Table inside Article
Magee is sneakily one of the more instinctual and intelligent linebackers in the class with his ability to command the second level and quickly identify action at the line of scrimmage. His high athleticism makes him difficult to get around when he’s in pursuit. While he may be on the smaller side at 6-foot-1, 227 pounds, Magee competes with an edge that allows him to play bigger than he is. However, that size does still get highlighted when offensive linemen break into the second level to block downfield.

OVERVIEW: It happens more often than not that when you see a linebacker with the instincts that Magee possesses, you find a history either at the college or high school level of them playing quarterback, and that was the case for Magee at Dover High School in Delaware. His offensive background translates to the defensive side of the ball. He reads and reacts better than most defenders in the class, which makes up for a lack in size. His fifth and final season at Temple saw him account for 80 tackles and 14 for loss on his way to being named a Second-Team All-AAC member.

COMPARISON: Kwon Alexander
