Mike Mohamed scouting report

Mike Mohamed ILB California
Ht: 6’3″

Wt: 239

Productive three-year starter who also played as a freshman. Good overall size. Has the height to match up well with tight ends in coverage. A smart football player; rarely caught out of position. Patient; waits for plays to develop before committing to an angle.
Athleticism is nothing special. Once a lineman locks onto him he struggles to shed blocks. Won’t be productive at getting into the backfield consistently.
Mohamed doesn’t do anything great, but he also has very few glaring flaws. Given his inability to consistently get into the backfield I think he’s better suited to play inside in a 4-3 scheme. He just lacks the athleticism to be consistently productive in a 3-4 scheme. He’s a solid player but the upside is limited. He’ll probably never be a Pro Bowl linebacker, but should definitely be a productive backup and special teams contributor and may sneak into a starting lineup down the road.
