2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about BAYLON SPECTOR:
Clemson, 6011 233 4.60. Two-year starter, Calhoun, GA. Two-time Honorable Mention All-ACC. Undersized linebacker; possesses solid height but fringe weight, short arm length with huge hands on a muscular torso and thin lower body. Regularly puts himself in position to make plays. Reads and reacts quickly to initial key. Solid to scrape across the line-of-scrimmage to meet running backs in the gap. Quick to come downhill in the trenches and engage with power and good pad level. Solid zone cover skill, collisions receivers crossing his zone and redirects to find the throwing lane. Leverages his zone in coverage using vision and processing speed. Shows notable acceleration in pursuit, and takes great angles to the ball. Lacks functional strength; struggles to anchor when engaged with offensive linemen versus run. Misses too many tackles due to strength and tackling form, leaves his feet and lunges too often. Looks stiff when dropping to landmark in zone coverage. Lacks agility and change of direction. Although he can win with acceleration in pursuit, needs to show more consistent effort to be a reliable sideline-to-sideline defender. As a blitzer, needs better use of hands and pass rush moves. Has special team and backup potential.
