I feel that he rose sharply due to a productive NC game and Senior Bowl where he had 2 sacks (Logan Thomas...) I dont think I would have a problem taking him in the 3rd round. But #33 is just too high IMO.
I will take back my comment on Yawin as I just dont know much about him. I would be OK with him in the 3rd since we desperately need youth at the ILB position and he does have very impressive tackling numbers and size.
