This dude is an absolute monster. I don't let characteristics lead the process in evaluating a football player. Ray Lewis wasn't fast, but he have the instincts and smarts to get it done. I I wouldn't mind giving up a 4th rounder for that guy. He tries to run through the ball carrier on every play. He may need to put on a couple pounds, but he's fully talented!

I looked at a bit of video of Kiko yesterday. That guy does look plenty talented. Quick, fast and aggressive. Considering our glutton of LB's at the moment though, why are we looking at LB's and QB's when we basically have starting holes at OG, FS and numerous backups to fill?

I agree, but it has more to do with draft value meaning, they're looking at the value of late round prospects.

Fair enough. Maybe a converted guys into a FS or something. Or, just quality depth with a chance to develop. Or, we switch to a 3-4 next year and incorporate him in as a rusher.
