Sounds like this guy finds it easy to point the finger at others and has a hard time controlling his "instincts."

If we all just followed our instincts, many of us would end up in jail.

I see a big upside and a very big downside with this guy.

Personally, I'd pass on him. Our defense is targeted by the refs enough as is.
This is where I am at too. He isnt disciplined, takes himself out of position at times to try and make big plays. Mayock said he "ran around a lot of blocks" this season on tape. Bruce Davis ran around a lot of blocks and didnt take on the blocker either.
