Default Stevenson Sylvester LB- Utah

PROS
Sylvester is 21 years old, 6′2 1/8, 232 lbs with 33 ¼ inch arms and 10 ¼  inch hands.  He ran a 4.63 forty at the combine.  Sylvester is a knowledgeable, experienced, and competitive linebacker with a high motor.  He is a consistent sideline-to-sideline athlete with above average read and react skills.  He has the ability to stop a runner in his tracks and pursue a tight end and back in the open field.  Excellent edge and gap rusher and will make the play.  Has the ability to stack and shed and pursue in traffic.  He is an impressive wrap up tackler and can lay the big hit.  He really excels in big games, appears to love the bright lights.  Sylvester was invited to the 2010 NFL combine and the 2010 East West Shrine Game.  He is a four-year starter, two-year team captain, unanimously selected to the 2009 MWC First Team All Conference, 2009 Poinsettia Bowl Defensive MVP, and MWC Second Team All Conference in 2008.  He is a high character prospect and is leader on and off the field.
 
CONS
Sylvester’s Pro Day numbers are not impressive, but these numbers are not indicative of his play on the field.  He will need to learn better techniques to shed blockers and fight through traffic.  He is underweight, but has continued to add weight through his college career; added ten pounds prior to 2008 season, ten pounds prior to the 2009 season, and has added seven pounds since the East West Shrine Game.  
 
OVERALL
Sylvester is an excellent outside linebacker with a lot of upside.   Can play inside or in coverage and makes plays all over the field. Will need to be coached up a little in using his hands to shed blockers and technique to get to the quarterback. Bottom line this kid is a Football player an has been a consistant play maker over his career.

I've liked him ever since someone on this board earlier this year called him a first round talent and I looked him up, good LB at the college level with some explosiveness to his game, he can blitz well and he can hit harder than his size would suggest.

Do you know if the Eagles are or have brought him in for a visit?

I was one of the guys looking at him early after the draft last year. He has a lot of potential, and if the Eagles would, for whatever reason, wait until the mid-late rounds to draft a LB, I'd love if they brought him in. I also would like to add that he plays a little overaggressive at times, and leaves cutback lanes open in the running game under his cons, but he is an under the radar prospect I like.

I'm not sure if the Eagles have brought him in. I can see where you see his over aggressiveness. But I think that is something that can be easily fixed. Talented guy I feel He is a real sleeper in the draft.

A lot of young LBs are overaggressive, and honestly, if I'm drafting similar LB prospects, prospect A being overly aggressive, and B being underagressive, I'll draft the overaggressive one before the underaggressive one. You need to have some level of aggressiveness at LB, and with coaching and maturity, that overagressiveness can become controlled aggression as they learn their responsibilities and settle in. I see overaggressiveness as one of those negatives that can actually be a positive.
