    • Plays middle linebacker in college but has the speed and athleticism to move to outside linebacker in the pros, a position many Rams fans wanted the organization to address early in the 2006 draft
    • Shows great toughness and leadership ability, specifically by playing through injury
    • Is a tackling machine who is always around the ball, wraps up well, and moves well sideline to sideline
    • Big hitter

    • Solid in coverage

    I agree. This guy is going to be a stud. He led the nation in tackles per game while playing with a broken hand, a sprained left knee, a sprained right foot, and a partial seperation in his right shoulder.
