My faith in Ayers has grown exponentially as time has gone by. Literally the only thing he could do to make him more appealing is be more of a badass. If he was more of a badass, he probably wouldn't be there at 30 (sadly, still probably won't)...hell if he was more of a badass he might be getting Arrington comparisons minus the on field discipline problems...that's probably too far but w/e...close enough.
I really think you underrate the crap out of Ayers, though I can understand why...I did it at one point too. Amongst the guys who can athletically handle the 3-4 OLB position I think he offers the best combination of things that can actually be described as football skills. He's got the potential to be an all around playmaker, which in our search for THE pass rusher gets naturally underrated...That and on the field he just gives a damn more than most guys with his kind of talent.
