Christian French

School: Oregon
Position: OLB
Positive: Two-year starter used at both outside linebacker and defensive end. Posted 29 tackles, 5 tackles for loss and 2 sacks last season in 8 games, missing the 2nd half of the campaign with a torn pectoral muscle. Physically talented defensive front seven player with a large upside. Breaks down well, effectively uses his hands to protect himself and moves well to every area of the field. Fluid changing direction, easily slides laterally or collapses outside-in defending the run. Athletic, and shows the ability to defeat blocks getting to the action. Covers a good amount of area on the field, gets depth on pass drops and has a closing burst.
Negative: Has been marginally productive and shows more flashes than consistency.
Analysis: French looks the part but only occasionally plays to it and is now coming off an injury which sidelined him half of his senior season. He has the underlying skill to be a prototypical 34 outside linebacker but must rebound from his injury and start to play at a high level.
