Summer Scouting Notes: LB James Skalski, Clemson

Skalski isn’t the most athletic player on the field. In fact, his speed looks a little suspect… Strong upper body that he uses to dominate off of blocks and launching with hit power into tackles… Excellent tackler. Hits well, wraps up, has good strength to be effective. Pursuit angles are great. Skalski is very rarely out of position when chasing down a player… Skalski is a strong space defender… Incredibly football smart. Recognizes concepts faster than most. Has an excellent understanding of opposing offenses. Clearly puts in the film work… Skalski has unnaturally good instincts – ridiculously effective at his assignments and reading the play. Constantly takes people out of the play.
