I'm a big fan of this guy but am wondering where he's projected to go in the draft. As a DE he's mad undersized, but at linebacker his size would be average and his quickness in coverage and explosiveness of the edge would still be exceptional. I've read everything from 2nd/3rd round to late round for this guy.

I think he will go in the 2nd to a 34 team in need of a good pass rushing LB.
(AZ, JETS) maybe somewhere else, he's a really good pass rusher. I expect to see him gone by the first day, Maybe early 3rd.

I think he's a late 2nd/early 3rd. he could go in any defense because he will essentially be drafted as a pass rush specialist though he may turn out to be a solid starting 34 OLB.

He's a tough one to figure out in that, he's a somewhat undersized rush backer (coming in at around 240 and 6'1"). That said, he's also a guy that can fit in as a pure LB. Most expectations have him in the 2nd/3rd range, and that's probably fair due to the athletic potential. I think a shorter Thomas Howard with Marcus.
