Eric Mahl School: Kent State
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 244 40: 4.70 Year: 4Sr
Bio:Second-team All-Conference selection who
posted 96/7.5/2 as a senior, adding a pair of
interceptions. Started the previous two seasons,
totaling a career-high 126 tackles as a junior.
Positives: Productive, hard-working battler consistently
around the ball. Diagnoses the action,
takes good angles to the play and displays
a burst of speed in a straight line. Keeps the
action in front of him and plays under control.
Negatives: Average skills in pass coverage and slow
reacting when the ball's in the air. Slowed up
in the wash moving laterally. Initially makes his
move up the field and gets caught out of position
against the pass.
Analysis: A hard-working
linebacker with solid size/speed numbers, Mahl
may be best on the inside in a system that allows
him to freely flow to the action. Must significantly
improve his skills in pass defense to have any
chance at the next level.
