True, but that's pretty much what Clay Matthews did at USC if I'm not mistaken (he may have had 6 total in his career). Much like Ansah, he walked on to the program and didn't really have a clear-cut position until his senior year.
I understand that he is going to be a very high pick in the draft, even though there is some risk involved because he is new to the game.
I am more impressed with his 10 passes broken up,13 tackles for a loss, and 7 quarterback hurries than I am with his 4.5 sacks.
I would stress the former numbers in arguing for him.
The proposed trade, though, is just flat out loony.
One element that needs to be considered is his commitment to football.
He went to BYU as a sprinter, then tried basketball, and then football.
I am not sure that he has a love for the game, or if he will develop one.
Without that love, maintaining the required discipline can be hard.
We have to wait and see. It is pretty clear that he is going to be drafted in the top 15.
I wish him all the luck in the world. He sounds like a good kid.
