Ben Humphreys, OLB, Duke #34

6021, 225, 4.64


Notes: From Newport Beach, CA. Majoring in public policy studies while minoring in economics and pursuing a certificate in markets and management. His mother played college volleyball at Stanford and has been inducted into the school's Athletics Hall of Fame. His older sister also followed in their mother's footsteps.

Positives: Solid character and background. Hard worker. Very dedicated to the game. Good workout numbers with good strength for his size. High football IQ. Smart and instinctive. Quick to diagnose. Flies to the ball. Good speed, range and pursuit. Plays with passion, focus and intensity. Non-stop motor, with effective spin move to disengage and play in space. Active and productive. Good feel on pass defense. Understands zone coverages and plays within the defensive scheme. Seldom out of position.

Negatives: Lacks top size. Gets washed out at the point of attack at times. Avoids more than he takes on. Not always a strong, consistent tackler.

Summary: Fits as a weak-side linebacker in a 4-3 defense, where he can play off the ball and flow to the action as opposed to stacking at the line of scrimmage.
