This is the one pick that I just don't understand. His size & speed, for most 3-4 defenses, seems to put him in between the LB & DE position w/ him leaning to more of the LB position being that he only weighs 7-10lbs more then Reed & Cushing. The problem is his speed, or lack thereof, for a speed rusher. With that being said, he would need roughly need an extra 20lbs on him to play DE where is speed wouldn't be a concern. The question marks seem to be there physically & w/ his reported poor combine interviews in which it was revealed that he took not only plays, but in some cases games off against lesser opponents it makes me wonder what the appeal was.
I felt there were better options at other positions to be honest, but I guess we will have to wait & see what's up Wade's sleeve for this guy.
