Lanier has a good frame and tested out well with a 9’1″ broad jump and a 31″ vertical leap at our combine during his sophomore offseason. The 2021 linebacker did well at a GACA camp ranking out as one of the top 3 linebackers. Lanier had 80 tackles and 8 tackles for loss while also posting 5.5 sacks on the year too – not bad for a junior season with no prior varsity exp. He has continued to improve, and really getting his first year as a starting OLB, Lanier has looked pretty good. His above average lateral quickness to go along with hustle allows for him to make his fair share of plays. Long arms, makes tough shoe string tackles. Needs to continue to pack on the weight, he is still very light, and colleges are looking at bigger OLB at this point. Has some upside for sure.
