    Sorry, I was already high on the kid and just spent the weekend braking down some Boise St games. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite prospects in this draft and not just because what I see on film. The way the coaches and players speak about this kid and hearing his interviews he reminds me so much of Sean Lee.

    This guy is going to shoot up the draft boards. If we can get him in round 4, that'd be great. Need more guys like this on the team.

    I fully expect him to settle into the late part of round 2 and early part of round 3. He's not the most athletic, very comparable to Lee in that department so it wont be his workouts that do it. Coaches and scouts are simply going to see his production and instincts on tape then fall in love with the kid when they meet him.

    All I need to see is the Sean Lee comparison, get him.

    I can't wait for some of the draft interviews and footage to come out like it did with Lee leading up to the draft. It won't be hard to make the comparison.

    I wouldn't mind him if he makes it to the 3rd or 4th, which he should.

    I like this kid too and hope we can get him. Unfortunately, I doubt that he will make it to the 4th rd. He might go early in the 3rd or late 2nd.

    The combine numbers may force him down though. May appear too slow, or lack the burst off the edge for many teams as a 3-4 OLB even though that appears to be his best fit.

    I love his motor and if he does make it to the 4th round, I'd sure be looking seriously at him. A special teams beast and a situational pass rusher at the very least. Good character guy too.

    Until the combine, we won't know what happens with his stock- just like all the rest.

    We need guys like this on our team.

    I see him going late second. Measurables aren't good enough, but teams will value his production and character. Type of player a good team picks up in the second because, at worst, player becomes long term quality depth. At best, becomes new leader of the team.

    if he has enough quickness yes; but sadly all the want to in the world will not make up for being too slow.

    Wikipedia has Jared Allen's 40 at 4.72.

    Draftcountdown has 14 DEs with 40s at 4.75 and faster.

    Would be a candidate for a Jay Ratliff draft of players described as "relentless".

    To confound me Ingram from South Carolina is listed as a 4.80 forty guy.

    actually the 10 yd split is more of an indicator then the 40. You need a guy with a fast first few steps.

    He seems like a high effort/motor guy who makes a lot of plays in pursuit.

    I don't see much burst out of him on that highlight video.

    He does appear to be tough at the point of attack and is a very good tackler who should be good in the run defense.

    I kind of see Anthony Spencer but with with a better motor.

    I'd think about him in the 4th round but not earlier as I don't think the measurables are going to be there for a good edge pass rusher which is what we are looking for. I'd much rather take a shot at Bruce Irvin, Curry, Ingram, Hightower or Whitney in the late first to mid second round for a Spencer replacement.

    We really need a CB, OG and OLB in this draft or FA to fill out our roster.

    He reminds me of (insert white defensive player).
