    Ok, draftniks. Coach me up on this guy.

    I saw him on the allstar football challenge thing and to the eyeball he looks pretty impressive in shorts.

    Where is he projected to go in the draft and does he translate to an OLB?

    Seems like a solid third round prospect to me. I like his size 6030 260 he is a DE first OLB second. If teams project he could fit outside linebacker his stock could move bottom 3rd top of 2nd. The difference between him & first round DE/OLB prospects is he doesn't have elite explosiveness or range in coverage. Most probable, primary pass rush specialist/rotational player.

    Beerlover has him spot on. I liked Acho and had him @ third round on an earlier mock but some think he does well only when the opposition messes up which is ok but I want linebackers who can create opportunities not just take advantage.

    Thanks guys for the feedback, he LOOKS like a real player though.

    We would have an extremely impressive looking team with him, Mario and Cush.

    he was the only player on Texas that was worth a sh*t this past season.

    The CB Willams and Brown are pretty impressive also

    Good inside from Texan War Room.

    I love Aaron Williams but he didn't have a good year, but neither did any of the Longhorns. Curtis Brown is overrated imo, never really did anything or played up to his potential. He could be a great/good CB w/ the right team.

    He definitely is a 3-4 OLB prospect. Some have him going in the third or fourth round. I'd guess second or third. Very underrated.
