Terrel Bernard signed

I’m really eager to see If they plan on giving him snaps alongside Milano and Edmunds. He’s really effective in coverage and blitzing.  Seems like a great fit on 3rd and long

I hope that he can contribute beyond special teams.  He is very small for a NFL LB and isn’t super fast to make up for his lack of size.  I understand that he is very smart and a hard worker.

What? He’s fast and plays fast. He’s probably 10lbs undersized but if he plays at 6’ 230 lbs that’s decent enough size for our defense.

 

The best LB in football Darius Leonard probably plays at 220 lbs.

I wanna like the guy. I really do. He’s just so small! He’ll get swallowed up by Guards. Maybe a Poyer replacement??

I mean you don't have to be big to get past them though, as long as he can get there he can get there.

You act like D1 Guards are only 6 ft 250 lbs… but those NFL guards will be too much for him. The kid can play, you never know until you get to the league. 
 

The staff will use his strengths and play to those. He had 20 Tackles and 2 sacks in his final game, against those small guards at Ole Miss an SEC school.

Citing one undersized player who has excelled at the NFL shows that it can be done.  It doesn’t mean that being undersized isn’t a concern.

He has good speed and quickness, but not sure excellent speed and quickness. If he plays fast, that is important as well.

I hope he balls out for us, but drafting AJ Klein's replacement in the 3rd will always be an unsexy pick.  Did the Bills run a big nickel package at all last season?  Taron Johnson is a great slot corner so taking him off the field always feels like a bad idea.
