Pos: 
Hard-charging, intense run-and-chase linebacker with solid measurables. Breaks down well, fluidly moves about the field and shows speed in any direction. Patient, instinctive and stays with the action. Gives effort against the run, shows the ability to hold his ground against blocks and plays strong football. Keeps the action in front of him, flows laterally to the play and fluidly moves in space. Crashes up the field and sacrifices his body to make the tackle.
Neg: 
Struggled on the outside of Stanford's 3-4 alignment last season. Slow to get off blocks and will be handled at the point.
Analysis: 
Despite a disappointing season, Alfieri gets the most from his ability and does not have mental lapses on the field. He's a traditional 4-3 linebacker who is best on the outside and could be a special-teams demon.
