Pos: 
Terrific front-seven player who possesses great upside. Tough and nasty. Instinctive and reads and diagnoses plays well. Technically sound, plays with outstanding balance and body control and shows the ability to bend off the edge. Quickly locates the ball, makes great use of his hands to protect himself and moves well laterally to string plays out to the flanks. Easily changes direction and immediately alters his angle of attack, plays to his 40 time and shows speed in every direction of the field. Displays closing burst, shows the ability to make plays in space and has a nonstop motor.
Neg: 
Lacks strength and bulk and struggles against offensive linemen. Can be engulfed at the point of attack. Lacks great first-step quickness out of a three-point stance.
Analysis: 
Crosby was a productive defender for Eastern Michigan the past two years and displayed consistent development. He added 20 pounds of muscle during predraft training and comes with a great upside. I presently project Crosby as a 3-4 outside linebacker but feel he can also line up with his hand in the dirt in certain situations.
