"Curry does not look as thick on film as he did at the combine, but that's not too surprising. He still has a very good build for a 4-3 OLB, especially in Seattle's scheme and he has the natural athleticism to go with it. He's probably at his body's peak weight, but nothing wrong with that - you don't need or want him any bigger. What's really interesting is you don't see guys with his size at linebacker in Seattle, so his style of play is different from what we're used to.
"He's very good at beating the TE on run plays, uses his hands and strength well. He's also very good at getting through trash when working inside, has good balance and doesn't get knocked off his blocks. As a blitzer, he looked very good and I think he could contribute in this area. Unfortunately, he isn't perfect either. He was mediocre in zone coverage (barely saw him in man, I've heard he's good in man) and while he backpedals quickly, he doesn't have a good feel for it. He's a pretty good tackler but sometimes goes high when he should go low - strong enough to usually get the job done though.
"What bothers me the most is he doesn't appear to be a real read/react or instinctive guy. Whilst everything I've heard suggests he is very smart and a great person, on the field he doesn't show great intelligence or instincts. He bites too often on play action and seems both slow and sometimes incorrect on reads. He's a good player and with his work ethic and intelligence it isn't like his flaws are unfixable. But they're there. In some ways he reminds me of Jason Smith at a less crucial position. Both have impressive natural skills and are high character/intellect guys. But both should have a better understanding of their position, at least to be top prospects. I'm not sure either is a must-have guy in a better class. But they're the best at their position in this class and it's easy to look at the film and see why they could be successful."
