Summer Scouting Notes: OFF-LB Merlin Robertson, Arizona State

Incredible body control! Hips are very fluid and allow him to change directions with ease… Good upper body strength. Controls his tackle well… Good tackler. Doesn’t allow many ball carriers to get by… Takes good pursuit angles to the football. Routinely is in place to make big plays… Shows some ability as a space defender. Really would like to see him more aggressive when pursuing the ball carrier to limit the gain better… Excellent man coverage player. Drops well, stays in the play. Fluid hips doesn’t allow him to get beat very often.
