bio (nothing about 2005 other than scholarship. must not have been updated since start of last season. )
6'3" 253 lb ILB hard hitter, 2nd on team in tackles sophomore yr. Quiet, belies his nature on the field--
Heaviest LB on the board, good height, we need a guy like this.

He's a Ted Johnson replacement candidate with his size and reputation. I think I'd like to try DE Mike Kudla of the Ohio State in the TJ run stuffer role, he ran a 4.6-ish 40 and benched 45 reps and is 6'2" 265. Not a knock on Kai, I just think we can find the same run stuffing quality in a more athletic package.

Yeah, I was talking up Parham quite a lot too. That time sucks. It's slower than some DTs. I know he's got perfect size and great intangibles. But that speed just ain't gonna cut it.
I agree on Kudla. Other than him, a conversion project that interests me is Mark Anderson from Alabama.
Interesting he had 8.5 sacks from an ILB position. May play faster than he timed out. Kudla does sound like a beast, but will likely draw a lot of interest.
Parham played both inside and outside. Al Groh had him blitz quite a bit. Same with Ahmad Brooks.

keep in mind, BB and Poli tend to draft guys who can make plays, and rarely look at combine stuff IMO.

I too talked up Parham quite a bit. He definitely plays faster than a 5 plus in the forty. Part of the reason for that is because his instincts are so good. I would be very curious to know if he went to any speed camps before the combine. If he did, he needs a refund.
