Prospect Profile: Danny Tripplett

Danny Tripplett School: Northern Iowa
Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 247 40: 4.81 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Junior college transfer who's started the past two seasons. Played in only seven games as a senior totaling 32.5/5.5.

Positives: Hard-working defender best playing downhill. Fast off the edge, quickly changes direction or alters his angle of attack. Breaks down well, fluid turning to run with tight ends in pass coverage and always working to get involved in the play. Redirects to ball carriers and wraps up tackling.

Negatives: Slow locating the ball and lacks top instincts. Engulfed at the point by opponents and gets wired in blocks. Not a sudden or flashy defender.

Analysis: A prospect who projects to inside linebacker, Tripplett saw his season cut short and as a result will have a tough time making it at the next level. Should be given a chance in a 34 defense and has possibilities as a special teams player.
