Jordan Fox is a versatile, athletic linebacker who will fit well into the Stanford system. He has played both the inside and outside linebacker positions (note his rankings above), so it isn't yet clear where he'll fit for the Cardinal, but that's a good thing. Given the squad's current depth at linebacker, Fox will have a year or two to develop as he waits his turn, and during that time it's likely that he'll find a position to focus on. His game film shows him at both spots, but wherever he's playing he lines up in a traditional linebacker stance. Even so, he specializes at wreaking havoc in the backfield, whether he's wrapping up a quarterback on a blitz or blasting through the line of scrimmage to pull down a running back.
Fox will likely see the field in 2016 or '17, and when he does he'll be ready to keep Stanford's linebacker tradition going strong.
