I'm really curious if any of you guys have noticed him. He's 6'7" 240ish and plays the "drop end" position (basically the same position that Chris Clemons plays for Pete Carroll in Seattle) which is essentially a 3-4 OLB. But the kid is one hell of an athlete. They actually at some points yesterday, had him lined up as a CB, and would jam the WR and pass him off to the CB playing like 10 yards off or so, instead of having him drop to the flats from that 3-4 OLB position.

He ran the 20 yard shuttle during the spring, in a blazing 4.08 seconds (and our times are usually way slower than NFL's, see Cliff Harris' 4.79 40 time and Lamichael James (who's one of the faster guys on the track team at UO) who has like a 4.6 40 time here), had a 33.5 inch vertical.

He reminds me a lot of Manny Lawson when he plays, just that long lean frame, and looks WAY too fluid to be that tall.
