Pos: 
Small but hard-working linebacker who gets the most from his ability. Displays good change of direction, solid movement skills and quickness. Effectively reads and diagnoses the action, flows well laterally and shows ability in pursuit. Covers a good amount of area on the field and chases hard to make plays. Keeps the action in front of him, quickly reads and diagnoses and takes proper angles. Explosive run defender who fires up the field and drives his shoulders through ball carriers.
Neg: 
Plays to his 40 time and shows just average speed. Lacks height, which causes mismatches in coverage. Not stout at the point of attack.
Analysis: 
Atkinson gets the most from his ability but has marginal measurables for the next level. He's a backup interior linebacker who must earn his wage on special teams.
