LANCE BRIGGS: Arizona, 6006 242 4.76. Former fullback who was moved to linebacker as a sophomore. Three year starter inside. Productive player. Short and sturdy with thick legs and good upper body strength. Physical and athletic. Plays with good knee bend. A little hesitant in his initial movement but he attacks blocks aggressively. Needs to use his hands better — leads with his shoulder at times and has some trouble shedding when blockers get into his body. Redirects well and is active on the move. Runs well but has better short speed than long speed. Explosive tackler — wraps and drives through. Decent pass rusher with good power and acceleration. Has coverage promise — shows good range in a zone and has the speed to stay with backs in man-to-man. Solid special teams player. Could project on the outside.
