Highly intelligent player with loads of experience that lacks the athleticism or physical prowess to be an immediate impact
Scout Report – Patrick Queen
Excellent All-around LB with the athleticism and IQ to make an impact on every play
Scout Report – Josiah Tauaefa
He is one of the first to jump on the chance to cut off any runners once a direction has been established, and has a surprising ability to stuff himself where the runner was attempting to go, often requiring the offense to bounce to the outside, or get stalled behind the line of scrimmage.
Scout Report – Natrez Patrick
His skill set is very much geared towards that of an off-ball linebacker, as his main strength comes from his ability to mobilize in coverage, and his seemingly swift movement to crash down on runs, and pick up any backs coming to the flats out of the backfield.
Should Josh Allen be the #1 pick?
Allen and Bosa were both used by their teams as disruptive edge rushers, but aside from that, there are few similarities between the two in how they play the game.
