Draft Scout Eric Kendricks News
06/27/14 - UCLA's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 3. ILB Eric Kendricks, RS Senior...Between Eric, older brother Mychal (former LB at Cal, now starting for the Philadelphia Eagles) and father, Marvin (former RB at UCLA and in CFL), the Kendricks have been terrorizing Pac opponents for decades. Like Mychal, the No. 46th overall pick in 2012, Eric is instinctive, aggressive and a considerably more explosive hitter than his frame suggests. He closes quickly and with force, leading to some emphatic take-downs. He's very light on his feet, showing good agility, flexibility and balance to avoid would-be blockers when he rushing the quarterback. Kendricks' athleticism and awareness makes him effective in coverage, though he has just two interceptions in 28 career starts.
Kendricks led the Pac-12 with 150 tackles in 2012, his first full season as starter for the Bruins. It was the most tackles recorded by a UCLA defender since Jerry Robinson recorded a school-record 161 in 1978. Voted a team captain last year, Kendricks again led the team in tackles (106) despite the fact that he missed two games and was limited in a variety of others due to lingering shoulder and ankle issues. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
