    Another OLB that would fit our 3-4 defense perfectly. Do you want speed at OLB, but don't have a chance at Manny Lawson?

    This guy could be your man.


    He's 6-5 228, runs a 4.44 and has a 37 VJ.

    He needs to bulk up some, but is still a great prospect on day 2.

    6'5" 228?

    That is very thin. He would get bulldozed by the rush.

    Yes, right now he would be a liability against the run. I'm not advocating for him to start as a rookie....no way!

    Look, he's the type of player you put on ST's or the PS. First, you get him started in the training program, then you give him some plays in preseason to get some film on the guy. Then, you activate him at the end of season for mostly ST's and maybe a few plays in the nickel. Then next year, you send him to NFLE and let him knock some guys around on a regular basis.

    In short, you develop the guy into a freakin' monster before you turn him loose on pass plays etc.

    Cmon...think man! :D
