Pos: 
Physical, instinctive linebacker who must return from injury. Quick to read and diagnose, breaks down well and takes good angles to the action. Efficient, works hard to get involved in the action and quickly collapses outside-in to defend the run. Shows speed in pursuit, has an aggressive style and willingly throws his pads around the action. Does not bite on ball fakes and remains disciplined with coverage assignments.
Neg: 
Lacks bulk and strength and gets easily disrupted from the action by a single blocker. Swallowed up in the trash. Was never fast prior to his injury.
Analysis: 
Al-Shaair is a run-and-chase linebacker with average measurables and timed speed. He must show he hasn’t lost his prior form after the injury and play well on special teams to have any chance to make a next-level roster.
