Bio: 
Two-year starter who started five games as a senior and made 30 tackles (two for loss) with two sacks and three pass breakups. Earned First Team All-Pac-12 honors and recorded 67 tackles (three for loss) and one forced fumble in 2016 before suffering a season-ending leg injury. Named Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 and led Washington with 95 tackles (nine for loss) while adding 1.5 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles and six PBUs as a sophomore.
Pos: 
One-time highly rated linebacker who struggled with a multitude of issues over the past year and a half. Constantly around the action, plays smart, tough football and makes positive plays at the top of his game. Explosive, athletic and has a quick closing burst. Effectively reads and anticipates the action, takes proper angles and moves well laterally. Redirects to the ball carrier and is a sure-handed tackler who wraps up at the point of attack. Fast up the field, sells out on the blitz and disrupts the action.
Neg: 
Suffered a devastating leg injury late in his junior season in 2016. Suspended after a DUI charge as a senior and started just five games in 2017. Looked slow and unresponsive and lacked quickness last year.
Analysis: 
Entering the 2017 campaign, Victor was graded as a possible first-round pick throughout the scouting community despite his devastating leg injury from the prior year. He came into the season overweight and undisciplined and looked unmotivated, and he moves towards the draft as a late-round pick as a result. Victor has shown he can play at the next level in the past but must get his game, and his life, back on track.
