Draft Rewind 2004 - Karlos Dansby - Miami Dolphins

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about KARLOS DANSBY: Auburn, 6032 250 4.59. A very athletic weakside linebacker prospect with a lean build and long arms. Three year starter. Impact player throughout his career. Had a solid senior season. More fluid than physical. Can be neutralized at the point-of-attack — a little slow to shed at times — lacks good strength. Works well on plays away. Can chase down backs from the backside with speed. Gives good pursuit effort. Agile and light on his feet. Can avoid low contact well. Active — instinctive — makes plays. Is an aggressive, usually secure tackler, but is more of a grabber than an explosive drive-through striker. Good blitzer off the edge — uses his hands and long arms well to play through the running back block — redirects well and closes with a burst. Very effective in coverage. Quick in his backpedal. Can turn and run smoothly. Breaks on the ball alertly — has good leaping ability and natural interception skills. Quality prospect who needs to upgrade his strength to reach his full potential. (Originally drafted by Arizona)
