    People really started looking at the tape and realized that he's nothing special.

    Basically a poor mans Chris Long.

    Strictly a 4-3 end with limited upside.

    I personally never understood why he was mentioned as a 1st rounder, much less a Top 5 pick.

    This DE class has a ton of good talent and he really doesn't stand out. He is a better overall prospect then guys like Jordan and Jones but isn't the blitzing beast people love to see. Coples fell for pretty much the same reasons last year but was also a better prospect IMO. He is pretty much the same prospect Long was just isn't a Long.

    If Mingo isn't available, I don't see us taking a DE in the first

    This is a very solid Football player who just makes the plays that needs to be made. Nothing flashy, and that's why he's being overlooked. This is the type of football player who plays for 10+ years, and you wake up 1 day and find out that he's been all pro his entire career.

    The kid makes the plays that need to be made.

    watching him at the combine you could see he wouldn't be able to make the switch to OLB. he was stiff and slow.

    Cause he's nothing special. Honestly, watch him. Carradine was the real beast on that team.

    +1

    If Carradine didn't blow out his ACL, he'd be viewed as the best passrusher in this draft class.

    I watched a handful of FSU games this year and never once did I see a guy who had potential to be dominant in the NFL.

    Of course, I'm not a pro scout, but it's pretty obvious when a guy has the potential... and I don't think he does.
