- 2015 Senior Bowl, Thursday: Orchard is technically listed as an outside linebacker for the North, which is good because the rest of the unit hasn't been nearly as impressive. Washington's Hau'oli Kikaha, like Orchard, is much better rushing the passer than he is in coverage, where his lack of balance and fluidity are readily apparent. Hayes Pullard tipped a pass in the end zone that resulted in an interception by fellow Trojan Josh Shaw, but other than this, his greatest contribution has been as an explosive downhill hitter in run support.
While full-on tackling is not allowed in practice, Pullard has consistently rocked fullbacks and pulling guards on his way to "tapping" the ball-carrier. This is the area in which Cincinnati's Leff Luc has excelled, as well, though the muscle-bound 6-foot, 263 pounder has struggled moving laterally and may not possess the straight-line speed to beat backs to the edge. Each look like traditional two-down Mike linebackers at the next level and Day Three prospects at that. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
