2013 NFL Draft - SI.com
Mauti is one of the frustrating players to write-up because his career has been so affected by knee injuries, but when healthy he was a highly productive player. If I gave Mauti a grade strictly for his on field play, I would likely give him a late first / high second round grade because he is truly an outsanding linebacker when healthy. Amazingly, before being injured in 2012, Mauti displayed the quickness, agility, flexibility and top speed that you would never expect for a player who had torn the ACL in each knee. While many college inside linebackers excel playing the run between the tackles, Mauti is different because he has sideline range versus the run and is excellent playing off the ball in coverage. Overall, because of the injuries I do not expect Mauti will be drafted before the late rounds of the Draft, but if he proves he is able to stay healthy (Which is a long shot as most players who struggle with injuries in college usually struggle to stay healthy in the NFL) he has what it takes to be a high end starting linebacker in the NFL. He fits best as a middle linebacker in a 43 scheme, but could also effectively play inside linebacker in a 34 defense or an outside linebacker spot in a 43 scheme.

Site has positives/negatives about the player. Injury concerns are huge (3 torn ACLs), but when healthy he's a first/second round talent. Low risk considering where he was taken, and it looks like (IF he can stay healthy) he might be a great steal for a MLB. That's a huge IF, though.
