Scouting Report: Sean Weatherspoon

November 21, 2008

Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Mizzou

Strengths: Decent size but can be overmatched by other Linebackers … Drops back into coverage very, very well … Has good speed … Doesn’t hit hard, but is a reliable tackler … Has good awareness … Can beat blockers easily … REALLY productive … Can fit into either a 4-3 or if he bulked up a bit, a 3-4 … A very hard worker … Is a solid team leader. 

broncosbarWeaknesses: Needs to bulk up for the next level … He is not especially strong and doesn’t hit very hard … Has yet to play with a weak defense around him … Jack of all trades but master of none? … Is missing some tackling form.

broncosbarOverall: Sean Weatherspoon is from Mizzou which I am a huge fan of, so I am a bit bias. That said, Weatherspoon is an excellent talent. A team that is looking for a versatile Outside Linebacker, who could play either Strong Side or Weak Side, will highly value Sean Weatherspoon. He has some question marks around him, but a lot of talent to make up for them.
