Scouting Report: Dorian O’Daniel
School: Clemson Position: Outside Linebacker Class: Senior Height: 6-1 Weight: 215 lbs Projected Draft Round: 3-6
An extremely versatile, off the ball linebacker, O’Daniel is a rangy, playmaking linebacker that isn’t a matchup liability in today’s NFL. O’Daniel is a truly balanced linebacker prospect that can cover tight ends and running backs, pass rush, and defend the run. Most NFL offenses today are scheming to get linebackers out in coverage that are at a matchup disadvantage against TE’s and RB’s, and O’Daniel is the type of linebacker / safety / cornerback hybrid player that nullifies the offense’s advantage with different types of receivers.
