Draft Rewind 2012 – Bobby Wagner – Seattle Seahawks

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about BOBBY WAGNER: Utah State, 6002 241 4.49.  Four-year starter and a two-year captain. A three-down linebacker. Plays square with his toes pointed up the field. Sudden read and react. Quick and explosive reactions at times. Attacks blockers aggressively. Tends to get tall on a block after initial contact. Inconsistent using his hands to shed. He is a little mechanical in movements ‘playing by the numbers’ rather than natural instincts. Has good overall technique and shows good toughness. Struggles playing over a tight end where he does not appear natural and his footwork is below average. He plays better inside and backs off. Shows good range in pursuit and normally takes a good angle to the ball. Decent in coverage, taking good drops and reacting well on the throw. Does a nice job in zone coverage recognizing routes in the short and deep zones. Has his head on a swivel playing the receiver and the quarterback. OK in man cover, staying with the tight end and mirroring backs routes well. Solid in all areas of linebacker play. An inside linebacker prospect that could play outside in some schemes. May need reps in certain schemes. Active in his play. Takes good downfield pursuit angles. Does a good job as an outside linebacker cushioning and folding back across the defense looking for the cutback. Sprints to the ball. Plays on the punt team for the Aggies. Voted defensive MVP in Senior Bowl game. Outstanding on special teams’ coverage. 2011 stats: 147 tackles, 11.5 TFL, 4 sacks, 2 INTs. Did not participate in Combine due to pneumonia. Second/third round. (A-32 1/2, H-9 7/8, BP-24, SS-4.25).
