Tremendous nose for the football, plays the game with passion and vigor that is unmatched

NDT Scouting ranked Neville Hewitt the outside linebacker from Marshall University as its 4th best Linebacker prospect and 60th best overall prospect in their latest Big Board. His highlight reel can be seen here:

Hewitt is the first player in Marshall’s history to be named Conference USA’s Player of the Year and was also named to the first team Conference USA. At 6-2, 230 pounds, Hewitt has been described as having a “tremendous nose for the ball, great closing speed, gets downhill fast, and is excellent on pass rush and coverage”. This was backed up by his pro day results, as all of his numbers were better than the average for players at his position who participated at the recent NFL Combine. Hewitt ran an impressive 4.65 40-yard dash, impressed with a 37-inch vertical jump and 9’11” broad jump.

NDT Scouting has given Neville Hewitt an overall evaluation grade of 7.49 (out of 10), which equates to a 3rd Round Value and projects Hewitt can be picked as high as the 2nd round. Despite his undersized frame, he ranks favorably in terms of leadership, athleticism, production and overall talent. “Hewitt has the football IQ to develop into a NFL star, he possesses unique skill sets at linebacker” , say David Schuman.

“Neville would be a great addition to any team looking for a playmaker in their defense”, stated Hewitt’s agent Dave Schuman, of Inspired Athletes Agency. “His combination of talent and intangibles will make him an asset to any NFL team and it’s no surprise he is quickly rising up draft boards.”

Schuman recently founded Inspired Athletes, a division of his company NUC Sports with partner Dan Smith, also an NFLPA certified agent.
