Ronald Stanley School: Michigan State
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 235 40: 4.75 Year: 4Sr
Bio:Four-year starter and All-Conference
selection who led the team in tackles as a
senior posting 125/9/2. Accumulated 100 or
more tackles each of the past three seasons.
Used at both outside and middle linebacker.
Positives: Efficient, alert defender who flies around
the football. Diagnoses the action, takes good
angles to the play and quick locating the ball.
Breaks down well, scrapes well laterally and
rarely off his feet. Disciplined, does not bite on
ball fakes and immediately picks up coverage
assignments. Displays quickness and explosion
filling gaps up the field.
Negatives: Not fluid dropping
into space and does more turning and chasing
than actual covering. Cannot immediately alter
his angle of attack. Slow getting through the
trash laterally and held up at the point of attack
by blocks. Not a sudden or explosive defender.
Analysis: A consistent defender with excellent
intangibles and football intellect, Stanley lacks
the pure size/speed numbers for the next level.
The inability to be effective in pass coverage
lends one to believe he's best off on the inside
of a 34 defense where he is allowed to freely flow
to the action. An inexpensive backup who must
make it on special teams.
