Shayne Skov Scouting Report
|Height & Weight:||6'3 - 244 lbs.|
|Draft Prediction:||Fourth Round|
2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Shayne Skov, LB , Stanford
Good diagnosis skills. Reads the play and can react quickly to fill the hole. Plays faster than any timed speed will show. Good tackler in a phone booth. Wraps up and takes guys off their feet. Average quickness and change of direction. Not a quick twitch athlete. Plays aggressively downhill. Over pursuit is an issue from time to time and will wash himself out of plays.
Injury history with left knee. Still some lingering concerns about his recovery. Struggles in the open field in coverage. Will have lots of trouble staying with faster backs and tight ends in coverage. May not be viewed as a true every-down linebacker which would really push his stock into the later rounds.
Skov projects as a fourth or fifth round prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft.
