Just because you don’t get invited to the NFL Scouting Combine doesn’t mean you have no shot at getting drafted. Indiana’s Matt Mayberry received no invite, but is hoping to hear his name called on draft weekend.
This past season Mayberry led the team with 108 total tackles, was second on the team with 11 tackles for loss, had 5.5 sacks, and grabbed three interceptions. He is a solid all-around linebacker who has good instincts and pursuit skills. He is also versatile; he can play inside in a 3-4 or outside in a 4-3 as a weak side linebacker.
“Before the pro day I was mainly hearing from 4-3 teams. But after the pro day, now that teams have seen my speed, I have heard from a number of 3-4 teams,” said Mayberry.
He’s hearing from more teams because of that
