Don Cherry

School: Villanova
Position: ILB
Positive: Three-year starter awarded all-America honors the past 2 years. Senior totals included 88 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 3 sacks. Career-best 108 tackles and 21.5 tackles for loss came the prior year when he also forced 5 fumbles. Intense, hard charging linebacker best making plays up the field. Instinctive, quickly locates the ball and sells out to make the play. Breaks down well, plays with excellent pad level and uses his hands to protect himself. Quick in all his actions, fluid opening his hips to drop into coverage and displays a good change of direction. Disciplined, efficient and constantly takes good angles to the action.
Negative: Really does not play to his 40 time. Does not display lateral speed and has only an average closing burst. Undersized and engulfed at the point by blocks. Average production against the pass.
Analysis: Cherry was an ultra productive run defender but comes with average size and ball skills. He could do well as a backup on the inside of a 34 defense and plays with a special-teams mentality which is added value.
