From "Su'a Cravens performs at the 2016 NFL Combine":

"The biggest thing that jumps out when looking at Cravens' Combine performance are his measurables. As a linebacker, he's obviously small for either 3-4 or 4-3 defenses.

Tagged as a "hybrid linebacker," Cravens participated in most of the linebacker drills and looked very good doing so. His movement to the ball and fluidity in his hips scream playmaker.

However, with his size, it is a bit difficult to want to a draft a linebacker who also seemingly lacks athleticism on paper. Cravens' bench press reps, broad jump and vertical results were among the bottom percentile and not running 40-yard dash added more insult to injury.

When you turn on the tape on Cravens, his Combine results become irrelevant. He is a natural playmaker and plays an overly aggressive style regardless of what position he is in. With a switch to safety towards to the end of his time at USC, Cravens is open to a position change in the NFL and will take part in secondary drills at USC's Pro Day."
