With the 149th pick of the OM Draft, the St. Louis Rams select:

A.J. Klein, ILB, Iowa State
6’1”, 250, 4.6, 225=20




STRENGTHS
AJ Klein has good size, strength and speed to play as an inside linebacker in a 3-4 defense or as a middle linebacker in a 4-3 defense. He has excellent leadership skills and is a coach on the field making the players around him better. He does a very good job as a zone cover linebacker, making the correct drops and watching to see the crossing routes coming and anticipating making the hit. He is a head up, wrap up, squeeze and drive tackler and does an excellent job meeting big offensive guards and tackles, shedding and making tackles. AJ shows on film to have a good burst to the ball. I believe he will play faster than he times because of his football intelligence and instincts. He takes good angles and has the speed to makes tackles from the middle of the field to the sidelines. This kid is a quality football player and the type of player all teams need to make the playoffs. He is a coach on the field who will be a core player and fan favorite. If AJ is in a defense at the next level that allows him to flow to the play uninhibited, he will impact big time just as Jonathan Vilma did for the Jets when he was first drafted.... only smarter.
