Draft Rewind 2011 – Akeem Ayers – Tennessee Titans

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about AKEEM AYERS: UCLA, 6024 254 4.80. Junior entry. Two-year starter and team captain who plays best on the line of scrimmage as an edge rusher. Can play up in a two point stance or down in a three point stance. Can turn the corner. Average upper and lower body flexibility. Needs to upgrade his hand use to lock out and separate from big tackles and tight ends. Needs more upper body strength. Questionable instincts to read and digest quickly. Possesses the size that teams are looking for in an outside linebacker. Looks more athletic and faster on tape than his times. Lacks strength to seal the off tackle gap in the run game. Can stick his foot in the ground and break up quickly on check downs and ball carriers in front of him. Flashes good ability to wrap up tackle. Has the speed and athletic ability to carry a tight end down the field. Ayers has a chance to be an eventual starter with developmental time. He may be over-drafted on splash and flash plays. 2010 stats: 68 tackles, 10 TFL, 4 sacks, 4 PBU, 2 INTs. Edge speed:left 2.25, right 2.34. OSR:16/19. First/second round. (A-33, H-9, BP-18, SS-4.28).
