#20: Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA: 89
Pros: Football IQ for this player is off the charts. He is around the ball all the time. Although undersized, he plays much bigger and is a tackling machine. He also wrap tackles like a wrestler. His zone coverage is fantastic.
Cons: At time Kendricks can be buried by large interior lineman due to being undersized, which is why he has a late first round grade despite his playmaking abilities at middle linebacker. Although his man coverage is generally good, he can get grabby at times which could result in penalties.
