Pos: 
Marginally athletic linebacker who is a terrific football player. Instinctive, effective with his hands and breaks down well. Fluid laterally and in space, shows great awareness and displays the ability to slide off blocks. Works to keep the action in front of him, displays a closing burst and wraps up tackling. Plays tough, physical football and throws his body around the field to make the stop. Effectively picks up coverage assignments, remains disciplined with assignments and shows ability in zone. Sells out on the blitz. Outstanding speical teams player.
Neg: 
Missed most of the 2017 season with a knee injury. Lacks great long speed. Struggles to make plays with his back to the ball.
Analysis: 
Strachan is one of the more underrated linebackers in this year’s draft, and although he may not be selected at any point during the draft, he's sure to be signed as a free agent. He offers potential as a backup linebacker and special teamer, and his instincts, intensity and ability to make positive plays give him an upper hand at the next level.
