Bio: 
Three-year starter who made 53 tackles (3.5 for loss) through seven games in 2016 before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Finished second on the team and 11th in the SEC with 93 tackles as a junior in 2015, adding nine tackles for loss and three pass breakups. Posted 114 tackles (3.5 for loss) and one forced fumble as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Hard-working two-down defender coming off a knee injury. Breaks down well, uses his hands to protect himself and does a terrific job diagnosing plays. Takes good angles to the action, plays with a nasty attitude and attacks ball carriers. Fires up the field defending the run, throws his body around the action and wraps up tackling. Remains disciplined with assignments.
Neg: 
Does not play to his 40 time. Lacks speed to the flanks and cannot cut off the corners. Does not get depth on pass drops.
Analysis: 
Best in the box, Scherer is a two-down defender who must now rebound from the knee injury which cut his senior season short.
