Tavante Beckett LB Marshall Draft Profile

Detroit Lions Signed as an undrafted free agent by Detroit Lions
Strengths
  • 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.
  • Intelligent player who can play "MIKE" linebacker despite his lack of size because of his instincts and ability to find the ball in traffic.
  • Reads the quarterback to anticipate and is a candidate to play outside.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks the strength to blow up fullbacks and bulk/length to prevent getting engulfed by better linemen at the second level.
  • Loses size battle to many tight ends and is easily pushed away on out routes.
  • Must work on using violent hands and defeating cut blocks. Also needs to build a variety of pass-rush moves.
  • Saught looking into the backfield occasionally instead of getting to the receiver in the flat. Leaves his feet at times while tackling, and NFL backs will take advantage of that.
  • Slips off too many ballcarriers and needs to complete tackles - will go for the big hit instead of consistently wrapping up.
