Analysis: One of the first things you have to look for in linebacker is toughness. Are they willing to make contact on every single play? This looks to be the case for Winovich, as he has an instinctive first step and blows plays up before they even happen. Winovich plays with outstanding aggression and is very explosive. He has excellent speed and can make plays from sideline to sideline. Winovich has enough speed to chase down running backs far down field. He does a nice job of using his hands to shed blockers and scraping to get to the ball carrier. Winovich is really long at 6-foot-4 and can really get in between passing lanes. He is excellent when dropping into coverage. Winovich can be a force coming off the edge as an outside linebacker and can really close on the quarterback. He is very good at finishing off his opponent when he tackles. Winovich has great form tackling. Winovich is a great fit as an outside linebacker in college, where Michigan is recruiting him at.

Improvements: Winovich has a great frame to add weight to being 6-foot-4, and will need to bulk up for Big Ten play, as he weighs about 215-220 right now. With Winovich being a taller linebacker, he can do a better job of getting his pad level down to take on contact.
