    What round is this guy projected in and what is everyone's opinion of this guy? I saw him play a few times this year and where the football is so is CM3. I think he would be great to have on this team. Good kid, comes from a lineage of NFL Hall of Fame talent.

    his stock has really risen. initially mid second day, then starting getting more PT, thought it was around the OSU game he came one, of course Cushing & others where banged up to give him a chance but credit to him for making the most of it. He is now likely a solid 3rd rounder, could even be selected in 2nd. interesting 3-4 OLB prospect. IMO

    I'm not sold on his ability to cover, and reports out of the Senior Bowl have him getting blocked out of plays by TEs pretty regularly.

    You hit it on the head. He's most likely a 3rd rounder and a 3-4 OLB. He can't cover well and was usually blitzing or rushing off the edge.
