Bio: 
First-year starter who earned Third Team All-CAA honors and made 65 tackles (four for loss) with four sacks as a senior. Made six starts and posted 96 tackles (7.5 for loss) and one sack in 2016. Started three games as a sophomore and recorded 52 tackles and one sack.
Pos: 
Forceful and hard-working linebacker with limited upside. Keeps the action in front of him, remains disciplined with assignments and plays with a nasty attitude. Explosive, fluid changing direction and fires up the field on the blitz. Breaks down well and effectively protects himself with his hands.
Neg: 
Possesses just a short burst of speed that he cannot sustain. Average ball skills and ability in coverage.
Analysis: 
Hereford was a terrific college linebacker but has size and speed limitations. He plays with a special-teams mentality, which could be to his advantage at the next level.
