Nick Kwiatkoski

School: West Virginia
Position: ILB
Positive: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior after 80 tackles and 10 tackles for loss. Career-best 103 tackles came during his junior season. Fierce, run defending linebacker who plays sideline to sideline. Fast up the field or laterally, shows speed in pursuit and cuts the corners off from ball handlers. Possesses a closing burst, plays with a nasty attitude and attacks opponents. Aggressively goes after ball handlers and willingly throws his pads into the pile. Fires through the gaps defending the run and sells out on the blitz. Squares and wraps up tackling. Gets depth on pass drops, instinctive and breaks down well. Fluid scraping laterally and easily redirects to the action.
Negative: Lacks bulk, disrupted by blocks or engulfed by opponents. Occasionally plays out-of-control and bites on the ball fakes or over pursues the action.
Analysis: Kwiatkoski is an underrated run defending linebacker with great intensity and above average athleticism. He offers possibilities at middle linebacker or on the inside of a 34 alignment and should have a long career at the next level.
