Sodano shows steady playing speed to the ball however his playing strength and explosion at the point of attack must improve. Has the height for the inside linebacker position at the major level of competition; should be able to add body mass to his frame over time. Displays good drive blocking ability as a tight end; can set the edge with good finishing results. Shows good flexibility and balance in space; flashes good K&D recognition skills although needs to be more patient against misdirection plays; makes a good attempt to play downhill and stack the inside run at the point of attack. Is more productive when able to avoid contact and beat blockers with quick recognition skills; works thorough traffic well displaying consistent pursuit habits. Demonstrates steady speed to the football but lacks a great closing burst. Flashes potential as an underneath coverage defender; shows crossover and plant ability with good short / medium route recognition; may have problems if asked to man up on inside receivers. This prospect is a sure wrap tackler who is rarely out of position. Sodano does not project high as a major level prospect; improved explosion and playing speed could improve his value.
