Scouting Report: Jacob Phillips
School: LSU Position: Inside Linebacker Class: Junior Height: 6’4″ Weight: 230 Projected Draft Round: 2-5
Smart, well coached inside linebacker that can quarterback a defense and make plays all over the field. Very much in the mold of today’s NFL linebackers that need to be able to be quick and rangy, but also still hold up against the run as well as cover. Plays in a complex defense that expects their inside linebackers to cover, blitz, and play the run. With limited experience, looks very natural as the leader out on the field, and is patient and doesn’t over-react to plays. Stock could sky-rocket with more playing time.
