Campbell was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the fourth round of 2015. He played two seasons with the Browns, making nine total starts for them. He was waived and placed on injured reserve late in the season of 2016. Last year, Campbell was signed to the Houston Texans practice squad.
Trusted and respected four-year starter. Aggressive tendencies near the football. Springs into his tackles with authority, and looks to rip the ball out of ball carrier’s arms with his unusually large hands. Created four forced fumbles and had three interceptions in just 56 percent of the team’s defensive snaps. Does his job in run support, playing with leverage against perimeter runs and containment on backside. Coming from high to low, can mirror running back movement to shadow and hit. Adequate range and man coverage skills underneath. Praised by NFL scouts for his leadership and personal character. Plays on kick coverage and hands team against onside kicks.
Diagnostic skills are still a work in progress. Can take too long to make the initial read on play-action and drop into coverage. Plays through a straw. Has issues with dual focus on quarterback and his coverage responsibilities. Will lose track of his coverage, leading to big plays. Average closing burst. Might not have the positional instincts, eye discipline or ball skills necessary to play anywhere but near the box. Missed four games this season dealing with nagging injuries. A high number of missed tackles in 2013 worth noting.
