2011 NFL Draft Profile: Nick Bellore - CMU, LB

Height: 6-1

Weight: 245lbs

PROS: Good size for the linebacker position. Great production in his 4-year career netting 90+ tackles per season. Excels in short zone coverage and reads the quarterback.  Blitzes well and can get through blockers. Very tough and durable player who plays with a high motor.

CONS: Doesn’t tackle well in the open field and his lack of speed severely limits his coverage abilities. Most teams would like him a little taller for the 3-4 inside linebacker position. Plays stiff and will struggle in coverage deeper down the football field.
