2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about EVAN WEAVER: California, 6021 237 4.76. Two-year starter, Spokane, WA. Was a first-team All-America and first-team All-Pac 12 while leading the nation in tackles with 182. Extreme high motor player who overcomes some athletic deficiency with instincts and effort. Deliberate in his read and react but once he “sees it” is usually precise in fits at inside gaps. Not fooled by misdirection. Plays downhill and attacks blocks with a powerful punch to separate. Sheds well on the move and does not stay blocked. Has little trouble escaping from second level blockers. Feels the block while staying on track to find the ball. Has alley to alley range and runs through tackles with form and finish. Hustles in pursuit and is around the ball a lot. Disciplined in pass drops and pattern recognition. Consistently passes off shallow crossers to stay in the throwing lane on intermediate routes. Sees the quarterback and threats. Solid reactions with the ball in the air. Often used as a blitzer with mixed results as he lacks a quick escape move when confronted by an interior lineman. Will play high at times giving him some trouble changing direction and playing in space. Occasionally under runs the play working to the perimeter. Lacks man cover skill and struggles to redirect on route breaks. Rarely used to play man as he was usually blitzing when Cal played Cover 1. Weaver is a fringe athlete but his motor and tackling ability should make him a core special teams player. Projects as a backup/special teams player who could find a two down starting role in the right scheme. Senior Bowl notes: Showed intensity and physical play. Attacked blocks with knee bend and was quick to strike and shed. Kept working to the ball and had range in pursuit. Changes direction well in a short space. Solid zone drops and reactions. Not the best when matched up to a speed back. 2019 stats: 182 T, 11 TFL, 2.5 sacks, 3 PBU, 5 QBH, 3 FF. Edge speed:left 2.26, right 2.18. OSR:15/17. Fifth/sixth round. (A-31 5/8, H-9 5/8, BP-15, SS-4.21).
