EMMANUAL BEAL | School: Oklahoma | Position: ILB | Height: 6002 | Weight: 231 | Hand: 0918 | Arm: 3258 | Wingspan: 7868 | Forty: 4.58 (1.59) | Bench: 12 | Vertical: 35” | Broad: 9-8 | Shuttle: 4.79 | L-drill: 7.27 | Age: 25 | Agent: Johnny Mayes
Wore No.41 at HUB Football CAMP (April/2021). A well-conditioned athlete who possesses the quickness to cover running backs and able to cover tight end… while he owns great speed he tends to shuffle his feet, rather than plant and pivot when changing direction; as a result, it can make it difficult for him to recover when beat. Needs to get his head/hips turned around quicker on a more consistent basis. Nice low stance, adequate backpedal… demonstrates natural instincts and anticipates well. Currently working out five days a week with former Ohio State strength coach Eric Lichter… includes Benny Snell (Steelers) and Jalyn Holmes (Vikings). Has gained about 10 pounds since coming out in 2018; would benefit from dropping five pounds. A former JUCO transfer, Beal is still a developing prospect who has room to be coached up… he’ll need to latch on as a special-teamer first before he can work his way into the linebacker rotation.
