Tough, productive college linebacker who projects to the outside of a 3-4 alignment. Explosive, forces his way up the field and disrupts the action behind the line of scrimmage. Chases the action hard, displays ability in pursuit and effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Competes hard, holds his ground against opposing offensive linemen and easily brings larger ball carriers down at the point of attack. Instinctive, shows speed pursuing laterally and stays with assignments. Flashes athleticism and easily moves to every direction of the field.
Primarily used in the box or up the field. Stiff moving in reverse. Marginally effective against the pass. Lacks great build for a 3-4 outside linebacker.
Biegel has been a force on the Wisconsin defense since his sophomore season and showed his talents during Senior Bowl week. He’s a tough, strong defender with solid instincts and even better growth potential. If he falls out of the third round, Biegel could be one of the draft’s bigger steals as he could break into the starting lineup and see extensive playing time as a rookie in the NFL.
