Wisconsin LB DeAndre Levy has told Scout.com that the Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears were just a few of the teams that attended his personal Pro Day.

Unable to perform at his school's Pro Day due to a hamstring injury, Levy put on a good show on his special day for the teams who made the trip just to watch him work out.

According to one source, Levy ran the 40-yard dash in 4.50 seconds, completed the three-cone drill in 7.12 seconds and the short shuttle in 4.2 seconds. He also posted a vertical jump of 35.5" and a broad jump of 10'3".

Levy told Scout.com that at his school's Pro Day he spent time with a number of coaches, including the Arizona Cardinals linebackers coach. He said the Steelers, Cardinals, Chiefs, Dolphins and the Lions were just a few of the teams that held formal interviews with him at the Combine.

DeAndre Levy Draft Profile

Analysis

Positives: Very physical at the line, takes on fullbacks in the hole or tight ends on the edge to allow other players to make the tackle. ... Uses above-average arm length to effectively wrap up and form tackle in the open field. ... Has better straight-line speed and quickness than most college strong-side linebackers. ... Handles coverage responsibilities against tight ends and running backs in the flat. ... Smart, assignment-sure defensive leader.

Negatives: A bit stiff in the hips, works best in a straight line. ... Backpedal is tall and choppy. ... Not explosive closing on the ball. ... Gets caught up in traffic too much. ... Does not use his hands or speed to beat linemen when blitzing, although he can dispose of running backs. ... Lines up in a stack, but must learn how to play as a nine-technique.

Pojection 5th round pick

I hate those pros/cons things. First they make you want them, then they talk you out of it.

I read more into the pros then the cons....... Every player coming out of college will have cons..... I want to know what are the good things a player can do and does it fit our scheme.
