Jesus he just about took that guys head off... OK that video sold me.
I don't know, or don't pretend to be able to grade/predict success of defensive prospects the way I can with WRs/TEs (Ima boss at it).. but what I DO know is that there doesn't seem to be a recipe for success for OLBs in a 3-4. They're probably the biggest hit or miss outside of QB... so i go with with i know (say that aloud).. when i see murder-murder on the field. I'll take it.
That was murder-murder.
