Mario Harvey Scouting Report
Mario Harvey
Mario Harvey - Marshall (HT: 6-0 - WT: 250)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 10 of 30

Positives: Has good bulk for the position, carries weight well... Shows a fairly consistent motor, makes a lot of second-effort tackles... Does a good job taking on blockers and holding his ground, does a pretty good job of keeping a free hand while maintaining position and leverage... Is a tough, physical player with a nose for the football, likes contact and is not afraid to take on blockers or larger backs... Is experienced with blitzing from multiple positions, recorded 20 career sacks at Marshall... Is a good wrap-up tackler, recorded 419 tackles in four seasons in college... Does a good job reading plays and reacting, flows well with running plays... Is an excellent run stuffer, looks like a first and second down WLB in the NFL... Does a good job scraping through traffic, does not get bottled up behind the line, has pretty good vision when moving laterally... Is surprisingly agile in the backpedal when dropping into coverage... Is an extremely hard worker and coachable player.

Negatives: Is a little short for the inside linebacker position... Does not appear to be very fast in short bursts or especially quick, could possibly benefit from losing some bulk to increase speed... Looks a little stiff, flexibility and change-of-direction abilities are below average... Does not look great in coverage, has limited range... Can be overaggressive when taking on blockers and takes himself out of plays on occasion... Does not fit very well in a cover two system because of height and lack of elite coverage skills.
