Honors & awards
  • 2022 Dick Butkus Award
  • 2022 Campbell Trophy
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s a sure and violent wrap-up tackler with sideline-to-sideline range. He’s an excellent tackler in space, showing loose hips and the ability to break down and contain runners.
  • Can attack the edge with speed and has the flexibility to dip low and under the tackle's reach.
  • Good closing speed with long arms to drag down quarterbacks and running backs.
  • Campbell will always try to plow into the largest piles and has a good knack of ending up glued to the ballcarrier.
  • He possesses an intriguing blend of size and movement skills. He has good length, wide shoulders, and long arms, and Campbell has room to add weight.
  • Reacts well to draw plays and misdirection, sniffs out screens to his side of the field. Keeps his eyes in the backfield when rushing the passer and uses hands and strength to stay in the play.
  • Campbell has value as an inside blitzer as well, showing the initial burst to shoot through gaps and disrupt the backfield.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s often slow to react and locate the ball against the run.
  • Campbell is a stretch to be able to cover tight ends or running backs in the NFL.
  • Needs to use his hands more violently to defeat blocks while coming after the quarterback at the next level.
