PLAYERS
Josh Linam
Position: ILB
Class:  Sr
HT: 6'2"
WT: 237 lbs.
40 Time: 4.85
Conference: Conference USA
Biography: Senior totals included 66 tackles/10 tackles for loss/2 sacks after he had 78/9/1 as a junior. All-Academic selection the past two years.

Positives: Hardworking college linebacker with marginal athleticism for the next level. Disciplined, displays good instincts and flies around the field working to make positive plays. Stacks well against the run, wraps up when tackling and works through the whistle. Adequate change-of-direction ability.

Negatives: Lacks speed in pursuit and cannot cut off the corners from running backs. Swallowed up by blocks on the inside. Limited burst to the action.

Analysis: Linam was a hardworking college player who stood out defending the run. He's a two-down defender who must make his mark on special teams this summer to make a roster.

Projection: FA
