    Anyone like this kid as much as I do? Hes a big MLB 6'5 that can disrupt the inside run game and has good speed to drop back and cover or rush around the edges. He's only 218 so he would obviously need to work on adding some strength and weight. I watched louisville quite a bit this past season and he was always around the ball. He would make a great 6th round pick in my opinion.

    His weight would not coincide with Parcells liking.

    His size would more than coincide with parcells liking. We go from dat who was like 5'10 or whatever it was to Johnson who is 6'5. 1 good year of lifting weights and he will be 240+

    20+ pounds is a lot of weight to put on in a year. Even then, your talking only 240lbs, which is not huge for a 34 OLB. The question would be can he put the weight on and still keep speed? No way to tell that.

    He would need to put on 30 to 40 pounds because of his Height, I don't think Parcells will do it.

    If this is the guy I'm thinking of, he's a very skinny LB. And not everyone can just go put on 30-40 lbs. Everyone has a frame to work with to build muscle on.....but I guess we could make him a pot bellied LB :p:
