Steve Longa

School: Rutgers
Position: OLB
Positive: Three-year starter who led Rutgers with 117 tackles last year. Sophomore totals included a career-best 123 tackles and 7.5 tackles for loss. Undersized yet athletic linebacker outstanding in pursuit. Scrapes well laterally, very quick getting down the line scrimmage or outside the box. Displays a terrific closing burst, makes plays in every direction of the field and constantly around the action. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself and quickly locates the ball. Wraps up tackling and gives effort. Displays a fluid change of direction and loses little momentum altering his angle of attack.
Negative: Not quick or fluid pedaling in reverse. Not a stout tackler. Undersized and gets caught in the wash or taken from the action by tight ends.
Analysis: Longa was consistently productive on the college level and is a one gap defender best suited for a run and chase system. He also offers potential as a core special-teams player on coverage units.
