    What really took my interest was his outstanding combine numbers.
    1.59 10-yard split, 36 vertical, 4.34 20-yard shuttle, 6.88 3-cone drill. Those are usually indicative of an elite 3-4 OLB.

    His motor and unfamiliarity with the position will no doubt turn off teams, but based on athleticism alone, he's an elite prospect, the second best 3-4 OLB in the draft behind Von Miller.

    He's a guy that definitely fits the bill as an OLB for us. The only negatives he really has is inexperience playing linebacker and the transition to playing in space that comes with it, and that's something that more than half the 34 rush linebackers have when they come to the NFL from having been college DE's. For me he's a 3rd round guy.
