2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Caleb Campbell, SS, Army

Campbell started six games during the 2004 season, earning a selection to the Conference USA All Freshman Team. He started all eleven games during his sophomore season, leading Army in tackles with 97 and added five interceptions. He did miss two games due to injury during his junior season, but still finished third in team tackles with 59. He was named team captain before his senior season. The Army granted a special waver to Campbell in order for him to be able to play in the NFL during the 2008 season and will still play in the East-West Shrine Bowl game. A few statistics: Great size and speed combination. Very quick and fast (4.48-40). Can run with most receivers. Takes good angles while pursuing. A sideline-to-sideline player. Great range, can play the whole field. Smooth backpedaling. Turns his hips well. Plays the ball well when it is in the air. Can leap over the receiver. Does not bite or play fakes. Disciplined player who will stay with his assignment. Will come up quickly to support the run. Great open field tackler. An intimidating hitter. He could use better coaching, his footwork needs correction, and he will need to improve the use of his hands. He also sometimes loss focus. Is big for a safety but small for OLB. He is a special player. Campbell is one of the better athletes in this draft. He sometimes gets by with pure athleticism. He is fast and agile enough to play safety in the NFL, but there's talk he can move to outside linebacker (although, he is undersized and under-strength for that position). He's not a twiner, he is a real football player. He definitely has a chance to impress in the all star game and could be a diamond in the rough.
