Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about NICK DELUCA: North Dakota State, 6025 251 4.87. Three-year starter from Omaha, NE. A smart, instinctive and fundamentally sound player. Initial read and react is with precision shuffle steps working downhill or laterally. Quick to fit inside gaps. Shows peripheral vision seeing angle blocks and working through them as he pursues. Shows tackle to tackle range with ability to close to the alley with ball side leverage. Solid zone skill and awareness with the ability to see the quarterback and receivers. Shows proper spacing in zones closing voids and reacting to the throw. Attacks blocks with his hands and shows above average power. Will get upright on a block at times and will lock up. Average change of direction but he will struggle to redirect off a block. Speed may not be enough for an every-down linebacker. Does not have enough agility to consistently match up with a back out of the backfield. Injury history is a concern but he has played through them at times. Has been very productive on special teams and he should find a spot on an NFL roster even if only as a two down linebacker. Projects to a 3-4 or 4-3 as a Mike. 2017 stats: 74 T, 10.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 2 QBH, 3 FF, 1 INT. Edge speed:left 1.86, right 1.83. OSR:19/ 22. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 3/4, H-10 1/4, BP-18, SS-4.23).
