He's still very raw, by just about every account I've read...instead of taking a chance he'll develop at the speed of a meteor, I'd go after one of several bigs who can play anywhere on the DL. I'm talking about both Williams'...Jesse and Sylvester, Hankins (despite his slow 40 time), Jenkins, Floyd, Richardson. Few players are absolute sure things, but again, it's our #1 pick we're talking about here. I'd be very leery about a raw player who "might" reach some freakish potential at some point. To truly beef up the DL, I'd go with a more sure pick.
That's the goal, but it doesn't always work like that (AJJ). From what I've seen, he look very strong and has good quickness and size, but does need to get lower so he doesn't get pushed back on run plays. I'd be ok drafting him, because he looks like a Calais Campbell type.
