We interviewed this kid at the East West Shrine Game. I believe we were the only team to do so. Someone correct me if Im wrong. He has a medical flag that will need to be evaluated, but he has had the issue resolved through surgery. I think the kid is a genuine talent, but I think if we are serious about getting him we'll probably have to snatch him in the 5th and I think he is worth it.
Sounds like we should just let him play safety..? Wait wait wait, Harper and Jenkins were only ranked the two worst safeties in the league because of the scheme. Yeah let's shift him out of position and set up a 2 year project. Just kidding. But not really.
In a 3-4 safeties get left on an island a lot. He might be able to handle the TEs, but I cant see a 6'5 235 pounder playing effective man to man with speed receivers down-field (ie: Juilo Jones).
We might want to pass on this one in the draft and expect he will fall through the cracks. If his stats clearly indicated that he belonged at a D1 school (like say if he had 28 pds and 9 ints) he would be more interesting, In a 3-4, he would bring no more to the table than roman harper as a safety. If you move him to linebacker though, then you have to make a long term project out of him like Junior.
