Chris Long and Mike Hart immediately come to mind. Long can play multiple defensive positions in multiple schemes very well, is awesome at immediately recognizing/diagnosing where the ball is going, and has every pass rushing move in the book. Hart has incredible vision, patience, and intelligence while running the ball, which on the college level makes up for being both small and slow. How many 5'7, 190, 4.6 guys rack up the yards like he does?

Chris Long is obviously a much better prospect, but both are really smart players.

How does someone who is too "small" or "slow" lead the big 10 in tackles back to back years.

Jake Long is very smart in pass protection.
