Jack Campbell – NFL Rookie Draft Profile
Height – 6’5″
Weight – 246 pounds
The 2022 Butkus Award winner has been spectacular as a tackler and has shown that he has a skill set that can be used in any and all situations, whether stopping the run, rushing the passer, or covering the pass. He isn’t going to wow you on tape but is as solid as they come. While at Iowa, he received the following accolades:
Recipient of the William V. Campbell Trophy
Recipient of the Butkus Award as the top linebacker in the Nation
Academic All-Big Ten
Permanent Team Captain, defense
Roy Carver Most Valuable Player
Hayden Fry Award
Iron Hawk Award . . . Team Hustle Award, special teams
Unanimous Consensus All-America honors
First-team All-America by Walter Camp, Sporting News, Associated Press, FWAA, AFCA, and Phil Steele
Nagurski-Woodson Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year
Butkus-Fitzgerald Big Ten Linebacker of the Year
First-team All-Big Ten by league coaches and media
Semifinalists for the Rotary Lombardi Award
Semifinalists for Chuck Bednarik Award
He has a skill set that you can use in any situation, run, pass, coverage, doesn’t matter.
He is a very fluid athlete; post-combine, he was identified as the highest-graded athlete at the position, per NFL.com
Insane numbers as a tackler for the last two seasons.
He’s serviceable in coverage from what we see on tape, but with his athletic scores, coaching should help here.
When he gets blocked by pulling guards, he struggles at times to disengage.
He isn’t a “playmaker” in my eyes. Not a lot of BIG plays on film. Just tackle the guys in his area.
