Draft Profile: Bio
Ty'Ron Hopper, originally hailing from Roswell High School, garnered attention as a standout football prospect, earning impressive ratings as a 4-star recruit by both ESPN and 247 Sports. After an illustrious high school career, Hopper committed to Florida, where he began his collegiate journey.

His freshman year in 2019 saw limited action, with Hopper appearing in just one game and playing a total of 3 snaps at cornerback for the Gators. Despite minimal playing time, he displayed glimpses of potential. The following year, as a sophomore in 2020, Hopper saw increased involvement, featuring in 5 games and participating in 75 snaps. He made 9 tackles, 4 assists, and 8 stops while adding 3 total pressures, including one sack.

Continuing to make strides, Hopper's junior season in 2021 proved pivotal for his development. Playing in 13 games and contributing on 471 snaps, he emerged as a reliable presence on the field. He recorded 51 tackles, 11 assists, and 34 stops, along with 2 pass breakups in coverage. As a pass rusher, he demonstrated his effectiveness with 13 total pressures, including 2 sacks. After transferring to Missouri for his senior year in 2022, Hopper continued to showcase his abilities, culminating in an impressive season where he logged 54 tackles, 15 assists, and 37 stops, along with 2 pass breakups and an interception in coverage. This earned him recognition as Second Team All-SEC in 2023.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Can cover ground quickly, effectively managing running backs and tight ends in vertical routes thanks to his notable speed and agility.
  • Exhibits a powerful rip move to bypass blockers, enhancing his efficiency against the run and pass rush.
  • Displays excellent sideline-to-sideline mobility, capable of making high-impact chase-down tackles.
  • Instinctual playmaker with the ability to detect and react swiftly to play developments.
  • Demonstrates a high motor and relentless pursuit, often making plays across the field.
  • Fluid in zone coverage with a sharp ability to close gaps when targets enter his zone.
  • Effective blitzer with a quick closing speed on quarterbacks.
  • Big hitter, using his length and explosiveness to disrupt plays.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Needs to increase his size and strength to better engage and shed offensive linemen in the run game.
  • Lacks force in re-routing tight ends, struggling against physical play at route breaks.
  • Occasionally fixates on the backfield in zone coverage, missing shifts in offensive setups.
  • Requires improvement in tackling technique to prevent extra yards on contact.
  • Exhibits moments of indecisiveness, leading to missed opportunities and ineffective angles in play pursuit.
Scouting Report: Summary

Ty'Ron Hopper is a versatile linebacker who brings high-speed pursuit and solid coverage skills to the table. His ability to track down plays from sideline to sideline and his agility in coverage can make him an asset in a defensive coordinator's scheme. His high motor and consistent effort on the field allow him to contribute both on special teams and defense.

However, Hopper's transition to the NFL is not without challenges. His lean frame and lack of bulk are concerns against the bigger, faster NFL offenses, particularly in taking on blocks and handling tight ends in physical matchups. These limitations could hinder his effectiveness in the box and against the run. Improving his functional strength and refining his tackling technique will be critical for him to handle the rigors of NFL play and expand his role on the defense.

Overall, Hopper's draft stock as a Day 3 pick reflects his upside to evolve into a dependable starter, particularly in schemes that can leverage his speed and coverage abilities while minimizing his exposure to physical mismatches.
