Default Re: Cal LB Mychal Kendricks

london fletcher in terms of size but the comparison ends there.

i do agree he gets bullied inside when guards/tackles get through the d-line (mostly on pulls/traps)
but playing behind an elite NT and DE's he could be SCARY good.

pro's:

the kid flat out flies to the ball
heavy hitter/tackle who can jar the ball loose
intelligent
work ethic/effort on every play
ball carrier goes down upon contact
great speed/athleticism
best cover LB in the draft
position flexibility
talented pass rusher
3 down backer regardless of scheme

cons:
instinctive but guesses to much
overly aggressive at times
gets pushed around when OL lock onto him
does not use his low center well and loses leverage fights
whiffs ocassionally
short and can be thrown over to taller TE's/WR's

id still take him every single time if hes there when we pick in the 2nd. maybe even trade up to get him. the pros far outweigh the cons.
