Carl Bradford

School: Arizona State
Position: OLB
Positive: Two-year starter who finished with 61 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, and 8.5 sacks last season after 81 tackles, 20.5 tackles for loss, and 5 pass defenses the prior year. Intense, fiery linebacker best making plays in the box or up the field. Chases the action hard, relentless in pursuit of the runner, and plays with good pad level. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself, sells out on the blitz and makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Instinctive and effectively reads the action. Efficient, takes good angles to the play, and is physical in all aspects of his game. Disciplined and stays with cover assignments.
Negative: Struggles making plays in reverse, does a lot of face guarding when the ball is in the air, and slightly stiff changing direction. Lacks natural bulk and can be handled by blockers on occasion.
Analysis: Bradford is a competitive defender who gets the most from his abilities but comes with limitations. He has the skills necessary to line up in a 3-4 alignment and offers a special-teams mentality.
