2012 NFL Mock Draft: Bobby Wagner

Publish date:


Bobby routinely tracks players all over the field. If there’s only one player chasing a running back on a 60+ yard run, it’s probably Wagner and usually he’s staying stride for stride with them. He’s at his best when he’s just allowed to attack the back field. He has a great swim move and he can consistently apply pressure when allowed to. Great leaping ability and good hands. He’ll disrupt passing lanes if in position.


Wagner doesn’t have ideal technique for tackling. He tends to attack high and he misses on easy tackles due to this. He doesn’t have the strength to battle in the trenches and he’s hesitant at times. Bobby struggles in coverage and open space and is easily shook on routes.


  • OLB, Utah State, Sr.
  • Ht: 6’0
  • Wt: 241
  • 40 time: 4.70


He’s a raw talent that could develop into a good player. He has some ability of playing linebacker but to see him play at a high level a team would just ask him to fire off the line and get after the quarterback. As time progresses and he adjusts and takes to NFL coaching, then whatever team drafted him, could develop him to drop into coverage a little more. He’s going to be a developmental guy early on, though.
