Why He’s Here On The List: Human beings just aren’t this big, this athletic, and this skilled. While there might be concerns over whether or not he can maintain his weight, good luck getting around him, and forget it once he locks and and has to bring the power. He might not be for everyone, but he’s an anchor.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Just don’t be brutal in the drills. No one is looking for a fluid defensive back type of workout, but as long as he doesn’t stand out for anything lumbering or bad, he’ll be just fine.
Bottom Line: There’s more boom-or-bust here than many will think. He might have the mass, but he’s not all that far off from being way too big. Considering he’s a top 20 overall prospect in a strong first round, he’s a wee bit of a risk if he doesn’t move quickly enough in the drills. He’s an NFL starter, but he was also a top player on a Cardinal line that couldn’t do anything to protect the quarterback.
