    Didnt impress at SB or practices. Scouts wonder where he'll play. Right now a guy without a position.

    Depends on his first step, how he turns the corner, and if he can set the edge and tackle. He could probably weigh 275. I don't know how he plays. Just caught my eye.

    He is a 3-4 OLB for Alabama. The way they use him reminds me of how RR used Spencer in the 3-4. His 1st priority appears to be setting the edge against the run. He also plays some coverage. He covers RBs in the flat or plays some zone. If he determines that it's a pass an the RB is not running a route to his side, then he rushes the passer. When they use a 4-man line, he will line up as a DE.

    I don't see a 4-3 team drafting him as a LB. He will probably get drafted by a 3-4 team or possibly as a 4-3 DE.
