The Cleveland Browns selected inside linebacker Hayes Pullard in the 7th round, 219th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Hayes Pullard is a tackling machine that led the Trojans with 95 tackles last season and was a team captain. The four-year starter led the team in tackles three consecutive years. Pullard is an undersized inside linebacker that stands at 6'1 236lbs but manages to be involved in every play.
Hayes has been the biggest contributor on USC's depth chart not missing one game in the past three seasons. Hayes is a talented player that dominated in the Pac-12 showing up in critical moments for USC. He is a blue chip linebacker that can learn a system quickly as well as learning his opponent even faster.
Pullard brought tenacity to the Trojans defense and played in many different defenses over his college career. The star linebacker has the capability to put others in better positions on the field and has shown very little doubt when it comes to being accountable.
Hayes Pullard is an every down backer that can also succeed on special teams and is capable of being a day one starter.
