I absolutely love it. Last night I was watching Path to the Draft and the Niners linebackers coach was running the LB drills at the combine. This is very similar to last year when the niners ran the DE drills and ended up picking a surprise in Aldon Smith.
Jim Leavitt worked the linebackers and I am convinced this up close coaching will help him pick a developmental OLB for the 3-4 in round 4-6.
I did notice he chatted up some players and tried to get in their head a little, and others he just ignored and put them through the drills as quickly as possible. With Patrick Willis and Navarro Bowman, Aldon Smith and Parys Haralson, any rookie would have a high potential to develop with this structure.
