Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Routinely communicates with his teammates both before the snap while making adjustments, and during the play as the play develops. His ability to recognize plays and read the offense allows him to position himself in the hole to either engage blockers and plug it or make the stop. Navigates the chaos near the line of scrimmage with ease and rarely gets caught up in the shuffle of bodies. Uses his hands well in conjunction with his strength to shed blockers and free himself to make a play on the ball carrier. His quick feet and change of direction allow him plant and explode downhill once he has made his read. Displays good coverage ability in zone and is constantly patrolling his assigned zone, picking up any receiver that enters his area of the field. In man coverage he displays the physicality required to match up well against TEs, as well as the lateral quickness to cover RBs coming out of the backfield. When utilized as a blitzer he shows an adequate motor when pursuing to the QB, and can generate pressure with both pure speed and good hand use to keep opponents off of him. He does not display much of an overall plan as a blitzer, and generally only has his first move planned out with no backup plan should it fail.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Devin Lloyd played in every possible game either on special teams or as a contributor on defense after redshirting his freshman year. He made 47 career appearances with 32 starts for the Utes. He aligned primarily as an off ball backer in the box, and would occasionally line up on the edge as a stand up end. Was Utah's leading tackler every season he was a full time starter, and his production increased with each season. He was a three-time All-Pac-12 selection, was the conference's DPOY in 2021, and was a two-time Butkus Award finalist. Scheme versatile off-ball linebacker you win because of who can contribute immediately at the next level as a three-down starter.
