San Diego Chargers scouts met with UCLA LB Jordan Zumwalt after Senior Bowl practices yesterday, per Walter Football. Zumalt is a hard-hitting linebacker that is projected to be selected in the 3rd or 4th round. From the reports at the Senior Bowl, the dude is INTENSE. Check out what people are saying:
Jordan Zumwalt plays game with bad intentions. Looks to physically impose his will. Took interviews after prac w/ blood dripping down face.

Jordan Zumwalt/UCLA was politely asked to dial it back a bit. Intensity off the charts.

I love the "Jordan Zumwalt as psycho-LB" notes this morning. Trust me. You want this guy on your squad. You could see it when he was 15.

You’re also not going to get Jordan Zumwalt to dial it back a notch… He plays with one speed and one intensity. NOT. GONNA. HAPPEN. #UCLA

Jordan Zumwalt is a hammer. He's smacking the Rb is rush drills and showing violent rush moved #ucla

The guy is on the field and is ready to hit some people. Zumwalt is an intense football player and will look to lay the wood when he gets to the ball carrier. That is something that the Chargers and any team could use more of. There might be a fines coming in his career.
