Adibi showed his big play ability early on during his freshman year, when he had 25 tackles, 4.5 for loss, two sacks, and a pick in reserve action. As a sophomore, he had 69 tackles, seven for loss, three sacks, and two interceptions on the season. He continued his all around playmaking as a junior last year, finishing the year with 82 tackles, 6.5 for loss, three sacks and three interceptions earning 2nd team All ACC honors in the process. Adibi led the team in tackles as a senior, finishing with 108 tackles, 12 for loss, three sacks, and two interceptions on the year.
Adibi is an excellent weakside linebacker prospect. He is a good athlete, with the quickness and athleticism to play in space, and the speed to run plays down sideline to sideline. He shows excellent awareness in coverage and has a nose for the football, whether it be in coverage or getting to the ball carrier.
Size is the only physical issue holding Adibi back. He has average size, and it limits him to the weakside. He doesn’t have the bulk to hold up at the point of attack, and can be slowed by blockers once they engage him.
Adibi is a big play linebacker who will be in high demand in April. He is not going to overpower blockers, but he is an excellent fit for a team needing a playmaking weakside linebacker.
