Good aggression, but sometimes does too much (overpursues, goes for big hit)
Summary: Brandon Spikes is the prototypical 3-4 inside linebacker, but at this point I am not sold on him being the top-20 2010 NFL Draft pick most are hyping him as. He has a few technique flaws that really concern me, but he might improve those next season.
Player Comparison: E.J. Henderson Spikes and Henderson have outstanding tools against the run, but have weaknesses in zone.
