Draft Rewind 2010 - Donald Butler - San Diego Chargers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about DONALD BUTLER: Washington, 6011 2235 4.65. Two-year starter. A good athlete that is instinctive. Explosive first step. Uses hands well and takes good downhill angles. Tracks well when moving forward and in space. Some hesitation in initial read but when he “sees it” he is quick to the ball. Runs well and is a willing hitter. Lacks power at the point of attack. Does not hold up well working against a lead block or a lineman working to the second level. Gets bounced around inside and lacks lower body power. Solid in coverage. Takes good drops and is athletic in transition. Good zone awareness. Good motor. Struggles in the physical part of linebacker play, but has some tools. In his career has 239 tackles, 27 for loss, 3 sacks, and 5 passes broken up. Did not participate at the Combine due to a right ankle sprain. Third/ fourth round. (A-32 5/8, H-9 1/2, BP-35, SS-4.29).
