Alex Anzalone

Strengths:

  • Size
  • Athletic
  • Plus range
  • Versatile
  • Decent in coverage

Analysis: Alex Anzalone is a versatile linebacker who has desired size and athleticism to fit into any defensive scheme. His fluid hips allow for easy flips and turns in space. Wide open strider with plus range. Makes up plenty of ground to the perimeter when looking to reel in running backs. Plays with gap-to-gap lateral quickness in his shuffle. Races downhill to get a taste of what iso blockers are serving up. Three-down linebacker who showed off the speed to carry running backs down the field in coverage. Has experience playing all three linebacker spots. Squeezes routes from zone and has acceleration to match seam-running tight-ends.

Weaknesses:

  • Durability
  • Not a playmaker
  • Block shedding
  • Balance

Analysis: Alex Anzalone has had substantial injuries in his background that helped limit his playing time and production. Has no interceptions or forced fumbles at Florida. Plays with inconsistent base. Contact balance is very average. Needs to improve with taking on pulling guards and cross blocking H-backs. Disengagement takes too long and he expends too much energy. Needs to punch and move to avoid being engulfed by linemen. Overreacts to play fakes and will lose sight of the ball.

NFL Comparison: Anthony Hitchens

Draft Projection: Round 3
