Quan Sturdivant is a nice LB prospect because he can play inside and outside, although would probably be a better fit outside. He has great range because of his athleticism and he has good instincts. I want to see him be more physical though. He prefers to run around blocks than take them head on, he’s not an explosive tackler, and he just doesn’t attack the LOS like you would want to see. He can do this and I have seen him play tough before, but too often he’s content just sitting back and letting the play come to him instead of attacking.
