    He has good length (6-4, 33.5" arms) and good speed (4.67 forty at Pro Day).

    He will have to gain some weight/strength especially to play the Strong Side OLB.

    He was on my pet cat list going into the draft but I don't know if he'll ever be starting quality. He's never been a real pass rusher.

    That is the reason that I think it was a wasted pick. Dallas doesn't have but one pass rusher now and needs several more. This guy doesn't add to that.

    3 sacks as a senior in the ACC. Doubt he ever becomes dominant in that category.

    He played in a 3-4 his final year at Wake. In the games I watched, he was in coverage more often than most 3-4 OLBs. He was good against the run. Rushing the passer seemed to be his 3rd priority.

    Wake played a scheme where they tried to get pressure with small quick DLinemen. Their NT was 5-11, 260 lbs. This type of scheme puts extra pressure on the Linebackers to stop the run.

    None of this indicates that he will or will not be a good pass rusher, but at worst case, I think he has more upside than Victor Butler.
