Jamal Merrell

School: Rutgers
Position: OLB
Positive: Three-year starter coming off a disappointing season. Totaled 38 tackles in 10 games last season after 83 tackles the prior year. Relatively athletic linebacker who does not play a physical game. Has nice length, a good change of direction, and easily moves about the field. Covers a lot of area, gets depth on pass drops, and fast moving sideline to sideline. Shows suddenness, the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack, and speed in pursuit.
Negative: Shows a lot of hesitation. Not a strong open field tackler. Struggles getting off blocks and at times would rather not get involved in the action.
Analysis: On paper, Merrell looks like a terrific weakside linebacker prospect and shows the ability to play athletic football. He's displayed marginal improvement in his game and at times looks like he'd rather be someplace else. Merrell will not have a career in the NFL unless the light goes on.
