TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline thinks UNC senior "bandit" Norkeithus Otis projects to the NFL as a linebacker.
Otis has played a lot of defensive line for the Tar Heels, but Pauline sees him as a 'backer. "I do like Norkeithus Otis, a college defensive end who’ll get consideration at outside linebacker in the NFL," Pauline wrote. "Otis is relatively athletic and makes plays in pursuit as well as up the field." Otis in a unique prospect who did a little bit of everything last year, collecting 49 tackles -- 13 for loss -- 7.5 sacks, nine quarterback hurries, two forced fumbles, three pass breakups and an interception. Otis' skill set will be desired in the spring because the NFL desires faster linebackers to drop into coverage in this pass-happy era. Pauline currently sees him as a Rds. 6-7 prospect.
