    I never like trading up, but a linebacker is a linebacker and I like linebackers.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Sounds like he's an impressive athlete, but a project.

    Seems like a solid pick

    Should have gone a little higher

    People may have worried about his size or something

    I've read the knocks on him are instincts/technique.

    6'2" 250 is solid for an inside linebacker, especially the 250. He runs 4.7, and has good agility, so I don't really think the inch of height he lacks is overly concerning.

    It was only one 7th rounder.
