I was thinking about that, he could be an effective blitzer up the middle like chad brown was. He has a way of winning those 1on1 battles against would-be blockers.
the more I think about it, the more I think the steelers are aiming for this guy. guard is pretty deep in the draft, and we could get someone better than kemo in the 2nd round. with burfict being an epic failure, the only options worth taking are hightower and kendricks. kendricks would be a project pick too, as ILB isn't his natural position (sorta like sylvester). Projects are all fine and dandy, but we will need someone who's ready to play sooner rather than later, which is why the hightower pick would make more sense.
