    In the 3 yrs per carry draft podcast they said he had elite shuttle and 3 cone times. That's a good checkmark when it comes to pass rushing.

    Seems like a nice kid. I was down on the pick at first because I hadnt heard of him, but I'm warming up to him.

    Not the prototypical NE pick.We are going to need bigger LB's it seems to me like. I hope this works out but, I'm having trouble seeing it right now...

    He looks like he has the frame to beef up a bit.

    I imagine the Fins felt they liked his measurables and attitude and think they can coach him up a bit.

    When we traded for Rosen we pushed our needs down a notch. The Patriots drafted a similar player with more productivity in Chase Winovich in between our traded pick and our pick for Van Ginkel. Our version had trouble generating pass rush outside of scheme-driven stunts. If that holds true at the NFL level, you may be right. But, Van Ginkel tested as well as Winovich, so hopefully we got a similar player.

    My gut impression on this kid is quite positive based on his motor
    + ability to work stunts loops lollypops and crossword puzzles!

    Yep. He's smart. Has significant giddy up. Notable upside.
    And impressive lochs!
