Could using him as the same way the Broncos use Von Miller work in Detroit if they drafted him? Is he athletic enough to drop back in coverage?

There's no reason this couldn't have gone into the prospects thread.

But, I think he could but it likely wouldn't be too pretty the first year because he played closer to the line in college, and as a 4-3 OLB he'd have to cover a little deeper and some faster players.

I think his talents would be better suited at LDE, but I think the staff, if he's available, should just draft him based on his talent level and adjust the scheme as needed.

Good question. Glad some of these topics being started. Hate everything being crammed into one freaking thread about prospects. Having to dig thru it is garbage.


I am not sure he should be compared to Von Miller but you are really only comparing how they use him so I guess I can see it a bit.

I am not sure he would have same impact as Von but I would not mind him in a trade back. Problem is he is going to go a lot higher based on his workouts.

It's alright to stand on it's own. It should generate enough discussion and shouldn't be a big deal unless we have threads opening up for every possible prospect. We can use it to talk about other DE/OLB guys as well.

With that said, I think the Lions need to land a DE to play DE this high not so much a guy without a position that may or may not be able to succeed as a LB.
