i'm not sold.
I don't know about his hips. But the guy racked up sacks and tackles for loss, was a team captain, and is athletic enough to block kicks. I'm really no expert and I haven't watched as much of these guys as many of you on this board, but I really feel like 3-4 OLB is one of the most over analyzed positions in the draft. Everyone wants guys that over 6'3" or are freakish athletes. I think you want productive DEs that are a little smaller and faster than average and play with power.
From everything I've read and heard, people say Eric Norwood is an ideal 3-4 OLB. I think his measurables are about 6'1 and 250 lbs!
