Your probably going to see some growing pains in his first year. He is not ready to take the field as a OLB in a 3-4 from day 1 and will probably only see limited duties in his 1st year. His ceiling and skill set will cause him to get drafted a little higher then he really should go but it's one of those cases you pay a little now for a lot later.
He won't need massive growth in the weight room that most rookies require. He's a weight room junkie with a very strong upper body.
our desperate need in the front 7 is a guy the offenses fear. right now they only fear Ware as regards pass rush. You think this kid can be our JPP?
