Southern Miss went 0-12 this past season. lol
After watching a couple of his games, my initial thought is that he's a project.
He's very raw with his techniques and I don't think he's very smart/instinctive either; like he's still learning the game.

So much physical abilities; just don't know how to make use of them.

The guy who I like is Gerald Hodges out of Penn State. Did not run like Jon Bostic buy I watched tape on them both and Hodges seems to be around the ball much more and is good in coverage. I think he would be a nice fit in our system. If you have not watched any film on him watch a little and tell me what you think...

I agree on Collins who had fantastic combine. College stats were good also. Seems to need good coaching but has all skills for pass rush and coverage. What impresses me is he did not seem to give up during a win less season. That earns major points from me. Rated #93 (3rd) which seems a bit high.

Any linebacker out there have maybe some ability to cover gronk over in NE. I am not saying the Texans need to reach. With Just Brady signing an extension. We will meet again.

Just wondering if there is someone that might have the size and/or speed
If they had to cover him or Hernandez

There really aren't any linebackers in all of the NFL that can cover Gronk or Hernandez on a consistent basis. We will need to change our gameplan against teams such as the Pats to have success against them. It's not a problem of players but rather scheme.

As I stated after the playoff loss, man coverage is not the answer.

How about this Jake Knott. He didn't finish the season with a shoulder tear and October surgery, but that shouldn't be too serious. 6'-2" ; 243 ; projected 40 about 4.70, which is pretty good. Although listed as an OLB, he also projects inside in a 34. His pro day workout is March 26. Should be available in the late rounds unless he really impresses during the pro day workout. Until his injury, he was rated higher than his teammate Klein, by some. His rehab started in late November.

"The week of Feb. 19 was the “four-month mark” that Dr. Gordon Nuber told Knott would be the time it took for his shoulder to be completely healed. Now Knott is still working on his strength and physical ability, waiting to perform all physical tests until March 26, which is Iowa State’s Pro Day."
