Nick Niemann LB Iowa
NFL Draft 2021 Scouting Report

40-yard dash time: 4.45-seconds
Height: 6-4 Weight: 233 lbs
Position rank: #22
Overall Rating: 64.0/100
Los Angeles Chargers Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 6 - Pick Number: 185 (LAC)
Strengths
  • An aggressive run defender, filling run lanes hard, and won't shy from contact. Plays with violence to fight off blocks, flashing a physical nature. An intense, powerful hitter who willingly gives up his body.
  • A bit stiff but makes the clean open-field tackle. Good effort in pursuit.
Weaknesses
  • Plays upright. Ducks his head and fails to wrap up at times. Inconsistent in giving full effort to be the second man in on the play. Must learn to use hands to beat blocks.
  • Not a sudden or quick-twitch athlete. Will never be the strongest player on the field and can struggle to shed from different angles.
  • Has lean limbs and needs to get stronger and add bulk to his frame.
  • Doesn't have enough speed, power or bulk to fit any LB position perfectly in the NFL.
  • Lacks elite quickness and change-of-direction ability to handle NFL slot receivers after initial contact.
