2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Josh Kaddu, OLB, Oregon
He can play standing up off the edge, but is not yet a great pass rusher. He needs to improve his ability to play with a good pad level and stay under his opponent when being blocked. He could afford to bulk up and still has room on his frame to grow another 10 pounds of muscle. In coverage, he's not ready yet. Still falls back on his athleticism to run around the field and doesn't take great pursuit angles. He can play cleanly through his hips, but he often opens them up and takes himself out of position.
In order to take the next step, he needs to use his hands better to disengage from blockers in his pass rush. As for his coverage problems, it is a matter of better understanding the game and understanding his role in the defense, rather than playing like he's the only man on the field.
