Pos. Rank Player School Ht. Wt. 40
OLB 1 Sergio Kindle Texas 6-3 250 4.65
Notes: [Andy Hart] Great closing burst. Strong enough, athletic enough. But lapses in production at times in career. Does all a 3-4 OLB needs to do. [Erik Scalavino] Flashes of ability to beat blockers with speed, power.
OLB 2 Sean Weatherspoon Missouri 6-1 239 4.62
Notes: [Andy Hart] Looks like 4-3 guy. Runs around blocks at times. Decent hitter. Leader. Good all-around player. Not elite rusher. ILB in NE. [Erik Scalavino] Underwhelming footage.
OLB 3 Jerry Hughes TCU 6-2 255 4.65
Notes: [Andy Hart] Ultra productive pass rusher. Play run? Lacks ideal size. Natural pass rusher. Smells the the sack and gets it. [Erik Scalavino] Can certainly get to the QB, but not sure how (bad camera angles don't show him beating his man).
OLB 4 Ricky Sapp Clemson 6-4 252 4.65
Notes: [Andy Hart] Not great sack numbers. Athletic. Quick to ball. Edge setter? [Erik Scalavino] Limited footage of him getting to the QB; trails back side a lot.
OLB 5 Koa Misi Utah 6-3 251 4.75
Notes: [Andy Hart] DE conversion, but good all-around athlete. Not great at any one thing, but solid football player. [Erik Scalavino] Hard hitter; good lateral pursuit; not a lot of footage to evaluate, however.
