Round 7 #226 - Ty Summers LB
« on: April 27, 2019, 02:34:28 PM »

Ty Summers
Outside linebacker
HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6-1.5 / 241 | 40: 4.51 | DRAFT YR:2019

Incredibly athletic linebacker who must start to translate his natural skills into football production. Aggressive, relatively instinctive and quickly locates the ball carrier. Remains disciplined with assignments, breaks down well and uses his hands to protect himself. Rarely off his feet and plays with balance. Gets tremendous depth on pass drops, covers a great amount of area on the field and goes sideline to sideline to make plays. Fires up the field between gaps to defend the run, squares into ball carriers and wraps up tackling. Very effective in space.

Marginal production the past two seasons. Not forceful on the blitz.

Summers is one of the better athletes at the linebacker position in this year’s draft but must pick up his production on the field. He possesses the instincts and intensity for the next level and is a late-round pick who could eventually develop into a Sunday starter.

ST demon in the making? After all, why not draft for guys who have upside, and can contribute on game day immediately?

Right on ricky....he will be a ST demon. My problem with him is if Patterson couldn't get him to be more instintive... I'm not sure who can. He could have a light go on and figure it out, but until then he would be a solid ST guy.
