Overview:

Weatherly has nice size to play 3-4 outside linebacker. He was a tackling machine at Vanderbilt, and he put up god sack numbers there. He gets good pressure on the quarterback, and is just an all around play maker on defense. On the other hand, he does not have the best speed, he is not that great of a cover linebacker, he has issues with fast backs, and he tends to get stuffed by big offensive lineman at the line of scrimmage at times. With that said, I expect Weatherly to be a mid round pick.
