  • Ali Highsmith

    Of LSU, with his small size, do u reckon a move to safety may be on the cards when he moves up to the pros?

    at 6 1 and about 225 hes very undersized for a pro LB and will struggle with blockers and bigger power backs

    No he definitely could play WLB in the NFL. He is probably 6-1 225-230 which is small for a LB but definitely won't force a move to SS. He would be a great pickup for a tampa 2 team, but I think his career won't be limited to a tampa 2 WLB. He is a great player with blazing speed for the position and he is a playmaker who knows how to hit. He could go first round imo.

          I don't see a move to safety. I think he's good at LB. He's small, but he's a playmaker and I think he really could be a star on a Tampa 2 team, as Don Vito said.

            He really only needs to pack on 15 pounds to continue to play LB.

                I think so too. I think late first but still the first. He's a player.

                  I don't think he's fast enough to play safety but he's a great fit for the tampa 2 anyway.

                    I think size is overrated a lot of the time. I mean there is definitely a line, but you don't have to be an elite LB with size and speed to be effective in the NFL. Keith Bulluck is 6-3 and maybe 235 max, and while he doesn't excel against the run per se, he still has a place on the NFL field, in a traditional 4-3 D no less.

                    Heart, skill, intelligence etc will limit a player before size IMO (realistically speaking of course).

                      A lot of teams are looking for speed at LB. They will put a little more weight on him but i dont think they will move him to SS

                        As a Giants fan would you think that Highsmith could be a good fit for them? I didn't pay too much attention to him in college since I'm an ACC guy.

                            You add his spped and playmaking ability. To the front line with Osi, Strahan, and Tuck( who is a beast) they could really couse havak in the back field.

                              he's definitely a LB, don't let the size fool you because he's an excellent tackler and doesn't shy away from any contact.
