—Ideal frame with height, length, weight and athletic profile to play multiple roles in NFL.
—One of the best coverage linebackers in this class, with length to disrupt at all levels of the field.
—Shows some solid ability as a pass-rusher and may see time as sub-package player early in career.
—Fluid athlete who can ease out in a backpedal before firing feet and working laterally.
—Misses too many tackles from a form and functionality standpoint.
—Mechanics and processing skills are still developing and need cohesive and coherent coaching.
—Overly reliant on athleticism; when it doesn't work, he doesn't have technique to match.
—Run-around style creates gaps that effectively increase offensive success on plays he should be stopping.
Emeke Egbule might have the highest ceiling and lowest floor of any linebacker in this year's draft class. He has an above-average athletic and physical profile, which makes him an ideal three-down player who could fill a lot of roles within a defense. But he is so raw and underdeveloped that whoever takes him will have to help him grow as a player before he ever sees the field on Sundays.
