6'0" 243 lbs. Sounds like a shorter stocky guy that could plug up the middle if he has enough speed to run sideline to sideline.

Good scouting report on Gause here: https://www.bleedinggreennation.com/2016/5/24/11759282/eagles-rookie-profile-quentin-gause-rutgers-linebacker-profile-scouting-report-philadelphia

Like the size and positives seem to be about run stopping.  Other people can stop the pass.

This won?t appease fans who are uncomfortable with a rookie, but I like the idea of a competition between Jones, Wilson, and this newcomer.

Whether it?s at MLB or WIL, I have complete faith the JSK (who really looks the part, but I wasn?t comfortable with the idea of planning for Wild to be the other LB?r. Sounds like we?re planning for a competition among those spots. Good to see.

If doesn't matter if a rookie starts if he's a good player. Jones and Wilson are both heavier than Wild by about 15 - 20 lbs. Not too big to play WIL and about the same weight as JSK. Gause is nearly 30 lbs heavier than Wild and appears to be more in the competition at MLB.

So we could see Jones and Wilson getting reps at WIL or MLB.  That said we know we have 2 LB's that can play WIL. MLB is where we need a solution.

Essentially 4 players that could be that MLB guy at the moment.

Very good signing!

Here's his scouting report from when he was with the Broncos: https://www.milehighreport.com/2017/6/9/15768464/quentin-gause-broncos

Quote
Athletic, physical, tough and intelligent. Based on his highlight video above, he's a great tackler, fills his assignments well, is good in coverage and plays all over the field.

Gause also knows how to play special teams... Gause has a solid foundation to build on.

Seems like there's a ton of upside with him. Fingers crossed he's another pleasant surprise like Santos-Knox was last year.

2 - What are his weaknesses?

"Gause is very well-rounded but I?d have to say his weaknesses are his height and pass coverage. He is listed at 6-1 but measured in at 6-0 at his pro day. His pass coverage is iffy, and couldn?t always stay with running backs coming out of the backfield. He is not incredibly agile and fluid when he drops into coverage but was usually able to save himself with his good recovery speed."

Height and size as a "weakness" on an American scouting report are not applicable to the CFL standard - as they are usually graded towards a future in the NFL.

Yep exactly. His size looks ideal for a CFL MLB.

More about the pass coverage being " iffy " and not always being able to stay with the RB's out of the backfield. However, that was then and this is now. Nothing says he couldn't have worked on his weakness's.
