    Has anyone seen much of this guy? He seems to be all over the board in various positional rankings.

    Perhaps a project with a middle round pick? Seems like a guy that has experience at multiple positions who might be able to be coached up once it is determined where he best fits. 40-time looks slow if accurate.

    Official Bio


    Strengths:
    Has good size and the frame to get bigger...Very athletic...Fast and quick with good range...An outstanding run defender...Big hitter and solid tackler who packs a punch...Smart with good instincts...A superb pass rusher and blitzer...Extremely versatile and has experience at inside linebacker and outside linebacker as well as defensive end...Was very productive...Still has a lot of potential and promise.

    Weaknesses:
    Coverage skills leave a lot to be desired but he has the physical tools to get better...Needs to get stronger and pack on some weight...Bounced around and has never been able to focus his attention on mastering one position...Raw.

    Notes:
    Could project to either inside or outside linebacker at the pro level...An interesting prospect who still has some upside once he can commit to a single position and be allowed to develop...Playmaker who could end up being a steal for someone.

    An interesting player because he is a converted DE. One I like though as a sleeper for a late round ILB for us. Might take awhile to develop, but seems to have the size for it.
