Re: UDFA SIGNINGS

He's the name that sticks out for me as well.


STRENGTHS Intelligent, hard-working defender who consistently fulfills his assignments. When at middle linebacker, he reads his keys, doesnít freelance, hits his run fits, and doesnít play outside of his abilities. Good vision to the ball, out-quicks approaching linemen, works his way through trash well, and has the upper body strength to wrap up running backs coming through the hole. Also takes out linemen with cut blocks to free up teammates to make the stop. Shows surprising dip and flexibility around the edge as a defensive end, and boxes well to force the ball back inside. Does not possess sideline to sideline range, but has a nice short area closing burst, coming downhill quickly on blitzing or seeing a lane to a running back. Breaks down quickly to grab elusive ballcarriers trying to cut against the grain. Can handle short areas in zone coverage over the middle against tight ends and crossers, and is capable of dropping into coverage even after showing blitz in the A-gaps before the snap.

WEAKNESSES Height works against him at times; loses the leverage battle in the run game and struggles dealing with trash at his feet, being susceptible to cut blocks. Better reading his keys to beat blockers to their spot than taking them on and disengaging. Gets overaggressive shooting gaps and running himself upfield, allowing backs to find cutback lanes. Lacks elite recovery speed to catch ballcarriers if he false steps or is unable to get off a block. Must prove he has the stamina to play four quarters at a high level in the NFL. Phone booth player with average change-of-direction ability who will struggle in space. Although he played more on the edge as a senior, itís unlikely that he has the length or athleticism to do so in the NFL.

NFL COMPARISON Kevin Burnett

BOTTOM LINE Reddick is yet another North Carolina defender with a somewhat turbulent career but possesses the size and athleticism NFL scouts covet in a prospect likely to be picked on the second day of the draft. The four-year starter presents some position versatility in the NFL. He could start in the middle in the NFL as a thumper for a 3-4 team, or, if he proves he has the athleticism, could possibly be a candidate at strongside linebacker for some teams. This position versatility, his production over four seasons starting, and excellent size make Reddick a likely late second to early third day candidate.

I like.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: UDFA SIGNINGS

Kevin Reddick, MLB, North Carolina

Height: 6013
Weight: 243
Arm Length:32 1/4
Hand Size: 9 3/4
40 time: 4.71
20: 2.60
10:1.60
SS 4.33
3 Cone:7.13
Vert: 30 1/2
Broad: 9' 05"
Bench: 23

Overview
Over the last two years, three North Carolina linebackers have been drafted (Zach Brown, Bruce Carter, Quan Sturdivant). And Reddick, who is the Tar Heels' top defensive prospect, will be the next talented linebacker to hear his name on draft weekend.

Reddick, who was a four-star recruit out of high school, chose North Carolina over Alabama, South Carolina and Tennessee. After he spent a season at a prep school to improve his grades, Reddick arrived at North Carolina and immediately earned a starting job, starting 20 games over his freshman and sophomore seasons.

He battled injuries in 2011, but started 11 games and still finished second on the team with 71 tackles. Reddick is an impressive athlete and strong, physical tackler.

Entering the 2012 season, Notre Dame middle linebacker Manti Te'o was the consensus No. 1 player at his position for the 2013 NFL Draft. But Reddick wasn't far behind in most rankings. While Te'o has lived up to his high-billing and just about cemented his first round value, Reddick has done the opposite.
Analysis
Often used as a blitzer for the Tar Heels in 2012, Reddick has been impressive attacking downhill. But he has also made too many mistakes for a senior linebacker, two-time team captain and four-year starter.

Reddick is a bit straight-linish and stiff, but makes up for his lack of fluidity with his instincts and defensive intelligence, putting himself in positions to succeed. Reddick has the skill-set to earn a starting job in the NFL and currently projects as a solid second day selection.

The biggest reason Reddick has been a faller this season is his questionable effort on the field, too often giving up on plays once engaged and going at half-speed if the play isn't run directly at him. He rarely leaves the field so some of it might be fatigue, but inconsistent urgency and motor is a large concern that will force NFL teams to think twice on draft day.
