I know we have talked about OT and QB plenty on here and rightfully so but has anyone watched this guy play the last 2 years?
2010 Nebraska record 152 tackles, 6 sacks, 10 pass breakups, and 15 tackles for a loss.
How about his final game as a JUCO player where he mirror Cam Newton the whole game and pretty much shut him completely down as Blinn's powerful offense only managed a few scores (one of which was a punt return)
The knock on him would be his size as he is about 6'1 230 but i think he could come in and put on some weight and be a huge upgrade next to DJ. He is a sure tackler and good in coverage and can really close on the ball and wrap a guy up. Belcher is bad at best in coverage and just does not have that closing ability due to either awareness or speed or both.
He should go in the 2nd or early 3rd so I am not talking about a high pick for him and dont get me wrong i like Te'o better but I really think with all the passing teams in the NFL it would be nice to have another 3 down LB that might even free DJ up to russ the passer more.
Just throwing another name out there as we discuss some players I am not going to outline needs etc (yes i know we need a NT, QB, and OT)
The guy is really impressive on film and seems to be a real emotional player that we could use. Imagine him next to DJ with a healthy Berry behind them!
If anyone has any other player that has stood out go ahead and post i like reading about the prospects.
