Great sideline to sideline speed
Very adapt at attacking line of scrimmage and getting tackles for loss
Improving Coverage linebacker
Great wrap up tackler
Thunderous hits for his size
3 year starter
Makes a ton of splash plays
Can get engulfed by lineman
Does not shed blockers well
Still needs refinement in coverage
Sometimes over pursues
Player Comparison: Lance Briggs
Round Projection: Late 3rd or early 4th round
Danny Trevathan is an overlooked prospect. Playing on a mediocre team without much help he has had a great career. He might fall due to the fact he can only play in a 4-3 defense at WLB. That being said much like Briggs he impacts the game as a tackler, blitzer, and in coverage. Teams should not sleep on this kid. Teams like the Colts, Bengals, Browns, Giants, Eagles, Lions, and Saints could use him.
There’s been speculation about potentially moving Danny to safety at the NFL level because of his lack of size, but that he’ll have to drop some weight if he does make that position switch. Danny has played for some very underachieving Kentucky teams in his career, but that never stopped him from going out onto the field and giving it 110% every single down. He’ll be a steal for the Broncos.
