Mychal Kendricks, linebacker, California (6-0, 240)
Kendricks is as violent and explosive a striker as any linebacker in the draft. He loves to attack downhill, runs well sideline to sideline and can create pressure as a blitzer. He’s a bit short, but plays with natural leverage and should be able to see starting time from day one.
NFL Ceiling: Productive NFL starter
NFL Floor: Fringe NFL starter
