I could see a team like the Colts or Jaguars taking him. Both like fast LB's, and the Jags have already had good luck with UGA players (Marcus Stroud). I could see either of them taking him late 2nd or 3rd.

Do they have gaps at Linebacker? Or do they just want him for depth/special teams.

The Jags could use an OLB, and the Colts wouldn't mind having one on the other side of the field from June that coule hold his own.

Imagine how scary it would be if we got Greg Blue and Dwayne Slay to play safeties. That could possible be the worst coverage, but hardest hitting safety duo in the NFL. If I was Steve Smith I wouldn't want to run in the middle of the field.

More like they would just run around them since Slay is slow as crap & Blue can't adjust to speedy runners.

i dont think he will be a great OLB. just because he can hit doesnt mean he is "physical" enough to play lineback. You have to be able to get off blocks and get to the ball carrier and i think he will just get pushed around by NFL caliber lineman. I think if he plays linebacker he will be below average. His best chance is to try to improve his coverage skills and play safety.

He has similar size & speed to Lavar Arrington, so he could definitely be an impact player. He would need to get a little bigger, but he could definitely add the weight.

I think he's gonna be a lot like Ike Reese, very good at Special Teams and a descent linebacker.

He's a lot more physically gifted than Ike Reese. The question with Blue is can he translate that to the field somehow.

I agree hes got alot of potential. He could end up being the steal of the draft, or a bust to a team that takes a chance on him in the 2nd.
