Better-than-Average Chance to Make NFL Roster
By Lance Zierlein
Poling's production, athletic testing and ability to potentially handle some coverage duties could make him a late Day 3 selection. He unleashes his true speed when he's chasing down tackles from behind, but needs to play to that same speed when he's attacking near the line of scrimmage. Poling has some holes in his game, but he has the ability to become a special teams player with backup linebacker potential.
Posted elite athletic testing numbers on-par with the best LB testing at the Combine. Ran a 4.58 with a 38-inch vertical leap and a 10-foot-7 broad jump. Has big hands and above average upper body strength. Plays with good knee bend. Tackle machine in high school and has carried that over for four years at Ohio. Impressive production included 43.5 career tackles for loss, 18 sacks, and 7 interceptions. Coaches love his football intelligence and he makes the defensive calls. Willing to strike with some force when squeezing his gap against pulling guards. Former high school safety with feel for where quarterback wants to go with the football. Gets early jumps into space in zone coverage and has ability to handle man coverage
Play speed doesn't always match his timed speed
Doesn't come downhill with fire-and-brimstone burst expected. Has opportunities to flash downhill into gaps for impact tackles, but will wait for runner at times. Posted more assists than solo tackles this season. Needs to learn to slip blockers rather than attacking them with his lead shoulder. Missed and broken tackle total are a little high. Too many off-balance tackle attempts on tape rather than landing with his chest
