2015 ILB Prospect Grades (FINAL)

Date:
April 24, 2015

 A few notes on our current grades and rankings...

  -- Note: You will see some of these players graded and ranked as OLBs and DEs as well.

 -- We love the non-consensus ILBs in this draft: Give me Ben Heeney, Jake Ryan, Bryce Hager, and the Jeff Luc types over McKinney-Perryman-Dawson...especially considering the price tags. 

 -- I saw commentary that Ben Heeney 'misses too many tackles'. I never saw that on tape. I did see him get into the backfield so quick that he was diving and missing at handoffs, etc.--the key being he was into the backfield so fast the play was headed another direction and he tried to stop it before it got going. His speed and instinct put him in near-miss positions others cant get to in order to make a tackler or get a near-miss.

 -- My deep sleeper of this group: Cole Farrand, Maryland. Nice production, decent measurables. he might be better than our grades are showing.
