Gerald Hodges

School: Penn State
Position: OLB
Bio: Full-time starter the past two seasons, winning all-Conference honors after each campaign. Penn State's leading tackler last season posting 109 as well as 8.5 tackles for loss. Intercepted two passes as a senior and broke up seven more. Junior totals included 106/10/.5.
Positive: Athletic, weakside linebacker prospect who plays with an aggressive nature. Explosive, outstanding in pursuit, and covers a lot of area on the field. Gets depth on pass drops, easily changes direction, and loses little momentum when he must immediately alter his angle of attack. Breaks down well, shows a terrific burst of speed bearing down on the play, and skill in pass coverage. Solid open-field tackler who wraps up at the point of attack. Relatively instinctive and shows good wherewithal on the field.
Negative: Easily disrupted by the first block or taken from the action by fullbacks. Lacks size and doesn E(TM)t have much growth potential.
Analysis: Hodges is a speedy linebacker who stands out in pursuit and defending the pass. He's a three-down defender and offers starting potential as a weak-side linebacker for a conventional alignment.
