OLB Sean Weatherspoon Scouting Report

OLB Sean Weatherspoon, Missouri
Pos. Rank: 3 Grade: 1st-2nd Round Height: 6-1 1/2 Weight: 239 40: 4.55 Year: 4-Sr.

The Good: Undersized yet athletic weak side linebacker prospect who makes plays sideline to sideline. Fluid moving about the field, plays with good balance and nicely flows to the action. Shows a good head for the ball in run defense, has a burst to the action, and wraps up tackling. Uses his hands to protect himself, covers a lot of area on the field, and makes a lot of plays in space. Fast to the flanks and easily cuts off the corners from running backs. Shows nastiness in his game.

The Bad: Lacks overall size and easily blocked from the action or gets caught up in the traffic. Bites on play-action passes and occasionally comes up the field to quickly.

The Verdict: Weatherspoon has been ultra productive on the college level and possesses the speed and movement skills to start as a weak side linebacker in the NFL. He's a terrific prospect and a three-down linebacker.
