Scouting Report on LaDarius Owens

  • Lateral PursuitBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Looks like a big linebacker that is already physically mature. He has a similar body type to Alabama freshman linebacker Tana Patrick.
Needs Improvement: Needs to learn to play in space and develop instincts as an outside linebacker. This will mean turning his hips and dropping into pass coverage.
Most Impressive: He is very physical at the point of attack and does a nice job of diagnosing pass or run. Owens is also relentless in his pursuit of the football.
Conclusion: His nose for the ball and physical tools will take him a long way. If he can adjust to playing linebacker, he has the potential to be a multiple year starter with all-conference potential.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
