Scouting Report

The first thing you notice about Madu when watching his film is his physicality. Not only is he an effective open field tackler who can make plays in run support at the line of scrimmage, but he is also sticky in coverage, whether he is playing man or zone. Madu contests every catch, using his speed and athleticism to stick close to the receiver and making the most of his length to reach in and break up passes. His habit of frequently using his hands in pass coverage may make him a target for pass interference penalties at the college level, so that is an area of his game he’ll need to refine. But his athleticism and physical style of play are a potent mix.
