Nakobe Dean ILB Georgia Scouting Report

Position rank: 2
40-yard dash time: 4.52-seconds
Height: 6-0, Weight: 225 lbs
Strengths
  • Flashes closing speed and agility to reach passers from the blind side or up the middle before they can escape.
  • Greet feel in coverage. Often arrives at the receiver at the same time as the ball, giving up few yards after the catch. Possesses straight-line speed to stay with or chase down receivers in man.
  • A bit stiff but makes the clean open-field tackle. Good effort in pursuit.
  • Can attack the edge with speed and has the flexibility to dip low and under the tackle's reach.
  • Trusts his eyes and shows no hesitation with good anticipation to avoid blockers.
Weaknesses
  • Loses size battle to many tight ends and is easily pushed away on out routes.
  • More of a straight-line athlete with some stiffness in his hips to slow .his change of direction.
  • Possesses below-average instincts for the linebacker position. Leaves more plays on the field than he makes.
  • His lateral agility and burst often put him in position to make big plays, but he takes questionable routes to the ball and struggles to avoid blockers when in pursuit.
  • Lacks the strength to blow up fullbacks and bulk/length to prevent getting engulfed by better linemen at the second level.
