Pos: 
Athletic linebacker prospect who is developing into a three-down defender. Fast in every direction of the field, covers a lot of area and displays outstanding sideline-to-sideline range. Forceful up the field, quickly collapses outside-in to defend the run and wraps up tackling. Works his hands to protect himself. Gets great depth on pass drops and shows the ability to cover slot receivers. Possesses an explosive closing burst.
Neg: 
Hesitant or late to react. Really needs to polish his instincts.
Analysis: 
Tranquill entered the season as a potential late-round choice, but he really took his game to the next level in 2018 and is a scheme-versatile linebacker who can play all three downs. He must sharpen his instincts, but Tranquill comes with tremendous upside and has the skills to develop into a starter at the next level.
