Pos: 
Explosive linebacker who plays with a nasty disposition. Quick, very explosive and breaks down well. Remains disciplined with assignments, fluidly moves in reverse and gets depth on pass drops. Quickly picks up coverage assignments, breaks down well and plays faster than his 40 time. Fires up the field, sells out on the blitz and gives effort against the run. Effectively quarterbacks the defense.
Neg: 
Has size limitations and gets engulfed at the point. May be tapped out physically.
Analysis: 
Sheffield is an underrated linebacker who could back up at the next level and play special teams.
