Mike Mohamed

Mike Mohamed scouting report

Mike Mohamed ILB California
Ht: 6’3″

Wt: 239

Strengths:
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.
Weaknesses:
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.
Comments:
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.
