    5'11.7", 238-242, timed ~4.65-4.75, Jr. coming out

    157 tackles, 10.5 TFL, 2 sks, 3 ints.

    Expected to go late 1st-2nd, prolly 2nd. Stoops called him the best LB he's ever coached. Willis-esque in motor and back-story, humble nature, etc.

    Curious about reactions to this highlight video. Again, his speed is listed in the 4.7 range, but seems faster to me [note: int returns and chasing down C. Daniel (4.5 guy)]. I particularly like the goal-line strip.

    Note: You may want to turn volume down. I like Radiohead and all, but this song may be a bit much for some...

    Not for the #7, prolly won't last until the 2nd. But say a Dallas swap occurs, or just simply your opinion. Thanks.

    I think at a shade under 6' that may be his biggest downfall in the patriots system. He seems like a guy who would have a difficult time shedding Olineman, which is key in this system

    Yeah, that is a big bummer and I agree with you, based on popular opinion. I really like what I see from the guy, though. He seems very aware of situations.

    Unless this guy's arms can reach the ground when standing upright, we should probably pass on him.

    Think of all the 6'4" to 6'7" OG's and TE's that will be able to get their hands on him, before he can reach them and then just turn him anyway they want.

    There is a reason why arm length is a consideration factor in the draft game.
