Another CNNSI draft prospect profile
Here's another interesting draft profile from CNNSI:
Ht., Wt.: 6-2.5, 256
40 Time: 4.67
BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after posting 49/10.5/8. Totaled a career-best 93 tackles as a junior.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, aggressive linebacker with terrific instincts. Diagnoses the action and quickly locates the ball. Strong at the point, defeats blocks and wraps up tackling. Takes good angles to the play, gets depth on drops and displays skill in zone coverage. Lined up in a three-point stance and effective off the edge.
NEGATIVES: Not an explosive or quick defender. Marginal skill in pursuit.
ANALYSIS: A prospect who's done everything asked of him. A passionate football player with a good degree of upside potential at the next level. Needs to fine-tune his game yet could quickly find his way into a starting lineup.
The player: Bobby Carpenter, OLB, from 2006. CNNSI gave him a higher grade than they had given DeMarcus Ware the year before (4.08 vs. 3.92), rating him as a 1st round prospect:
