  Draft Scout by Conference

  04/24/21 - ILB Jack CampbellrJr/2024, Iowa

  Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Iowa linebackers coach Seth Wallace said there's separation between his starting trio of Jack Campbell, Seth Benson and Jestin Jacobs and the rest of his 12-man linebacker group. Of those 12, only Campbell and Benson have more than 100 game reps on defense. So, without a great deal of depth, Wallace is looking to foster as much positional flexibility with Campbell, Benson and Jacobs as possible. How? Wallace said that, during certain parts of practice, he'll make his three linebackers rotate positions after each play so they can develop more versatile skills and see the field from different perspectives. His goal is to create three linebackers who can all adjust their game, depending on the opponent's scheme.

Campbell recorded 29 tackles, 3.5 solo tackles for loss and an interception last year. A four-star Cedar Falls product who picked the Hawkeyes over Iowa State in the 2019 class, Campbell has long been seen as a future star on Iowa's defense. He was named to the Register's All-Iowa Elite Team as a junior and senior, which is a rare feat. Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz has previously described Campbell as the type of player with an "extra heartbeat," something he also said about Josey Jewell. "There's something extra there," Wallace said. "You just turn on the tape and watch the way that he practices. It's clear that there is a motor, there's a little bit of something tugging at his heart to get to the ball. We're anxious to get him back out there hopefully in a normal year and get back at it and see what he can do." - Iowa City Press-Citizen
