Scouting Report on Stephone Anthony

by Barry Every - 11/02/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Anthony has a thick upper body giving him the appearance of a defensive end instead of a linebacker. He has a great powerbase and is similar to Alabama linebacker Nico Johnson.
Needs Improvement: Would like to see him pick up more speed and explode into the ballcarrier. Anthony needs to work on getting off blocks.
Most Impressive: He does a great job of wrapping up while tackling and running his feet after contact. His overall athleticism allows him the versatility to play all three linebacker positions.
Conclusion: Will definitely be looked at for early help on coverage teams. Look for him to slowly work his way into meaningful time on the defensive side of the ball. He has the makeup to become an all-conference performer.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
