Pos: 
Athletic three-down linebacker who comes off a disappointing season. Disciplined, instinctive and stays with the action. Strong, breaks down well and slides off blocks to get to the action. Fires upfield through gaps, dives around the field and works to make positive plays. Gets depth on pass drops and covers a good amount of area. Quickly locates the ball and does an outstanding job reading and diagnosing plays.
Neg: 
Average quickness and speed and does not play to his 40 time. Doesn't display an immediate change of direction or lateral speed.
Analysis: 
Connelly was graded as a potential second-day pick entering the season but watched his play level off. He has the size and speed to start at the next level but must get his game back on track and show improvement from his junior season.
