    Too small for 43 DE and may not have the speed/agility for 34 OLB.  Also, six of his 11.5 sacks came against inferior competition (Vandy and TN, if I remember right).  I hope he blows it up at the combine, but the draft grade seems about right - maybe even too high, unfortunately.  I have him as the 15th best of available OLB/DE to OLB converts.  I hope I am wrong.

    In terms of talent and potential production, the question is whether is more like Elvis Dumervil than Ricky Elmore...In the end let us hope he's Jackie Robinson.

      I'm just amused that my first response was actually the one that Hansen used as a Dave-Barry-style misdirection.

      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.
