2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about FRED WARNER: BYU, 6033 236 4.65. Three year starter from San Marcos, CA. Has experience as a nickel and hybrid linebacker. Played both in and out of the box. Good initial read and react with an even lateral and downhill shuffle. Quick with his hands to ward off a block on the move. Smooth change of direction with good fits at inside and outside gaps. Makes plays in space with fundamental tackling skill. Quick to get into his drop with good depth in zone coverage. Aware of multiple receivers in the underneath zones with ability to see the quarterback and the threats. Uses his length to get in the throwing lane underneath intermediate routes. Closes the voids and reacts with a quick burst on the throw. Shows match-up skill versus slot receivers. Mirrors cuts well and has enough speed to stay with a vertical route. Will get engulfed at times by a bigger blocker. Not as good in the box as he is in space. Too easily blocked at times. Some hesitation in backside pursuit. Inconsistent cutting off backside running lanes. Will run around a block at times getting him out of position. Will have to get stronger to play every down. Has played well on coverage teams and has sub package potential while a team figures out if he can be an every-down player. 2017 stats: 87 T, 9 TFL, 1 sack, 5 PBU, 1 FF, 1 INT. Edge speed:left 1.72, right 2.01. OSR:7/22. Third/fourth round. (A-32, H-9 3/4, BP-21, SS-4.28).
