What he has that are tough to teach are terrific instincts which allow him to play faster than his 40 time. That's tough to teach. Having said all that I don't know if he's my pick at 27, I'm hopeful we can trade down but if we pick him I won't be upset, he'll improve our team as he'd instantly be the 2nd best ILB on the team
yeah, but he would be a liability in Wade's man scheme. There will be better players available at 27. We can get a stack linebacker later in the draft.
