Leighton Vander Esch Scouting report

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com: "Vander Esch is a loose-hipped, instinctive linebacker who played in 2017 like he had a GPS tracker on the football. His production totals against both the run and pass are rare for being a first-year starter and with a frame that is primed for more muscle, his NFL ceiling is high. Vander Esch might benefit from a reduced role his rookie season while he improves his play strength and becomes more skilled at taking on blocks."

Jeff Legwold of ESPN: "He had 12 tackles, including three for loss, a sack and forced a fumble in his final college game to close out a 141-tackle season. Vander Esch has the frame defensive coordinators covet and the instincts to be a walk-in starter for most NFL defenses."
