Greg Powers Signing Day Evaluation: Aggressive and relentless linebacker who flies around the field. He has a good first step and is an active pass rusher on the blitz, but his biggest strength is defending the run. He fights off blocks and then chases. He has a high motor and always on the prowl. Sherod is perhaps at his best in pursuit, using his speed and quickness.
