2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Sean Porter, OLB, Texas A&M

Texas A&M Aggies linebacker Sean Porter was a highly productive player in his collegiate career and displayed a knack for providing run support and could also develop into a three-down contributor early in his career.

Porter does a lot of little things very well, which don't show up in the box score directly. Takes great angles and is rarely more than a half step late, which allows him to stay on assignment and occupy running lanes. Decent take-on abilities allow him to blitz with better than average effectiveness. Not a natural pass rusher yet, though. Plants and drives toward the ball-carrier, working through crowds to make the tackle. Closes and hits with a snap. Doesn't leave his feet much, but it does happen on occasion. Not a true 3-4 OLB. Flexes well on the outside and can shape the corner. Coverage ability is still in development. Long arms allow him to challenge passing lanes. A bit thin through the middle and could afford to add another 15 pounds of muscle.

Short zone coverage is solid. Needs to keep his head on a swivel. Not physical, yet fluid enough to handle more athletic tight ends in man coverage. Played in 40 straight games at A&M.
