Pos: 
Undersized, quick pursuit linebacker with a solid game. Athletic, instinctive and quickly locates ball carriers. Fast to every area of the field, shows good change of direction and sells out to make plays. Breaks down well and possesses an explosive closing burst and good overall quickness. Easily gets outside the numbers in pursuit of the action, covers a lot of area on the field and wraps up tackling. Gets depth on pass drops and shows good awareness in coverage.
Neg: 
Inefficient and occasionally overpursues the action. Easily knocked from his angle of attack by the initial block. Not a stout tackler.
Analysis: 
Idowu is a quick, explosive run-and-chase linebacker with size limitations. Underrated in scouting circles, he offers possibilities on the inside of a 3-4 alignment or potentially as a weakside linebacker in a traditional scheme. Idowu also comes with a special-teams mentality, which is added value.
