Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MICAH KISER: Virginia, 6003 238 4.69. Three-year starter and Campbell Trophy award winner from Baltimore, MD. Three straight years of leading the ACC in tackles per game is sure to gain notice. Has been a rock in the middle of the Virginia defense ever since he was put into the starting lineup in 2015. The two-time All-America and three-time All-ACC selection might be a little short on athletic ability and potential, but is head and shoulders above most linebackers when it comes to instincts and a nose for the ball. At his best between the tackles immediately following the snap. His first 2-3 steps are almost always in the right direction and it gains him initial positional advantages on blockers. Excels at taking on blocks and shedding them. Gets his powerful hands inside with a low pad level and finds the ball carrier in traffic. An excellent wrap up tackler who hits with enough force to jar the ball loose on contact. He is comfortable in space, as he was matched up against receivers and tight ends up the seam. The athleticism struggles mainly have to do with long speed and explosion. Has a hard time adjusting his weight laterally and it could put him a step behind the action against NFL speed. There is some awkward movement to him in space. Seems like an ideal fit for a team looking to fill the two down inside linebacker role, preferably in a 3-4 where his play in space isn’t needed as often. He will bring top notch intangibles and football instincts to the table. Players with this kind of production matched with this kind of football IQ should never be overlooked. 2017 stats: 145 T, 9.5 TFL, 5 sacks, 4 PBU, 2 QBH. Edge speed:left 1.97, right 2.11. OSR:12/22. Fourth/fifth round. (A- 32, H-9 3/8, BP-DNP, SS-4.24).
