For those who you who have not yet heard of this kid - do some research!!! In 2008, he was the leader of TCU's top ranked defense while pacing the nation in sacks with 15... and is off to another fast start this year.
At 6'3" 257lbs, he is the perfect size for a pass-rushing 3-4 OLB in the NFL, and his combination of quickness and strength conjures images of a Lamar Woodley or Larry English. He is able to consistently get pressure on the QB with an explosive first step off the line and playing with excellent leverage - consistently gets under the pads of OTs and bull rushes them back two to three steps before opening up his large tool box of rush moves and redirecting either outside or inside.
Here's a quick look some of his game tape from last year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwiD6xHX3Nw
And you can keep an eye on his production this year @ http://cfbstats.com/2009/player/698/1007635/index.html - As you can see, Virgina's OTs didnt stand a chance.
This kid will undoubtedly represent one of the rare occurences where team need and perceived value actually overlap in the 1st round... I dont expect him to go in the top 15 next year with more heralded players like Gregg Hardy and George Selvie on the table, but feel that he would be perfect for our 2nd 1st rounder.
Positioning him opposite of Parys Haralson would provide our defense with two blue-chip pass rushers who can also be extremely stout against the run - And we will finally have the combination we've been looking for since transitioning to the 3-4.
