Colts Have Visit Scheduled with UCLA OLB Aaron Wallace
According to DraftInsider.net’s Tony Pauline, the Indianapolis Colts have a visit scheduled with UCLA outside linebacker Aaron Wallace:
As a senior for the Bruins, Wallace recorded 92 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, and 7 sacks in 13 games en route to earning All-Pac 12 Honorable Mention.
The 6’3″, 240 pound Wallace is the son of Aaron Wallace Sr., who was drafted in the 2nd round of the 1990 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Raiders as a linebacker. The elder Wallace played 8 seasons in the NFL for the Los Angeles (Oakland) Raiders, recording 155 career tackles and 21 sacks respectively.
In that regard, the younger Wallace is a “chip off the old block”–possessing exceptional linebacker skills himself (via his NFL.com Draft Profile):
"SOURCES TELL US“Completely different player from the BYU game to the USC game. He has some talent but he’s like a sophomore in terms of his linebacker instincts. I don’t know if that will change with experience or not.” — NFC West scout"
"BOTTOM LINEWallace is an ascending prospect with the twitch, athleticism and power to become an eventual starter as a 3-4 outside linebacker. However, despite his growth as a player this season, he is still in a developmental phase and may take some seasoning before he is ready to become a contributor on the NFL level."
"“Linebacker Aaron Wallace — 6-2 3/8, 242 — ran the 40 in 4.59 and 4.57 seconds. He had a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-10 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.27 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.35 seconds. He performed 25 reps on the bench press. Wallace had a good pro day workout and could be a priority free-agent pickup following the draft.”"
