Editor's note: Practice notes are updated daily and a final report will be completed on Friday.

There is no question that the 260-pound Rey Maualuga has the size, burst, athletic ability and attitude NFL teams covet at middle linebacker, but there are concerns about his discipline.

He's shown a tendency to overrun running backs and bite on play action so it's important the he read his keys, fill the correct gaps and take sound pursuit angles this week.

Note: Grades are done on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being the best.
