Scouting Report
Kaddu earned all-Pac-12 first team honors as the strong-side linebacker for conference champion Oregon, finishing second on the team with 6.5 sacks. He's known for his incredible athleticism, which he showcased with a 34-inch vertical leap at the NFL scouting combine while also turning in a broad jump of 9 feet, 11 inches to tie for 11th among linebackers. There are no remaining signs of a foot problem that forced Kaddu to sit out of spring practice before a 2010 junior season in which he started all 13 games for a team that played for the BCS title. Kaddu, who was selected to play in the East-West Shrine Game, is clearly taking his preparation seriously by working out in Florida at the IMG Academy. Notably, Kaddu did not run in the 40-yard dash at the combine. His improved pass rushing ability during a senior season in which he occasionally lined up as a defensive end in Oregon's blitzing schemes showed he can have success in a 3-4 alignment, although he seems more suited to a 4-3 at the pro level. Kaddu's father was a former African heavyweight boxing champion out of Uganda. The son has earned a reputation as a fighter on the football field and seems to have worked his way into the middle rounds of the draft.
