Lacks pass rush repetoire but first step/quickness puts him in position to get selected. Gets blocked too easily for me, especially against the run. I wouldn't be upset with the pick, just think there is too much "potential" and not enough meat on the bones, like an OLB version of Jacoby Jones. A lot of developing to do.

• Not tough or physical

• Average instincts
• Disinterested vs. run
• Overpowered by TEs
• Weight ballooned as a junior
• Can be difficult to coach, manage

The Way We See It:
Immature, finesse rusher who regressed as a junior after stacking on 20 pounds and negating his elite speed. Soft football temperament could relegate him to a pass-rush-specialist role. Coachability concerns could diminish his value.
I think he may be overrated as a 2nd round pick but his athleticism would still hold value in the 3rd.
