How he fits:
Jaylen is a thumper who will be asked to flow downhill through the A and B gaps, take on fullbacks and interior linemen and play tough in the trash. Not a sideline-to-sidleine or a drop linebacker, Waters will bring the lumber through the middle.
Chances to play in 2015:
Everett Williams saw playing time as a true freshman last season but middle linebacker is not at all settled with Damien Wilson graduating and Cody Poock recovering from an ACL tear last spring. Waters may be a redshirt candidate but could also fit a special teams role and deep backup at MLB this season if the staff burns all of the redshirts (they've proven they'll burn all of the redshirts).
