Summer Scouting Notes: OFF-LB Baylon Spector, Clemson

Spector is very fast and reacts very quickly. Fastest player in this defense. Tends to rely on his speed too much and will over-commit when taking angles or setting zones… Has excellent athletic ability but doesn’t control it as well as you’d like to see. Footwork and movement in general is raw and clumsy… Flashes the ability to use brute power to get off of blocks and make the tackle… When he gets in position, Spector is an excellent tackler. Very intense football player… Pursuit angles aren’t great. Sometimes relies too much on his speed and tries to undercut the play. Works well through traffic to stay with a run, especially when moving to the boundary on a stretch… Shows good timing and understanding of how to get into the backfield through a pass protection set… Doesn’t have great pass-rushing ability, struggles to shed blocks. Does bring speed and can outrun linemen with a good release… Spector tends to be too aggressive when setting in his zone and will abandon his post if he thinks there isn’t someone there… Spector generally recognizes the play concept and moves to position himself against it… Will catch on sometimes, but tends to be too aggressive… Doesn’t always feel the play well, seems to be missing some feel for the play.
