Anthony Hitchens

School: Iowa
Position: OLB
Positive: Two-year starter who led Iowa in tackles ever since his junior campaign. Senior totals included 112 tackles after a career-best 124 the prior year. Incredibly productive college linebacker with average measurables for the next level. Displays terrific quickness in his overall game, covers a lot of area, and plays faster than his 40 time. Aggressive, gives effort, and goes sideline to sideline to make plays. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself, and explosive at the point of attack. Quarterbacks the defense, effectively reads and diagnosis the action, and does not make mental mistakes.
Negative: Undersized and struggles getting off blocks once engaged at the point of attack. Occasionally over pursues the action.
Analysis: Hitchens gets the most from his ability and is a linebacker who stands out in pursuit. He comes with limited upside but will do well at the next level in a one-gap system and Hitchens should be an asset on special teams.
