Detroit Lions draft preview LB Kevin Reddick and Jon Bostic
Broke down three films (NC State, Maryland, VA Tech) on UNC MLB Kevin Reddick.
Combine 6014 243 4.72 23 reps 906 broad 2012 85t 6.5 sacks.
Strengths: good inside blitzes. Can sift thru trash and get to the ball carrier. Made plays.
Weaknesses: misses a lot of tackles, limited range. Plays tackle to tackle. Cannot cover in zone.
Bottom line: Not a starter at LB. can be a backup and good special teams guy. 3-4 teams may like him better because he does blitz well from the inside. The Lions would need to take no sooner than the 5th round. Rating 6.1 back up with some upside.
Jonathan Bostic ILB Florida. I broke down two films (Vanderbilt and Ohio State 2011) and saw some themes in his play.
Combine:6010 245 4.61 22 reps 32.5"vj 906" broad 4.24 20 6.99 ldrill.
2012 68 t 3 sacks 2 int
Strength: real good measureables, plays for a good team in the SEC.
Weaknesses get blocked a lot. Does not make plays. Poor tape.
Bottom line: I was not impressed with this guy. He could not get off blocks. Would have to play outside for Detroit. I cannot project him as an NFL starter based on what I have seen. Rating 6 measureables but bad tape.
