Josh Bynes scouting report

Josh Bynes ILB Auburn
Ht: 6’1″

Wt: 240

Strengths:
Three-year starter. Underrated coverage linebacker. Plays faster than his timed speed and is fluid enough to turn and run with most tight ends and running backs. Good ball skills; seven career interceptions. The type of linebacker that simply finds ways to put himself in position to make plays. A leader on the field.
Weaknesses:
Does everything well but nothing great. May be a player that has already maxed out his potential.
Comments:
Bynes projects as a backup at the next level, mainly because he simply lacks the elite physical tools to develop into anything more. That said, he is fundamentally sound and a smart football player making him ideal for a backup/special teams role. He won’t be a high pick, but he’ll find a way to make an impact in the league.
