David Vabora, OLB, Idaho

Vabora commenced his college career in 2003 starting three games. In 2004, he started six of eleven games, making 43 tackles (32 of them unassisted). He forced three fumbles. During his junior season, he led the Western Athletic Conference with 134 tackles (101 solo), with two sacks and two forced fumbles. He was selected to the All-WAC first team. In 2007, he led his team and was fifth in the nation with an impressive average of 11.6 tackles per game. Vabora is a very productive player in college. He has a good football frame with great speed for the position (4.51-40), but he does have room to add bulk. He is a good athlete, who moves well through traffic and can change direction quickly. He will close fast on the ball carrier and is a good zone coverage linebacker. Vabora usually takes good angles in pursuit and has demonstrated the ability to blitz consistently. However, he lacks strength and can be overpowered, tending to get worn down during games. He runs around locks and is just not physical enough at this point. He lacks consistency and has missed some open field tackles. Vabora is a better college linebacker than a pro prospect. He does posses very good speed for the position and better than average pass cover skills, but he lacks bulk. He needs to be more physical at the point. He can help a team on special teams and spot play at OLB. Vabora could be drafted late in the sixth or early in the seventh round.
