An athletic ball of clay, Trevin Wallace was ranked 14th on Bruce Feldman's "Freaks List." Wallace is one of the younger prospects in the draft (turned 21 in Feb) and has lots of upside. He's an explosive back that has the ability to cover backs and tight ends as an outside backer.

Right now Wallace is much more of a "see and chase" backer, and he needs development in the cerebral part of the game. The speed and agility can lead to missed tackles and being out of position on certain plays.

With Willie Gay now in New Orleans, the Chiefs have a clear role for Wallace. There are numerous similarities between the two players and Wallace could have the advantage of coming into a set linebacker room to develop. Wallace can be an impact special teams player in year one with his athleticism and develop into a rotational backer who can: blitz, cover, and support the run.
