Draft Rewind 2007 - Paul Posluszny - Jacksonville Jaguars

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about PAUL POSLUSZNY: Penn State, 6015 238 4.70. Three-year starter that makes plays. An excellent technique linebacker with rare instincts. Sudden with first step reactions. Gets downhill in a hurry. Nice compact movements. Takes quick short steps reacting to blocks. Takes good angles in pursuit. Athletic and fluid to play on the outside. Has the tools to redirect off a block. Rarely does he get walled off. Hell bent for leather type of player that consistently gives a second effort. Gets good depth on his zone drops and can run down the field with backs on wheel routes. His speed in coverage improved as did the healing on his knee. Overcame a knee injury and position change to finish the year strong. As an inside linebacker in 2006 he struggled to take on blocks at him because of strength and playing a new position. Plays with rare anticipation, instincts, and intensity. Explosive hitter. Runs through the tackle. Quick movement out of transition to break on the ball. Has a burst and catch up speed. Outstanding football aptitude. Mentally and physically tough. Doesn’t stay blocked. Aggressive and competitive. Can defeat the blocker and stack the inside run. Plays with good knee bend and functional strength. Range to cut off the outside run. A three down player that never has to come off the field. Holds the Penn State record for career tackles. First round. (A-33 3/4, H-9 1/2, BP-22, SS-4.21). (Posluszny was originally drafted by Buffalo.)
