Evaluation: K'Vaughan Pope, the No. 1 outside linebacker in the East and No. 8 nationally, showed his explosiveness and his ability to flip his hips and run well. He was smooth in coverage, and he understood drop back depth during 7-on-7 action Sunday at The Opening.
Pope, who plays at Dinwiddie (Va.) High, is smooth when transitioning from his backpedal to running with a tight end. He read the quarterback well while playing in a zone and he had a feel for positioning and where the play was going.
