Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Deion Jones Atlanta Falcons

Traditional off-the-line linebacker prospect who lacks ideal size but compensates with athleticism and production. Not overly tall or long and will need to add bulk in college on a somewhat limited frame. However, a potentially position-versatile linebacker who could play multiple schemes thanks to athleticism and instincts. Shows impressive downhill pursuit ability and a penchant for tracking plays to the perimeter with his speed. Diagnoses plays quickly and hunts the ball. Effective in the gap or pursuing to the perimeter. Often beats second-level blockers with athleticism and proper angles. Flashes consistent tackling technique and power. Arrives at the ball with a purpose. Can provide the big hit. Closing speed suggests intriguing potential as a blitzer. Accelerates and decelerates with relative ease. Plays too high at times and can improve pad level consistency. Usually a sound tackler but occasionally tackles at the shoulders. Athleticism and high motor can get him out of position occasionally, so he will need to harness his physical skills and aggressiveness. Needs more experience matching up with tight ends and backs in coverage, but owns the requisite athleticism to succeed there. Definite high-major talent who could be a multi-year power conference starter and perhaps own long-term NFL Draft ceiling thanks to athleticism and versatility.
