Kevin Pierre-Louis, Making our Defense Even Better?

When the Seahawks picked Pierre-Louis in the fourth round my mind instantly flashed back to the East-West Shrine game where Pierre-Louis was the star of the show. He showed almost every great ability that makes a linebacker special. He can tackle, break blocks, find the football easily, good knee bend, good reaction time, and amazing speed.

Once I went back to watch the film on him, I was even more impressed. He can get to the quarterback with such ease and cause disruption on every play. The quickness he possess is fun to go back and watch, his knack for being anywhere the football's at is something you cannot teach a prospect.

While his pass rushing ability is some of the best in this draft out of the linebacker position, often times he gets so caught up in pass rushing that he gets faked by the playaction often.

Many people seem to believe that he lacks the ability to cover defenders, but I see a very good pass coverage player when I watch him on film. He has the occasional mess up, but the upside is through the roof in pass and run coverage.

Having this guy coming off the bench in certain situations makes this linebacker rotation even more deadly. He will offer a great rushing threat in blitzes and possibly in the future become an every down linebacker. He has the skills to do everything a pro bowl player does, and has the drive and desire to prove it.
