Derek Akunne

School: North Texas
Position: OLB
Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior after leading his team and Conference USA with 108 tackles. Posted 90 tackles in each of the prior two seasons.
Positive: Undersized but fierce and athletic linebacker who goes sideline-to-sideline. Patient, diagnoses plays and does not bite on ball fakes. Breaks down well, quick up the field defending the run and wraps up tackling. Gets depth on pass drops, effective in lateral pursuit and displays a quick as well as fluid change of direction with the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack. Covers a good amount of area and quick getting to the action.
Negative: Small, easily blocked from the play or gets caught up in the trash. Average skill in coverage.
Analysis: Akunne is an under-the-radar linebacker prospect with the ability to backup in a one-gap system.
