I love the guy who went 1 pick before us, and the guy who went 1 pick after us. I don't have any view at all on Bernard. Not saying he is a bad pick. I just haven't watched any of him. Did watch some Baylor defense for JT Woods' evaluation and I can't say he flashed to me in the course of that but I'll have to try and find some of his film to watch. 

Project him to be a special teamer but versatile to play inside and act as a safety in coverage over the middle.

He is a small Nickel LB with good instincts and an injury history

If they aren't picking a LB here to replace Edmunds they might as well have tried to get Dean to fill in for Milano or be the 3rd LB when we go out of nickel or dime.   I wouldn't take Dean to replace Edmunds but that doesn't mean I wouldn't have tried to take him if I was planning on taking a LB in the 3rd.

Undersized sub-package linebacker who is a tackling machine but can get wiped out by physical guys. Sounds like a Milano type. 

Yes, it does.  Almost makes you think they're preparing for Milano to go in favor of keeping Edmunds.   A real head scratcher.

More around why they need a back up for him? They can get out of Milano’s contract after this year… but he is not real expensive..

 

I’m scratching my head about this pick

I'll admit I don't know anything about this guy.  He may turn out to be a fine player.  But, if you wanted to get an undersized LB that can run, why not trade up a handful of spots and get Dean?  Oh well......  We'll see what happens.  Some people are saying he is just like Milano.  Time will tell.

Sigh.  May as well join the perpetual flamethrowers and trolls.    Not happy with this pick.

 

Joe Schoen, please come back!  (kidding, kiddiing)

Does he have a relative that coaches on our team???

I thought that but then remembered they kicked the can on Milano's deal this spring... so there is no easy out next year.

He is 6'1" maybe they think he can fill out a little more?
