I'm a fan, but he's a guy that doesn't get talked about. He's got the frame of a 4-3 DE and he could probably put on weight, but I think he moves well enough and is smart enough to play as a stand up LB. He's one of the smartest defensive players in this draft on the field. Knows how to rush the pass rusher. Weaknesses seem to be that he's not a dynamic athlete in the class of a Von Miller or Robert Qiunn.

I'm wondering what the outside world's thoughts on him were. He's someone I could see starting, but not immediately and even the position is in question. Still, guys like him can be players in this league if he improves his athleticism under the league's secret muscle juice program/s.
