Gotta love some of his recent Tweets.

When we were OTC in the 2nd round.

I'm late here too but I'm incredibly excited for this pick.

NASCAR off the edges with Clemons lol. Kid's been given chances amd continues to improve as a person which is the best thing about him.

Did someone oqpt to guess sack total over at least 14 games yet? Laughing

Just watched Irvin's live presser.

I know it's been said but Pete said that Clem is going to take him under his wing and teach him the position. That the LEO is taylor made for him. In the meantime this year he will be in Raheem Brock's old spot 600 Snaps.

They asked Bruce why things didn't work out at Safety; he mentioned that all of the reads and coverage changes were hard for him to grasp so the coach said, "go to DE and just get after the passer".

I wouldn't normally bring this up again but this was exactly my point to Tats when he was yelling at me. He didn't play a SLB type position because his strengths are reading and diagnosing plays. The thing he's good at, and better than anyone else is just getting to the QB. He will never play SLB for us.

Rolling Eyes There's a large difference between what he'd have to recognize at SLB and at S. Rushing the QB from SLB isn't any different than from LEO. Against the run, he'd be asked to keep outside contain basically. We'd rarely put him in coverage situations, if anything just flats or hook zones.

after watching his press introduction i've come to this conclusion:

It's impossible for me to NOT like Bruce Irvin. I didn't like the value on draft day, but i'm a fan of this guy after learning all that i have about him

He's a beast. 2 points for Tats

Confused Because I've always wanted to see what he can do at SLB before putting him at LEO means I got his position wrong? If Carroll really does use him like he used Clay at LEO, we're going to Irvin used in ways pretty much identical to what I wanted out of him at SLB.

More on Bruce Irvin, including gametape


Quote:
Irvin may be the fastest pass-rusher I have ever seen. As far as pure burn off the line, he's cartoonish. Comes off the ball and gets a couple of steps in before all but the best tackles can get their hands up and feet set to deal with him. Has closing speed to the quarterback or ballcarrier common to the fastest cornerbacks.
