He also seemed to hesitate on some plays and seemed like he didn't want to stick his nose in on the action. Overall, I'd say he is not a "thumper" but flashes enough speed, strength, coverage skills, etc.. to pick up maybe in the 4th. Problem is, this class is so weak at ILB, that someone may look at him in the 3rd or even late 2nd. JMO!
My question was: how does he play the run? Can he maintain outside contain or get swept away like just another lightweight CB?
Being able to rush the passer is inconsequential if teams can run on you all day.
Loyalty to any one sports team is pretty hard to justify. ...the players are always changing, the team can move to another city, you're actually rooting for the clothes when you get right down to it.
