LB Ronnie Sneed (Kentucky) - Undrafted Free Agent

This offseason, the Detroit Lions signed a pair of undrafted linebackers. The first one we are taking a look at with a scouting report is former Kentucky Wildcat Ronnie Sneed.

Experts' Opinions

National Football Post:

A thick, tightly wound inside linebacker prospect who isn't overly athletic sideline-to-sideline and plays slow. Doesn't read and react very quickly to the football inside, lacks ideal instincts and struggles to anticipate plays. Isn't real explosive on contact when asked to attack downhill. Fails to consistently generate a ton of force into contact, can be overwhelmed/sealed and fails to routinely disengage. Is an average tackler in tight areas, wraps well, but doesn't have a ton of snap and isn't going to make plays off his frame.

Stats

2009: 14 tackles

2010: 60 tackles, 1.5 sacks

2011: 71 tackles, 2 INT

Outlook for 2012

The Lions have quite a bit of depth at linebacker with them drafting Tahir Whitehead and Travis Lewis this year. With those two being added to starters Stephen Tulloch, DeAndre Levy and Justin Durant and backups Doug Hogue, Ashlee Palmer and Slade Norris, it seems unlikely that there will be room for Sneed. Then again, if Sneed comes in and performs well on special teams and shows more promise than some of the other young LBs, I suppose it's possible he could play his way onto the team. In all likelihood, though, his best shot at sticking around is by making the practice squad.

More scouting reports: Riley Reiff, Ryan Broyles, Dwight "Bill" Bentley, Ronnell Lewis, Tahir Whitehead, Chris Greenwood, Jonte Green, Travis Lewis, Kellen Moore, Stephfon Green, Troy Burrell, Patrick Edwards, Jared Karstetter, Wallace Miles, Alex Gottlieb, Austin Wells, Quinn Barham, Rodney Austin, Pat Boyle, J.C. Oram, Edmon McClam, Michael Cosgrove
