Follett OLB California #56
|Plays with great intensity. Tremendously
productive in Cal's 3-4 defense as a senior. Adequate speed. Very reliable tackler.
A hard hitter. Shows the ability to consistently get into the backfield and make
plays. Has a knack for forcing turnovers.|
have the natural physical abilities to make a smooth transition into the NFL.
Has found success by outworking and out-hustling his opponents; that doesn't always
translate into NFL success. Missed time in 2007 with a neck injury. Not a great
athlete. Limited experience in coverage.|
|Follett is a boom-or-bust
prospect. He was very productive at Cal, but physically, he just doesn't look
like an NFL linebacker. He could turn into an All-Pro, or he could flame out after
a couple years. At the very least, his intensity and work ethic should allow for
him to become a productive special teams player at the next level.|
