Mike Mohamed Scouting Report
Mike Mohamed
Mike Mohamed - California (HT: 6-2⅞ - WT: 241)
Combine 40: N/A - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 8 of 30

Positives: Very solid overall production in four years at Cal (340 tackles, seven sacks, four forced fumbles, seven interceptions)... Good height and bulk, although could add a little muscle mass in upper body... Runs well with the football, looks a lot like a tight end after intercepting passes... Is a good wrap-up tackler, does not deliver a lot of big blows, but tackles low and usually does not miss in close quarters... Does not give up on plays, puts effort into every play and work hard to get to the ball carrier... Is a cerebral football player, does not often get out of position and understands his responsibilities on the field... Has pretty good hands, but must be in good position to make big plays in coverage... Durability is not a concern, has not experienced any major injuries and has played in 50 games for Cal... Very intelligent person and it shows on the football field, should be a heady player at the next level... Motor is not a concern, plays hard on every down.

Negatives: Has some very inconsistent games, recorded 14+ tackles three times in 2010, but fewer than seven tackles on five occasions... Instincts appear to be below average, is not a natural playmaker and lacks the ability to be an ultra-disruptive linebacker... Is not fast for the position... Is not a unique athlete, and is below average in pass coverage, plays with stiff hips and slow change-of-direction ability... Lacks strength to fight through tough blocks and traffic at the line, needs to bulk up to be an effective gap filler in the NFL... Does not drive feet very well when tackling, wraps up but tends to simply drag ball carriers to the ground instead of using legs to drive through them... Is not a pass rusher by any means, has some experience blitzing, but will be better suited as a run stopper on first and second down.
