Noah Sewell is a physical, high-effort linebacker who plays with awareness to read and react. Sewell has some position versatility and has a good set of pass-rush moves to be effective from the edge. He plays better on the ball than off the ball, where although he can cover from the slot he is best attacking the ball, defending the run and using his physicality to take over a game. Penei Sewell’s younger brother who plays with the same nasty, toughness.
