Scouting Report on Anthony Sarao

  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Very developed upper body and excellent lower body structure. He physically is reminiscent of Penn State freshman Mike Hull.
Needs Improvement: Can Sarao add enough size to hold up against the run? Right now the only definite linebacker position he can project at is weakside, this hurts his versatility as a defender.
Most Impressive: Possesses excellent hips and coverage skills for a linebacker. He can turn and run with almost anybody in the country. Sarao has enough power and speed to jam receivers or backs at the line of scrimmage and take them off their intended routes. His speed is exceptional for a linebacker.
Conclusion: This fast, hard-hitting headhunter is ideal for coverage teams and could really do some damage to return men. He will most likely redshirt while trying to add the size needed to hold up on every down. If the old adage that speed kills holds true, Sarao can expect to have an excellent career.
