Explanation of Player Grading System


The Breakdown

Sturdivant is one of several talented defenders for North Carolina this season. However, he may be the most aggressive of the bunch. Quan relies on his instincts more than his linebacker corps team mate, Bruce Carter, but he doesn’t possess the strength that Carter does. Quan may see that he’ll fit in best as a 3-4 inside backer in the NFL and not a true “mike” backer.
