Scouting Report:

"Four-year starter who brings a great work ethic and leadership qualities to the table. Vitale's tape shows a multi-­dimensional player who may fit in with the changing face of hybrid football, but he doesn't really have an element of his game that he can hang his hat on as a true strength by NFL standards. Vitale can do many things for a team, but can he do them at a high level? Vitale's special teams play could be instrumental in making a team’s roster." - Lance Zierlein,
