Outside Linebacker Specific Traits
2 Strong overall diagnostic skills. Finds and reacts to the ball and quickly fills downhill. Puts himself in good position to make plays and rarely takes false steps. Shows a good feel for sniffing out screens and draws. Can be overaggressive with his run fits and as a result is suscpetible to play-action at times.
3 Not an area of strength. Appears to have good upper-body strength but his narrow frame brings up concerns about his point-of-attack skills. Can be engulfed by bigger offensive lineman when caught in phone booth situations. Does not shy away from contact, though, and has a high motor and consistently finishes plays to the whistle.
Range vs. Run
1 Possesses sideline-to-sideline range. Displays strong change-of-direction skills. Closing burst is exceptional and he rarely allows running backs to turn the corner to his side of defense. Also takes good angles to the ball and wades through trash well in pursuit.
2 Reliable wrap-up tackler. Doesn't consistently run through tackles but flashes ability to deliver violent and explosive strike. Does a good job of breaking down in the open field and securing the tackle.
3rd Down Capabilities
2 Excels in coverage. Shows good awareness in zone and does a nice job of locating and getting into underneath throwing lanes. Shows the ability to match up and run with tight ends and backs in man coverage. Ball skills are above-average. Not much of a pass rusher at this point. Does not time up blitzes well and lacks adequate power to run though blockers.

Re: Navarro Bowman
First round talent that drops to late second because of character issues. I be fine with him at 64.
