Strengths 

Britt was the leader of the Auburn defense. As the mike, he called plays and was tasked with recognizing and calling out what the offense was doing. And by all accounts, he not only had a great presnap football IQ, he was also a great leader and teammate. He's solid in the pass game, specifically in zone and he doesn't miss many tackles once he gets his hands on someone.

Weaknessess

Britt is and undersized linebacker. Not only his Britt small (at only 6'0), he's not particuarly fast. He doesn't really have the speed to keep up with anyone in coverage, especially at the next level. Because of his small stature and lack of speed, he struggles to get off blockers who make it to the second level, and he struggles at times to get his hands on quicker offensive players. Not only does he not excel at any aspect of the position, calling him average may be a stretch.

Big Picture

Because of his IQ and leadership ability, KJ Britt should be a late day 3 pick. At the very least, he'll make a team as an undrafted free agent. He has the IQ and motor to be a productive special teams player and a solid backup. However, because of his size, speed, and general lack of athletic ability, Britt's ceiling will never be more than as a backup. Teams looking to draft him will be teams looking for depth or special teams help.
