Don’t focus on the game, the week is the most important part. Four practices, three hours each gives you a far better sample to evaluate. In the game he had a sack, but I must say that during the week, he exceeded expectations in my mind. He has gained weight, good weight, which is really important.

Also, he looked more flexible through the hips which was a concerned we have had all along with him. He was special during the week. He is so strong at the point of attack and will be a run ready player when he enters Alabama. His explosiveness impressed as well and he showed us more as an edge rusher than we initially felt he was capable of. He may be a best fit as a five-technique or “Jack” linebacker for the next level. He is smart and is only going to get better technically.

I must say, he was better than anticipated which was very pleasant to see.
