    I would love to be in a position to draft this guy. And if not i hope he excels. He can literally beat you one handed. The drive it must take to make it to where he is... want that on our team!

    I didn't know who he was until I watched UCF and Auburn in their bowl game this past season. Kid was all over the field making plays for UCF. He was a straight beast in that game. I'll gladly take him on the Dolphins.

    i liked his inital draft stock, 5-7th a lot more haha. Wouldn't spend a third or probably a 4th on him, but i'd still do a 5th.

    From what I've read his CoD is not very good, hips are not very fluid. But his heart and drive is undeniable and you can't teach that stuff

    His change of direction is just fine.

    I have never watched this guy in a game. I bet tackling is rather tough when you can’t grip on to a guy with both hands but I am sure he has learned how to improvise. Love his work ethic, speed and desire. If he is there in the 4th round, he would be worth a look.

    I’d take him in the 4th and be happy. At least he didn’t blow his hand off with fireworks !!!

    I'd probably take him in the third or fourth.

    I am praying we end up draftin this guy. I'd take him round 3. Having a guy like this will chnage our entire defense.

    Imagine being on a defense where a guy with 1 hand is just balling out. you better get your *** on par and step your **** up.

    He moved from db to lb his junior year. In 2 years at lb he had 100 solo tackles, 66 assists, 33.5 tackles for loss and 28.5 sacks. I live in SFL and had the privilege of watching every one of his games last year. He is mad impressive. Tackeling is no prob for this guy. JPP adapted real quick too. I can't wait to see him in the NFL.
