Don't know anything about him. Was hoping for a TE.

Know nothing about him. Don't get the pick. Hopefully it ends up being legendary.

Is he strictly a mike linebacker or will he compete with Bradham at the strongside?

Louisville's leading tackler the last two years.

Sounds like a very similar player.  Backup and probably replacement.

Not a bad pick (can never have enough thumpers), but I think there was better value in areas of need (OG).

Underwhelming to me. Slow. Not a good cover linebacker. We'll see though.

Was Nix still available?  Because the Bills needed a backup DT well before a backup LB.

Interesting... Mayock and Davis said they liked him a lot more after they watched more tape...They said he's more than just a downhill thumper... No matter what you read about him everyone agrees he's a real good size/athlete guy...

Basically a Spikes clone...

Aggressive, big physical player against the run with good instincts who is very good against the run and struggles in coverage and drops...suggest he is likely a two-down "run thumper"

He is a big physical MLB against the run..basically his strength/weaknesses/bottom line reads like a Brandon Spikes clone and is likely a hedge against hi not resigning after this year...

Spikes is twice the man this kid is, don't like the pick unless we already plan to have Spikes for only 1 year.
