Pos: 
Tough, nasty linebacker who is best against the run. Remains disciplined with assignments, effectively makes the defensive calls and works hard to get involved in the action. Forceful up the field and effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Explosive against the run. Breaks down well, squares into ball carriers and disrupts the action.
Neg: 
Works hard in coverage but not fluid and really does not get depth on drops. Average quickness. Often a half-step late to the action.
Analysis: 
Alaka is a hard-hitting defender who plays with a nasty attitude but is best in the box or up the field. He will be a solid addition on the inside of a 3-4 alignment and comes with a special-teams mentality.
