...as a joke, right?
I'm kidding. I wouldn't mind getting this kid... in the 3rd-4th rd.
Would be a steal if he's there in the 2nd. A young linebacker core of Ellerbe/Te'o/Wheeler would make our defense scary.
Scary as in I'd be scared if any SEC running back was lined up across from him? Or scary watching him try to cover Hernandez or Gronkowski scary?
Scary as in we'll be laughing at every team that passed on him because of some stupid fake girlfriend scandal scary.
Scary as in this MLB made more turnovers or plays "happen" than our 2nd most overpaid middle linebacker in the league did in the last 3 years (dansby).
Forget about the ex girlfriend stuff and he is a "go getter" in the 2nd round if available.
I put a lot of weight on the psychological element of performance, especially in a team sport. I wouldn't take him until the 3rd round.
He won't make it past the first, though.
I've spoken before on this forum about my feelings on Te'o (I don't like him as a first round pick). I don't really see what makes him 3 rounds better than someone like A.J. Klein who's predicted to go around the 4th; both lack ideal athleticism but have made plays consistently in college and Klein is actually bigger and quicker.
