NFL Draft chat with East Carolina linebacker Ty Holmes.

Ty Holmes is an inside linebacker who is punishing, quick and an agile tackler and a passionate player with natural football instincts and a superior knowledge of the game. He is a dynamic athlete and battle-tested veteran who played mostly in nickel packages and was a top-tier player on special teams (punt and kickoff returns) all four years during his college career.
