Greg Powers Signing Day Evaluation: This guy makes the most plays on film. He splits time with other linebackers, but he is a rock solid player. With his size you would think that he would be a liability in pass coverage assignments, but he moves extremely well and his length gives him some extra inches to work with when covering receivers. He is a solid tackler who is able to make open field tackles. Does not make a ton of huge plays but makes all of the necessary ones.
