2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jordie Tripp, OLB, Montana

The quick rising Tripp was a four-year starter with Montana. Excellent speed and explosion could translate into great coverage skills at the next level. Once considered a late-round flier, he is a name to watch as the draft draws closer.

Ideal height and length. Showed good speed at the combine and has plenty of game film of him flying all over the field. Below average arm length. Footwork still a bit of a work in progress. Would greatly benefit from being coached up. At his best when he can take off downhill and aggressively pursue. Swallowed up by bigger blockers. Could afford to add a little more upper body strength. Average open field tackler. Misses too many tackles.

Good sideline-to-sideline range. Excellent lateral agility. Plays at a really high and intense level. Brings it every single play. Can sense a strong desire and competitiveness in his style of play. Very good ability to read the run and mix it up in the hole. Good use of outside leverage. Again, would benefit tremendously from more coaching.

Tripp projects as a late third to early fourth round prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft.
