2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DONTAVIUS RUSSELL: Auburn, 6026 319 5.15. Four year starter from Carrollton, GA. Third-team All-SEC. Played in 52 games with 49 starts and collected 154 career tackles. Strong at the point of attack. A glass eater and grass grabber. Eats up space in the middle of a defense. Does all the garbage jobs like keeping the linebackers clean, taking on double teams, pushing the pocket, occupying blockers, and stuffing the run. Thick and strong enough to take on all blocks. More powerful than explosive. Gives a good days work when he’s on the field. Not overly quick and sometimes is late off the ball. Presses the pocket to get the quarterback off their spot. Not a quick twitch guy. More deliberate. Projects to be a two down run and goal-line player. Moves good for a big man. Has some lateral quickness and skill. Projects as a 4-3 interior player or a five technique in a three man front. 2018 stats: 36 T, 6 TFL, 1.5 sacks. OSR:17/21. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32, H-9 1/2, BP-24, 10-1.83).
