    DE from Purdue, anyone seen much of him? I caught one game and he looked like a quick, good athlete. He has 26.5 TFL's and 10.5 sacks so far. He also has 85 tackles.

    Not sure if there's any top 5 DE's this year, but there seems to be some guys to be later that could be good :yes:

    Right now it looks like he is going to be a 1st day pick........He is pretty athletic and has good size although he could add some pounds......He is in the mold of a 3-4 LB or 4-3 DE.....like D-Ware

    Well...

    From my info, he's looking like a 2nd rndr with potential. I have him as a shade under 6'3 and about 265lbs. The fastest 40 I have for him is 4.63.

    I haven't seen any Purdue but the 2 thins I like about his numbers (besides sacks) are TFL and FF. If we don't take a DE in rnd one or FA, he might be a nice prospect to consider in rnd 2.

    Of course, if he impresses...he might jump into the end of rnd 1 or very early rnd 2. But of course, this is speculation. I'll have a better opinion after I see him.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see him slip into rnd 1 especially if he shows that he can play standing up and be an OLB in a 3-4 like some have suggested. But I haven't seen Purdue play at all.

    3-4 Outside Linebacker

    Every draft site and scouting service has him as almost certain to be a 3/4 Outside linebacker. The listed 265 weight is generous at best.

    Our RDE's have been light before....and still are. I'll take a 245lb Kearse. If he can rush the passer, that outweighs weight. Pun intended? :yes:

    Well...

    Ppl I trust say he weighed in at 262 lbs last year. Not sure if he's added or lost since then. Again, I haven't seen him yet.

    Every DE who weighs less than 270lbs is seen as a tweener. One of the best DE's in the NFL weighs LESS than 250lbs. It can be done. More importantly, there are many light DE's in the 265-270 range who don't get abused vs the run.
