In general I think guys like him get talked about going in rd.2, but ultimately get drafted in rd. 1 just because the potential is through the roof.
he's also got some stats to back up those measurables - 45 tackles for losses in college...
EDIT - I watched some tape just now vs Nebraska, he doesn't look like even a 2nd rounder. Not physical enough + doesn't look like he has a great motor. Going to look at more...
I honestly think the "hip fluidity" is vastly overrated with rush-OLBs. Physicality and motor are much more important for what we need defensively as our OLBs rarely are going to turn and run with opposing TEs.
Id be more concerned with hip fluidity with one of our ILBs who are going to need to be faster and will be in coverage more.
