    Derrick Thomas (dec)?
    DeMarcus Ware?
    Willie?
    LT?
    Merriman?

    I'm not really familiar with his game and the highlight reel doesn't show me much. Which LB is he comparable to?

    "Willie McGinest" but a bit more athletic. As far as football smarts like Willie that remains to be seen.

    His Defensive Coordinator in Baltimore, Rex Ryan, compares AD to Carl Banks. I think BB knows a little bit about Banks...

    Ryan actually compares him to both LT and Banks. He might be a little overexagerating. From what I have seen I think he is a faster Willie Mac. except Willie was taller so Thomas is more stout which I think makes him a little better on the inside which Willie wouldnt really do.

    I'd say Willie too, but the 1995 version, and with cover skills on par with Ray Lewis (note: I am not comparing AD to Ray Lewis, but I think they are equally good in coverage).
     
  8. I hope he plays his best football here...

    He is a lot like Monty Biesel....except....AD tackles better, covers routes better, rushes the passer better, holds the point of attack better, is faster, bigger, understands defenses better....

    So..he is like a good Monty Beisel is the best way to think about it.

    I think Willie might have more power in bull rushing, too.
    Or had.

    Reminds me a bit of Greg Lloyd, the old Steelers LB. Big, powerful, but quick and good in coverage. Excellent all-around. He's kind of Lloyd to Colvin's Kevin Greene.
