED) and then had a huge 2016 (93 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 9 TFL, 1 INT) so he’s a one year wonder. Riley flashes as he has elite speed and really can track ballcarriers down from behind. I had to rewind the tape a few times to make sure I was looking at Riley, a linebacker, and not a safety like Jamal Adams as it was impressive. Also anytime I think a person flashes like Adams it’s worth taking note as he has a Top 5 grade and is a stud. I worry a bit about his one year of production, his mediocre strength and physicality and his poor instincts but his speed and frame make him a possible future starter as a 4-3 WLB or possibly even as a 4-3 SLB or MLB (least interested in him at MLB due to his poor instincts). Some will downgrade him too much for not being on the field till 2016 but his 2016 tape was good and his measurables are great so I’m still interested in him. 4th round as my #15 LB 4/21/17.
  16. Connor Harris Lindenwood 5’11 ⅛ 242 Sr. He ran a 4.73 40, ‘33 vertical, 9’6 broad, 4.31 shuttle and 7.13 3 cone all of which were average to below average. He comes from a very low level of competition but absolutely dominated it with 633 career tackles, most ever by any NCAA player-all levels included. He was also the Cliff Harris Award Winner in 2016 (given to the best defender in Division II, III and NAIA COMBINED). He’s an extremely thickly built linebacker with average athleticism. He could fit in a 3-4 at ILB but makes the most sense as a 4-3 MLB as he has great instincts, an incredible motor and had elite production. He will probably take a little time to adjust to the faster pace and better talent in the NFL but coaches rave about his football intelligence, instincts and work ethic. I think he’ll work out as a 2 down linebacker and has a little upside surprise as he should improve throughout his career due to his work ethic. Late 4th round as my #16 LB 4/21/17.
  17. Ben Boulware Clemson 6’0 238 Sr. He didn’t run at the Combine but had a ‘29 ½ vertical, 9’3 broad, 4.43 shuttle and 7.02 3 cone with all but the 3 cone being atrocious. He barely played in 2013 (21 tackles, 1.5 TFL, 1 INT), was an average player in 2014 (40 tackles, 1 sack, 5 TFL, 1 INT), had a very good year in 2015 (82 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 8 TFL, 2 INT, 3 FF) dominated in 2016 (116 tackles, 4 sacks, 11.5 TFL, 1 INT, 3 FF). He’s a very intense, non-stop motor type player who was the leader of that defense the past two years. He sometimes takes it too far but I have no problem having a revved up player. He headhunts and is sometimes a dirty player. He plays faster than his measurables, probably due to his instincts which are elite. He really is just a big cliche as he’s a coach on the field with his instincts, his just a football player and plays better than he should as a pure athlete and is a lunch pail type. He’ll have to be schemed for as he doesn’t have great range, in run support and definitely in pass coverage but he brings a toughness and fiery attitude to a defense that I’m a fan of. Make your Zach Thomas or Dat Nguyen comparison and move on. He’s an easy guy to root for and should be a fan favorite if he sticks. I initially thought he’d be good on special teams but he’s so slow I wonder if that is accurate. Some teams will have him off their draft board due to his measurables and some teams will be interested in him in the mid to late rounds. I like him and think he’ll stick as a backup or mediocre starter who excels in certain areas but has to be schemed for due to obvious deficiencies athletically. Late 4th round as my #17 LB 4/21/17.
  18. Alex Anzalone Florida 6’2 ⅞ 241 Jr. Redshirted one year. He ran a 4.63 40, ‘30 ½ vertical, 9’8 broad, 4.25 shuttle and 6.88 3 cone. He barely played in 2013-2015 (22 tackles, 1 TFL COMBINED) and then had a solid 2016 (53 tackles, 3 sacks, 4 TFL) so he’s a one year wonder and even his one year wasn’t anything special. Very injury prone with 3 of his 4 years with 8 games or less played (only 2 games in 2015). When healthy he’s an emotional player that shows good athleticism. His tape is that of a 5th rounder but with his ridiculous bill of health I don’t want any part of him except as a camp invite. Free agent as my #18 LB 4/20/17.
