Devin Lloyd Strengths

  • Can play any of the linebacker positions
  • Very physical and aggressive
  • Can be a good pass rusher when need be
  • Eyes are always on the ball

Devin Lloyd is an absolute freak of nature. He is the exact type of player the New England Patriots are looking for, young and very athletic who will be all over the field on every play. The physical and aggressiveness of Lloyd would give New England the youth injection it needs for what has been a slow and aging linebacker core.

The most intriguing part of it is his talent of being a pass rusher in some schemes if need be, sort of like a Josh Uche or Matt Judon, a position that has become very valuable in todays league, could pay huge dividends for Devin Lloyd.

Devin Lloyd Weaknesses

  • Some inconsistencies with blocking scheme recognition.
  • Heavy Feet in Coverage, hips do not explode as well as expected
  • Can lack body control from time to time

For me, there are not many weaknesses for Devin Lloyd, and really those are just nitpicking by me. If he can just tweak these things just slightly, Lloyd could be an absolute beast and could turn into one of the best in the NFL.

The scheme recognition is worrisome, but it can be easily fixed, he is still young and has a lot to learn, as does every one of these prospects, but he should learn quickly in the right system and with the right scheme.

Making the Case for Devin Lloyd

(Comparison: CJ Mosely)

Devin Lloyd could be special and is one of the top players on my big board when it comes top players, and he is in my top 10 of my defensive players. He is the perfect defensive piece in a Bill Belichick defense, nimble, young and athletic and someone who can be all over the field and play any linebacking position.

This class is full of such good and young athletic linebackers. All of who are fast as hell, and tough as hell. If the Patriots are all in on going blowing up the linebacking core, then one of the three top Linebackers is the way to go, and Devin Lloyd being my favorite of the three of them,
