2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Akeem Ayers

Akeem Ayers, DE/OLB, UCLA (6'4" 255 lbs.)

Positives: He's a versatile linebacker who has the size and speed to line up at several positions on the field. He's a solid tackler who  plays under control. He plays with good discipline and awareness. He has good technique and has the size and strength to get off blocks. He has above-average coverage skills and can make plays on the ball.

Negatives: He needs to more pass-rushing moves to be a consistent pass rusher in the NFL. He will struggle with faster tight ends as he is more quick than fast. Lacks explosiveness, plays too under control.
