As you can tell, the SEC has a plethora of athletic, playmaking linebackers and Frost is definitely on that list. Unlike the three previous prospects, Frost is a little bigger and more suited for middle linebacker duty.
Frost displays the physicality that is needed in Quinn’s defense. He is also a sound, reliable tackler and overall solid in pass coverage.
What Frost needs to improve is using his hands when it comes to engaging blockers. A key facet in linebacker play is to engage blockers and the ability to disengage. Frost was definitely productive with 240 total tackles and 17 TFLs while at Auburn.
