    Hybrid safety/linebacker. Plays more of a STUD with 5 DB's on the field. Has fantastic length...can run, cover and hit.

    I had actually googled him to look him up when I saw that weight wondering if he was converted DB or if he just hadn't added any mass since being recruited. I would still think with that frame he would need to add a little bulk unless he moved full time DB, that's seans smith size coming out of college

    It's certainly possible or even likely that he's added weight and may be up around 220 now. These weights are from last spring. We'll know more about his weight after the summer as we get into fall camp.

    no point in us having a long convo about a player that we have no clue what they will look like just cause I mention his size. but anyways as always we always appreciate your draft insight.

    Telvin Smith is only 218. Light LBs are the future. Even the present

    IDK, I tend to think the future is whatever offenses dictate.

    Fair point. I could see the NFL going back to ground and pound. They could own alot of small defenses that way

    Bobby Okereke is one of the most athletic Senior linebackers I've seen in this class with excellent length and wrap up tackling skills. Very similar skillset to Fred Warner in last year's linebacker crop.

    If you want to see some of the best linebacker tape put on so far this season - watch Germaine Pratt vs Boston College. Kid has the hips of a cornerback.

    He's really fun to watch. Was coming here to talk about him, but I see you already have him as the #1 Senior. He's definitely the best that I've seen. Fluid, strong, instinctive - have to love his length, too.

    He's the most fluid linebacker I've seen among the Seniors. Followed by Okereke.

    These other kids like Coney and Edwards are much, much stiffer athletes. They're all like boats trying to change directions in the water compared to those two.

    Definitely agree. Haven't focused on Okereke as much, but his ability to move stands out.

    Loved Josh Allen last year, and he looks even better (noticeably bigger and stronger) in 2018. Don't know of many players doing more for their defenses than Allen - blur off the edge, great motor, can cover.

    Don't know why more people aren't talking about Justin Hollins. Have to agree that apart from Allen, he's the best pass-rushing LB of the Seniors - also like his versatility. Day 2 looks realistic.

    With regard to stand-up LB's, Cal's Jordan Kunaszyk looks good to me. Think his speed (would guess 4.7's) likely keeps him out of the first two days, but he's pretty fluid and sees the field really well - also has a good frame.
