Phillip Steward ... a Will linebacker candidate?

Discuss your thoughts about anything draft related. Mocks, College and Pro. Knock yourselves out!!! LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • The Cougars often placed Stewart in the slot in its nickel package, and the linebacker claims that he has the best hands on a team that has historically been a pass-happy program.

    Steward lines up as a nickelback in about 40% of plays in this tape. He blitzes maybe 25% of the snaps. He makes the tackle on 13 plays, sacks the QB once, blocks one pass, and recovers one fumble (backwards pass). And he does it all with velocity, tenacity, and selectivity. Throw out almost any scouting cliché and Steward’s doing it: sheds blockers, wraps up on tackles, electric on blitzes, drops well in coverage, ice-picking

  • I just through reading both those pieces ... and watching that game film against UCLA as well. IMO, there's a lot to like there. Given the level of competition he consistently went up against, I'd personally view him as possibly being one of those mid-round gems (5th Round or on) that Schneider has been so infamous in finding. Could be a special teams guy with a chance to be more (ala Jeremy Lane).
