Overview:

Jonas Mouton is an under-the-radar prospect at LB. He is a good athlete for his size and I love the way he plays. He looks to initiate contact and is a very aggressive LB. While this leads to some great plays and big hits, it also means sometimes he will take himself out of the play. He needs to play with more discipline and tone down some of the aggression. I think he can be a solid reserve LB at the next level, who has the capability of developing into a starter.
