Scouting Report on Chris Strong

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Strong is a big linebacker who could end up growing into a defensive end. His strength is his size and ability to take on blockers at the point of attack. Strong is a sure tackler and very active from sideline to sideline. He pursues well and is a good athlete. He has surprising quickness for a bigger ‘backer and is adequate in coverage although he’s best moving forward. He’s a solid blitzer who uses power and strength to get after the quarterback. He reads the play well and can shed blockers, although he’s usually quick enough to get around them. He’s a pure middle linebacker who’s strength is in run support, but again he could end up playing with his hand down in college.
