Recardo Wimbush

LB | (6-0, 215, 4.85) | Georgia Tech
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Has started every game since he enrolled in 1999, when he led the team in tackles with 99. Also broke up two passes and intercepted a pass. In 2000, he had 94-5-1 with three sacks. Had a team-best 96 tackles in '01, when he had five stops for loss. Had 83 tackles, including six for loss, and five passes broken up in '02. Did not intercept a pass in '01 or '02. Had one sack in '01 and two in '02.

Positives: Has started every game his entire career. Very tough, competitive and durable. Plays bigger than his size and quicker than his timed speed.

Negatives: Lacks size, size potential, timed speed and long speed. Struggles to get up to 215-pound playing weight and is often closer to 200 pounds. Is just average in coverage.

Summary: A very good, reliable college player who may be too small and slow for the NFL. But if he really stands out on special teams, he could defy the odds and earn a chance at safety down the road.
