    Ok so OLB isn't a need, therefore it's not worth addressing with our top 2 or 3 picks, but in the event Southern Mississippi's Jamie Collins is there in the 3rd (we'll have two 3rd rounders), we would be foolish not to take him.

    As of now he's ranked as the 7th OLB, and can also play DE. At 6'4" 250 he's a tweener. But his size and freakish athleticism isn't what intrigues me. It's how much of a great tackler he is. All last year we watched as Titan after Titan failed to wrap up.

    Here's a nice graphic working in his favor

    Just throwing this guys name out there so when we select him you'll all have heard his name before.

    his play in that highlight didnt impress me all that much, yes he made most of his tackles but he got pushed back quite a bit and not always by a bigger lineman, and his burst at first isnt the best. i like that he sheds his blocks decently well but im going to remain neutral on my view about him for now till i see more

    Bruce Irvin clone, not as tough. I think he'll go earlier than you think, early second round. You can't teach speed, bend.
