    I don't think that, I don't think he is going to be as good as his brother, I just think he was a beast at Oregon, and would be a nice pick in the 4th-5th round.

    On Tulloch, he was on the field alot in soft zone prevent defense looks. Go back and look at the redskins game. Most coaches do not keep the MLB on the field in passing situations, so alot of the coverages issues are coaching related. Grey will stop all of that. Like Tully but not for alot of cash

    Clay has said he's actually the least naturally gifted athlete of the family, but his work ethic and love for the game trumps any lack of ability. Clay is still much better than Casey. One was a top player, the other may not even be drafted.

    Clay was never really the top dawg in college, he was usually the #4. SC had incredible LB's and he had to out hustle them all. Maualuga, Cushing, Maiva and Matthews - Beasts. He's still learning and getting better. He was my personal 2009 Titans 1st round pick, but we took Britt instead. Green Bay took a flyer and it paid off nicely.

    Casey is similar, but not the same. He actually was recruited and got a scholarship whereas Clay was a walk-on. He's smart, fast, determined, a bit undersized, but he can play all 3 slots and will continue to get better. I'd take a flyer in round 2 or 3 on him. Uncle Bruce and Cousin Kevin will probably help him too.

    You'd take him in the 3rd!? I'm seeing him being projected as a 7th rounder...

    Nah, he's not going to drop that far. He'll go 3rd or 4th round....maybe late 2nd.

    I feel his talents make him a 4th rounder, but his name and head for the game will have someone pull the trigger sooner than I would. We already have guys inside who dissect plays well, what we're lacking from an ILB is sideline to sideline speed.

    Funny thing is......and this could be a reach.....IMO, he possibly could transition to a strong safety. He might be too big, but he's got the speed and smarts. Perhaps a hybrid type player SS/LB. He'd fit very well with a team like Indy.

    His high 4.7 40, and stiff hips say he won't be a good safety. His inability to get off blocks says he wont be a great ILB. I'd keep him at ILB and hope where ever he lands has good DT's to eat up the big boys. What's nice about him is his willingness to learn. If he can't beat you physically, he'll out think you. IMO that's a great quality for a LB. he's the kind of guy who will show up in the A gap only to force you into the B gap, then gets you. He's good at playing peek-a-boo, helped him slow Cam Newton down in the National Title game.
