Player Overview

A three-star recruit, Pierre-Louis committed to Boston College over offers from Stanford, Duke and Virginia, citing BC's academics as his deciding factor.

He stepped in from day one as a true freshman starter and teamed with Luke Kuechly to give the Eagles a dominant tackling tandem in 2010 and 2011.

Pierre-Louis set career-bests as a senior in 2013 with 108 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 6.0 sacks and his first career interception, earning All-ACC First Team honors.

He has some linebacker/safety 'tweener traits with his slender frame, but moves very well with the athleticism to cover a large area. Pierre-Louis has trouble disengaging and needs to stay healthy, but he is a sound tackler with NFL smarts - projects as a rangy run-and-chase weak-side linebacker and possible starter in the right scheme.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Athletic movement skills and stays light on his feet. Fluid in his drops with smooth body control. Smart and instinctive with excellent read/react quickness with an explosive first step.

Very active and always around the ball with terrific anticipation. Nose for the ball. Good eye use to avoid blocks in space while tacking the ballcarrier.

Reliable tackler and stays controlled through the process to finish. Strikes through his target. Aggressively takes on blocks and plays the game as if he were bigger and stronger than he is. Sound ball skills.

Versatile experience, even making impact plays on special teams. Very high football and off-field character with a productive resume as a four-year starter.

WEAKNESSES: Looks more like a safety with his marginal size and slight body type. Limited strength and growth potential to add much more bulk.

Too easily eliminated by blockers, lacking the power to quickly shed. Flows with the action and loses back-side contain or gets lost in the traffic, struggling to keep himself clean in a crowd. Plays too high and needs to show better bend and pad level to improve his base and technique as a tackler.

Would like to see more of a sense of urgency on every snap. Strong durability concerns with his lack of size and needs to stay healthy for a full season. Missed a handful of games the past few seasons due to injury.
