Bobby Wagner, OLB, Utah State

Bobby Wagner is an early round prospect with a solid overall game. He is a bit undersized, but plays very well in tight spaces with great tackling skills, good pursuit and noticeable athleticism. Shows a great burst and can find his way to the ball-carrier very quickly.

Wagner's biggest asset when compared to other linebackers is he looks good in coverage. Many linebackers have to develop this skill and it can keep them off the field for at least a season. Wagner shouldn't have that problem. He has a nose for the screen pass and does okay in zone coverage. Needs to do a better job of using his peripheral vision to read the shorter routes.

As a tackler, Wagner is fundamentally sound. He breaks down cleanly, wraps up well and tackles through the ball-carrier. When asked to blitz, he can shed blockers with his long arms. He can hit the edge and displays a nice motor even late in games.

Wagner looks good in most every facet of the game and even though he's a bit too short to play inside, he can play almost any linebacker position in a 4-3 or 3-4 defense.
