Tyler Starr

School: South Dakota
Position: OLB
Positive: Three-year starter named MVFC Defensive Player of the Year in 2013 when he was awarded numerous All-America honors. Finished the year with 71 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, and 9 sacks. Junior totals included 74 tackles. Posted 19 tackles for loss and 14 sacks as a sophomore. Registered 27 career sacks in college. Big, disruptive small-school linebacker who plays with great intensity. Plays with good pad level, effectively uses his hands to protect himself, and displays the ability to bend off the edge as a pass rusher. Rarely knocked off his feet. Displays good awareness and terrific instincts. Remains disciplined with assignments, plays stay-at-home football, and effectively quarterbacks the defense. Has good length and knocks the pass away if he cannot get to the passer.
Negative: Lacks overall quickness, speed, and a burst. Cannot cut off the flanks from ballcarriers. Slow when backpedaling. Stiff and lacks a fluid change direction.
Analysis: Starr was a hard-working and intelligent defender who did a great job making plays up the field. He comes with limitations but can be a designated pass rusher at the next level out of a three-point stance or standing up over tackle.
