Eric Kendricks

School: UCLA
Position: ILB
Bio: Three-year starter and recipient of the 2014 Butkus Award as well as the Lott Trophy. UCLA's all-time leading tackler. Awarded all-conference honors since his sophomore season. Senior totals included 149 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss and 4 sacks as well as three interceptions. Junior totals included 106 tackles.
Positive: Small but fierce linebacker constantly around the action. Instinctive, quick to locate the runner and rarely knocked off his feet. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself and covers a large amount of area. Intense and works hard in all areas. Fast both laterally and in a straight line. Explodes up the field defending the run, takes on bigger ballcarriers and wraps up at the point of attack. Plays with suddenness, quickly gets outside the numbers to cut off the corners and shows great ability in pursuit. Remains disciplined with coverage assignments and shows the ability to stay step for step with fast running backs anywhere.
Negative: Lacks height, bulk and gets caught up in the trash. A bit of a drag-down tackler. Will be overmatched by larger tight ends in coverage.
Analysis: Despite size deficiencies, Kendricks plays big, tough football, consistently selling out to make the stop. He's a scheme specific player that's best on the inside of a 3-4 defense but if coached properly Kendricks will have a long and productive NFL career.
