Deontae Skinner

School: Mississippi State
Position: OLB
Positive: Three-year starter who finished with 64 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, and 1 sack last season. Junior totals included 62 tackles. Hard-working, stay-at-home linebacker who plays smart, disciplined football. Patient, instinctive, and stays with assignments. Moves well laterally, possesses a quick closing burst, and shows decisiveness getting to the action. Gets depth on pass drops, flows well to the play, and shows ability in space.
Negative: Possesses average ball skills. Offers marginal long speed and not effective in pursuit.
Analysis: Skinner was consistently productive for Mississippi State and is a linebacker who relies on his instincts to make plays. He's a backup at the next level who will make a roster primarily as a special teams candidate.
