Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TONY FIELDS II: West Virginia, 6010 222 4.64. One-year starter, Las Vegas NV. Transferred from Arizona where he was a three-year starter. At West Virginia he played in the box and on the edge in the Mountaineers’ scheme. High energy player he is quick with read and is explosive getting downhill to fit inside gaps. Uses his hands with a quick punch to separate from blockers on the move. More powerful than his frame suggests. Chases with sideline to sideline range. He’s best in backside pursuit as ability to slip blocks keeps him on track to the ball. Gets through the wash to a lot of tackles. Consistently gets ball carriers on the ground although sometimes it’s a wrap tackle after almost overrunning. Has sudden change of direction skill and recovers well if out of position. Blitzes and stunts from the edge with a sense of urgency and closing burst. Second effort gets him to the ball consistently. In zone coverage takes a shuffle drop and has a knack for playing the seam while reading the quarterback. Sees threats and is quick to react with the ball in the air. Has made some plays getting in the throwing lane or separating a receiver from the ball. Solid mirror ability in a short space covering tight ends and backs man to man. Not as effective with the play right at him. If engaged with a powerful blocker there is some inconsistency escaping. His aggressiveness in pursuit can cause inconsistent angles on the perimeter. He has both under and over run at times. Lacks the bulk of a downhill thumper but his profile plays well for a modern Will linebacker. Has the potential to play three downs in the NFL. 2020 stats: 88 T, 4 TFL, 1 sack, 2 PBU, 4 QBH, 1 INT. Sixth/seventh round. (A-31 3/4, H-9, BP-17, SS-4.48, VJ-34).
