08/08/2014 - Northwestern's NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. S Ibraheim Campbell, RS Senior...One of the most reliable players on the Wildcats' defense the last three seasons, Campbell has started 37 games in Evanston and has recorded 262 total tackles, 29 passes defended and eight interceptions. All four starters in the secondary return for Northwestern in 2014 and Campbell is the unquestioned leader of both the defensive backs and the entire defense.
He isn't the biggest or fastest player on the field, but he's one of the smartest and prides himself on playing assignment sound football with as few mistakes as possible. Campbell makes accurate reads and breaks down the action quickly to make plays, although he does have room to improve his functional strength and finishing ability when he's close to the ball. He is very well liked in the locker room and is a three-time All-Academic Big Ten player while majoring in economics. Campbell isn't elite in any one area on the football field, but is very steady and plays with a reliable presence that brings stability to the Northwestern defense. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
