Pros:   Large in the lower body with adequate upper-body development and the frame to add mass.

Cons:  Best in the middle, although undersized for the position, as he lacks the lateral quickness to handle coverage responsibilities outside

Styg's Broncos Fit:   racked up production in college, but won't produce those kinds of numbers in the NFL.  But if you dig into this kids game, you see a lot of potential.  He isn't the biggest body, but his frame can take more weight, and he already knows how to uncoil and deliver punishing hits.  Excellent technique, especially in the lower body.  Does a fantastic job of getting and keeping low, and knows how to win battles in the trenches.  Needs to learn to trust his strength in taking on blockers, but this isn't much of a knock, because he instead relies on superb hand technique to separate from defenders, and release from blocks.  Has a great attitude and can bring leadership to the defense, and to special teams, where he could make an immediate contribution.  Not very quick feet, but good hips for his size.  He can turn and run enough not to be a liability, and he can drop quickly enough to cover medium downs.  Has experience calling the defense from the field.  A lot to like here.

Scouting Reports and Offsite Links:

  • * Mississippi State LB Dominic Douglas could be a good UDFA target for someone.  He has experience at OLB and ILB.  He started both of his seasons at MSU after coming over from JC.  Douglas is 6'1, 235.  He doesn't have ideal athletic ability, but he's a rugged LB for a guy his size.  He will take on blockers and fight to get to the ball.  Good tackler.  Not much of a playmaker.  Had 1 sack, 1 INT, and 2 PDs in his career.   [see more...]
