Full Name: John Digiorgio School: Saginaw Valley St Pos: OLB
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 224 40: 4.75 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter named, G.L.A.I.C. Player of the Year in 2005. Finished the season with 142/9.5/5, also intercepting two passes and breaking up eight more. Junior numbers included 110 tackles after 138 as a sophomore.
Pos: Fierce, productive linebacker who makes a lot of plays in the box. Explosive in run defense and sacrifices his body to make the play. Instinctive, disciplined and quick to locate the ball. Effective in coverage between the numbers.
Neg: Undersized, and slow shedding blocks once engaged at the point. Does not display top speed to the sidelines.
Analysis: Very productive tackler on the small-school level, DiGiorgio could be a backup in a one-gap system
which protects its linebackers. Should be a special teams demon.
