Paddy Fisher LB Northwestern Draft Profile

Carolina Panthers Signed as an undrafted free agent by Carolina Panthers
Strengths
  • Tough between-the-tackles defender who shimmies past blockers to fill lanes. Downhill, aggressive run-stuffer with enough strength to stop ballcarriers in the hole.
  • Gives effort between the tackles to find the ball and is willing to take on linemen.
  • Quick to read run, showing good agility and speed to get past blockers and finish. Experienced in coverage and gets a strong jam on outside receivers.
  • Gets his hands in the passing lanes. Effort is mere in coverage.
  • He has good reaction skills and awareness. Forceful tackler vs. the run.
Weaknesses
  • Chase speed is below average, and he gets too upright as a pass rusher - needs to play with better leverage.
  • High-cut and long-legged, and he does not have elite acceleration.
  • Attacks the line but needs work on stacking and shedding blocks.
  • Can be too hesitant when he doesn't find the ball immediately.
  • He'll add quality depth but must earn more than a backup/special teams role.
