But Rodriguez has continued to impress both on and off of the field as he continues to make a name for himself during his rookie season in the NFL.
How did Malcolm Rodriguez grade out against the Seahawks?
In fact, Rodriguez posted a very solid grade of 83.8 on Sunday, which bumped his overall grade up to 70.5 for the season, whcih is 13th in the NFL for linebackers who have played at least 149 snaps in 2022.
Rodriguez racked up the tackles against the Seahawks
Rodriguez was arguably the Lions best defensive player against the Seahawks as he racked up 10 tackles in the game.
But tackling was not all that Rodriguez did on Sunday as he also came up with a forced fumble on special teams.
Malcolm has now recorded 33 total tackles over his first four games as a professional, which is not too shabby for an undersized linebacker who was selected late in the NFL Draft.
