Table inside Article
A strong feel for attacking the backfield and filling running lanes, Eichenberg was a highly productive tackler with his ability to find the ball and rally to the ball carrier. His run-stopping ability could serve a team well in the second level. Eichenberg’s movement ability limits him as a straight-line runner into run lanes. His lateral movement and ability to change direction displays a stiff skill set that he brings out of the second level. As a result, his coverage potential is mostly limited to zone responsibilities.

OVERVIEW: A two-time captain for Ryan Day's program at Ohio State, Eichenberg was a tackling machine in his time with the Buckeyes as he accounted for 192 tackles in his final two seasons in Columbus. He also holds the Rose Bowl record with 17 tackles. One of the older linebacker prospects in the class, Eichenberg played five seasons at Ohio State before entering the draft. His experience in defending the run could help him become a day-one contributor for whatever team drafts him and puts him in the second level.
