What are your alls thoughts on him and where and how he projects in the NFL?
He's short and undersized and projects to the weakside in the NFL. He also is not a speed demon at all, in fact he is on the slow side for a linebacker. That being said he has great game speed and has great reaction. He also is a great blitzer and is blitzes up the middle a ton and led the team in sacks. He reminds me a lot of Gerald McRath in body type who only went in the 4th round. Also I am a MSU fan and I have seen Greg play every game. He is poor in pass coverage and is not usually an overpowering tackler. He doesn't miss many tackles, but a lot of his tackles he grabs the opponents legs and twists until he goes down (what I mean is he doesn't produce many devastating tackles, he just kinda holds on until they're down).
Also MSU's defensive coordinator basically said how he doesn't think Greg is ready as he still plays off of pure instincts 75% of the time as he doesn't recognize what the opponents offense is doing pre-snap yet. He also only understands his role in the defense, which he feels Greg needs to expand to really become good.
I feel if Greg comes out and runs well at the combine he would be a 3rd rounder at best. If he runs poorly he could drop to round 4-5. If he stays another year and improves on things he could work his way up to a middle to late 1st rounder.
