Tremendous instincts. Great play recognition and awareness. High-end intellect to overcome athletic limitations. Very good eye discipline. Has no problems taking on blockers head on. Reliable and technically sound tackler when he’s able to square up a ball-carrier. Very effective as an inside blitzer. Reads the quarterback’s eyes and will break on the ball in zone coverage. Tough and physical. Always gives top-tier effort. Self-proclaimed “head hunter” on special teams. High character and leadership. NFL bloodlines (son of two-time Super Bowl champion tight end Terry Orr and brother of former All-Pro linebacker Zach Orr).



Doesn’t have the desired size for the position. Lacks sideline-to-sideline speed. Average change-of-direction skills. Much better going downhill than reacting. Needs to be better breaking down to tackle in space. Will struggle to get off second-level blocks. Concerns about ability in man coverage.

Zach Orr



Overall, Orr lacks the prototype athleticism for an NFL linebacker, but I think he is simply a natural football player that will win with instincts and effort to potentially carve out a career path similar to his brother by working his way from special teams ace to standout starter. It will likely be a mistake for teams to let him slip or even go undrafted.
