NFL Draft '07: Scouting Mississippi

Still getting acquainted to a new coaching staff, Mississippi is a program in transition. The team possesses just a single serious NFL prospect though he is a very good one and a first day pick in next April's draft.

Middle linebacker Patrick Willis is an explosive, run defender constantly around the ball. Holding his ground against blocks, Willis quickly changes direction and wraps up tackling, bringing opponents down on initial contact. A three down defender effective in pass defense, Willis remains disciplined with cover assignments and stays with the action. Better in zone and not possessing true man-to-man skills, he can be used in a variety of systems at the next level.
