Pos: 
Tough, instinctive linebacker who gets the most from his ability. Quickly picks up assignments, remains disciplined and gives great effort. Diagnoses plays before they unfold, fluidly flows to the action and quickly locates the ball. Does a great job making the defensive calls in the middle of the field. Fires up the field to fill gaps and gives effort against the run. Squares and wraps up tackling.
Neg: 
Undersized, struggles to get off blocks and gets washed up in the trash. Lacks foot speed, which will cause mismatches against faster tight ends.
Analysis: 
Holcomb is a hard-working player who relies on instincts and intensity to make plays. He lacks great measurables, but his approach to the game and ability to diagnose could help him find a roster spot as a backup.
