4.19 speed? Ridiculous for a OLB. The crazy thing is that this guy doesn't over-pursue, has good acceleration, and great tackling ability. I think he can be an every down OLB, but you can use him as a pass rush specialist for now, and then ease him into the role. Heck, you could put him on kick return duty...
4.19 at 245?
God, do I sound like Al Davis now or what...but this guy can play football and has jaw dropping speed. That is rare.
Ryan Kerrigan has too much size and not enough athleticism to go with it to play 3-4 OLB. He'll make a fine 4-3 end though.
Purdue’s Ryan Kerrigan plays defensive end in college but there are plenty who feel he’s capable of making the transition to outside linebacker in an odd front. Kerrigan may not possess elite size, speed or athleticism but he’s just a terrific football player with a non-stop motor who finds a way to get the job done and that has endeared him to pro scouts. In many ways Kerrigan will remind you of Mike Vrabel, who he could ultimately replace in KC. http://www.draftcountdown.com/sub/Mock-Draft-B.php
