Scouting Report on LaDarius Owens

  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Looks like a big linebacker that is already physically mature. He has a similar body type to Alabama freshman linebacker Tana Patrick.
Needs Improvement: Needs to learn to play in space and develop instincts as an outside linebacker. This will mean turning his hips and dropping into pass coverage.
Most Impressive: He is very physical at the point of attack and does a nice job of diagnosing pass or run. Owens is also relentless in his pursuit of the football.
Conclusion: His nose for the ball and physical tools will take him a long way. If he can adjust to playing linebacker, he has the potential to be a multiple year starter with all-conference potential.
