    Possible he could be the new Willie McGinest? Similar height and weight and role(OLB/DE) as he was...

    With his size I would say OLB.

    The word being used on him that I love is "consistent." That's what this team needed.

    I assume he starts as a nickel DE, and hopefully evolves into a more-downs OLB over time.

    If he can contribute in sub packages Year 1, that would be great.

    Position need addressed indeed with this pick. Good move!

    Clearly a position of need addressed.

    Surprising pick - not a highly regarded OLB candidate.
    Down the list, behind guys like Ricky Sapp and Daniel Te'O and others, with more production, more speed, better health.

    Bill likes the Florida program. We'll see how this works.

    I agree. Not the "sexy" guy but the word for him, as I said earlier, is "consistency." Very good pick. Very good draft so far when you put it together as a whole.
