He looks a lot like a poor man's David DeCastro. Granted, he needs to stay off the ground a little more and he obviously won't be knocking NFL defenders flat like that right off the bat -- the players he is hitting look clearly inferior in size and strength -- but with time to adjust I like his chances to succeed. I think he takes one of the last roster spots on the team, with he and Looney replacing Snyder and Rachal.
Appreciate the honesty and insight. Relentless...that's the thing that stands out the most. He not only wants to beat his man but beat him into submission. All I could see in this kid is Steve Wallace riding Junior Seau to his azz after about a 15 yard ride in the Superbowl. You take a guy who could only bench 225 three times to 38 reps all on his own is some serious work ethic. He will need to be developed like Boone but man, if he continues to progress and adheres to the nutrition program, he has a real shot here!
