Koron Crump, OLB, Arizona State #4

6021, 222, 4.67

Notes: From St. Louis, MO. Began his college career at Fort Scott Community College (KS) where he played mostly defensive end. Tallied 46 tackles, 10 sacks and 2 FF as a freshman in 2014. Recorded 54 tackles, 16.5 TFL, 11 sacks and an NJCAA leading 6 forced fumbles in 2015. Enrolled at ASU in January 2016. Recorded 37 tackles, 10.5 TFL, 9 sacks, 1 INT (returned 59 yards), 3 FF and 3 FR in 2016. Posted 13 tackles and 4 sacks in less than 3 full games, before suffering a torn ACL that knocked him out for the rest of 2017. He received a medical hardship waiver and was cleared by the NCAA to return again in 2018.

Positives: Very good athlete with excellent range and closing speed. Makes plays all over the field. Shows natural pass-rush skills. Can drop into coverage. Avoids blocks and gets in on a lot of tackles. Has been a gunner on the punt team and should contribute on special teams.

Negatives: Lacks size and bulk at the point of attack. Needs to be protected and play off the ball to be most effective.

Summary: Solid nickel-linebacker prospect who fits nicely as a weak-side linebacker in some schemes.
