2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Kelvin Sheppard

Kelvin Sheppard, LSU (6'1" 250 lbs.)

Positives: He has good size and speed. He was very production his junior and senior including: 226 tackles, five sacks, three forced fumbles, two interceptions. He's a solid tackler and doesn't miss many tackles. He's a leader on the field and does a good job running the defense. He's a durable player.

Negatives: He has a tendancy to get fooled by misdirection plays. He plays too high and does a poor job of getting off blocks. He's not much of a blitzing linebacker. He needs to work on getting better depth in zone coverage.
