Stephone Anthony is a 6’3″ 243 pound inside linebacker out of Clemson that uses his size very well in the box. He managed 150 tackles, 105 assists, 9.5 sacks, three interceptions, and six forced fumbles in his four year college career at Clemson.

Anthony has the size to be a successful inside linebacker in the NFL and his tackling ability is his strongest trait, but he is very raw and will need to be a student of the game to really succeed in the league.

If the KC Chiefs drafted him they would have to expect some growing pains early on in his development but he could develop into a very capable inside linebacker.

"Carries an ideal frame for an inside ‘backer, with thickness through the middle and broad shoulders, and he exhibits the explosive downhill first step and feisty demeanor to be a strong contributor in the box. He diagnoses early and does a good job of putting himself in position to make plays between the tackles against the run, and will hold his own when asked to drop back in short zone and cover the middle against the pass. -Courtesy of Derek Stephens and Rob Rang of CBS Sports"

Anthony is the third best inside linebacker, and 72nd best overall prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft according to CBS Sports.

With a late second round/early third round grade the KC Chiefs should consider him if he falls to them with their first pick in the third round which is the 80th overall pick.
