Alan Baxter

School: Northern Illinois
Position: OLB
Bio: Two-year starter at defensive end awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after otals of 60 tackles/11.5 tackles for loss/9.5 sacks. Junior numbers included 48/12.5/5.5.
Positive: Explosive college defensive end who projects to outside linebacker in the NFL. Fires off the snap with a terrific first step, plays with good pad level and can bend off the edge. Fast up the field, quickly changes direction, and shows skill in backside pursuit. Easily gets down the line scrimmage to make plays, works hard and uses all his assets to their maximum. Keeps his feet moving on contact, plays with good balance, and gets his hands up to knock away the pass if he cannot get to the quarterback.
Negative: Knocked from the point by a single blocker and can be a liability in run defense. Lacks classic height for an outside linebacker.
Analysis: Baxter watched his game take off the past two seasons and constantly disrupted the opponent E(TM)s game plan behind the line scrimmage. His quickness and burst to the action as well as his skills in pursuit will help Baxter find a place as a backup linebacker in the NFL.
