What are your guys thoughts on him as a ILB?
I never watched him as I expected someone to reach and select him just ahead of us. Not seen any notes on him inside but he does have size:


Run defense: Lacks an obvious power element to his game and struggles to shed blocks on run plays. Doesn't consistently set the edge and will over run his responsibilities. Still developing his recognition skills and instincts. Struggles to consistently locate the ball and will get caught out of position at times. Explosion: Fires off the snap with a first step
