Playing a lot of middle linebacker in his film, Orr has good vision into the backfield and uses good instincts after the snap. He keeps his hips square, is an above-average tackler and always finds himself around the ball. His angles are a little rough at times, meaning he has to rely on his athleticism to correct minor problems, but that will change with coaching.

He does a good job of shedding blockers in order to make tackles and moves well from sideline to sideline, showing more burst than his 4.6 40-yard dash time would indicate. He’s still a raw athlete but has a lot of good characteristics that will fit in real well with UW’s 3-4 defensive scheme.
