Dont mistake me. I do love the pick and I did watch the tape. Did you spot the missed tackles? 

 

Probably correctible by Bills coaches and yes I do agree he is good value.

Yeah he misses tackles, and if you watch closely all LBs do.  Im a Florida alum and watched him his entire career.  I thought him and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson were their best defensive players on a consistent basis this past year.  Polite was really good but would disappear sometimes.  

 

I really think he is a perfect situational OLB that could be sent to blitz (especially blindside) or cover TEs this year and could step in for Milano really well if there is an injury.  He has a lot of instinct and big play ability, and plays his best in big situations.  Does he make mistakes and is he in need of work?  No doubt, but he will be a guy you want on the field when it matters.

McDermott does like wrestling

That or MMA!

I am defensive minded...love this kid already. Speed, Twitching and he is aggressive! I really hope he develops well and responds to coaching. This is what I have been talking about. We need to get after people!

Yes...we can see where he over pursues and misses tackles. Nothing that experience and coaching can't fix. Just like Singletary he is sudden...you don't coach that. If he adds a few pounds of muscle he can be a force. I love linebackers, and this kid is special.

Loved this guy at Florida, he's a violent linebacker that controls it and plays within the rules. Could use another 10 pounds or so to get to that desired linebacker size while maintaining his speed. Only problem is his inconsistency, but that can be fixed.

Are you trolling? His game is nothing like Spikes. Not even remotely similar.

 

Lol yes I literally saw UF and was like oh Brandon Spikes

 For the fifth round this pick is great!  Weaknesses mostly correctable.  Upside very high!

POWER BOMB.    Courtesy of Captain Insano!

 

I really like this pick.   Kid has great range and crazy closing speed.    Zo's got one more year but this kid will get a LOT of snaps this year.    Joseph, Edmunds and Milano our LB speed and range have doubled.

This was a really solid pick. We have a stable of backup linebackers who all generally play near the L.O.S.; old school types.

 

They needed a developmental guy with the athleticism to drop into coverage. Depth was not good at LB.

good of you to man up : )

This is the guy that can take down Brady. put him in a package  the first game we play NE,  with no tape on him Pats will be surprised how quick he shows up to the play lol.

 and yes Coaching will fix most of his negatives

So I was out at lunch yesterday with my family, because my wife would not let me watch the draft all weekend long.  We we're in a restaurant and my son pointed out a player on the screen whose highlights were him absolutely laying guys out, hit after hit. I said please let that be our draft pick. Turns out it was. I hope he puts in the work and develops in to the type of player in the pros that he appears to have been in college.

To quote the coach in Major League: "that's good. I like to see that kind of spirit in a player."

You can see the intriguing athletic traits on tape.  When he shoots his gun, it's a blur.  Really like him as a blitzer.  But he has a lot of bad tape.  Hope he can clean it up.

Love this pick, LB was a depth need and this certainly fills it. Give him a year to learn the system and get comfortable with the pro-game before he gets a shot to start. Great value in the 5th too. My third favorite pick in the draft.
