Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about SHAUN DION HAMILTON: Alabama, 5116 228 4.69. Two-year starter from Montgomery, AL. The instinctive linebacker had 64 tackles including nine for loss and two sacks in 2016. Strong powerful inside run stuffer who benefited from playing with a great Alabama defense. Good initial read and react with a downhill shuffle. Plays under control and does a good job fitting inside gaps. Attacks blocks with his hands and is quick to shed. Normally plays at a good pad level but occasionally gets knocked upright and washed out of a play. Instinctive enough to avoid blocks and find creases to get to the ball. Does a good job leveraging the block and the ball in pursuit. Takes good angles and has fundamental tackling ability. Runs well and can chase from sideline to sideline. Solid in both man and zone coverage. Has enough speed to cover a tight end or back and shows shadow and mirror ability. Takes good drops in zone coverage and has quick route recognition. Does a good job seeing the quarterback and receivers. Shows a sudden break on the throw and a burst to close. Has good blitz skill using his gap ability to quickly get up field. Tore an ACL versus Florida during the SEC championship game in 2016 and suffered a broken patella versus LSU last season. 2017 stats: 40 T, 5.5 TFL, 2.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 2 QBH, 1 FF. Medical exclusion at Combine, right knee. Sixth/seventh round. (A-31, H- 10 1/4, BP-20, SS-DNP).
