    Have you seen this guy?. Outside ZLB for Scott Frost's undefeated UCF team.

    He was conference defensive player of the year, and in the running for it this year. He's strong, athletic, and fast.

    I've watched him at the Senior Bowl practices, and he's looked good.

    And, he's only got one hand. Due to a birth defect, his left hand had to be amputated @ 4 years old.

    What is a travesty, is that he has not received an invite to the scouting combine.

    This guy has more heart and talent than most players playing now. He tore up Auburn in their bowl game. He forces fumbles, makes interceptions, and is a top prospect.

    Guess people ignore the talent. I think he could be a good linebacker in the NFL. I've seen players play one handed with a club hand.

    This guy deserves a chance.

    Bring him in, some guys on our defense tackle with no hands so this is an improvement.

    while i'm all for overcoming adversity, not so sure I would like to draft a guy with 1 hand who's job is to tackle, maybe i'm a jerk

    that's fine, it'd be different if he did it in a power 5 school, but he didnt, so i remain skeptical

    Cyprien's hand touching the ankle of defenders didn't seem to bring them down.

    His brother ran a 4.38 at the combine. I suspect that he will have a very good showing as well. Based on his performance and ability, he's a 1st round pick. And that's not even in the, "If he had two hands, he'd be really good" sense. He was a really good player irregardless.

    Youre out of your mind if 1.) you think this kid has 4.3 speed, and B.) if anyone is paying a 1st round pick for a man without one of his hands.

    Im a fan, I fully support the Titans employing him is some way, but not by using a 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th round pick. You have to know how the draft is played, a person with a physical limitation is not getting drafted before the 5th round, if at all.

    I wasn't saying that we should draft him in the first. I'm saying that he stood out the way that a first round player would. It would be shocking to see him run a 4.3, but he's still very athletic, and per reports by those at the Senior Bowl, he is a standout.
