Prospect Profile: Jared Newberry
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 234 40: 4.73 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Two-year starter who posted 45/9/.5 as a senior, also intercepting one pass and breaking up three more. Junior totals included 67/10/3.
Positives: Athletic linebacker with excellent range. Gets depth on pass drops, fluid moving laterally and easily alters his angle of attack. Displays a burst of closing speed and a good degree of suddenness to his game. Effectively uses hand technique to stay off blocks. Adequate job diagnosing the action and stays with tight ends or running backs in coverage.
Negatives: Slow shedding blocks and handled by opposing receivers. Possesses more of a burst of speed, which he cannot sustain. Inconsistent last season.
Analysis: Coming off a disappointing senior campaign, Newberry has moved from a potential first-day pick into the middle rounds. Possesses the measurables and playing style to be used at weak-side linebacker, and could eventually develop into a starter if he gets his game back on track.
