That's one game against Alabama. They have an offensive line that NFL teams would love to have.
Like Walterfootball.com said, that shouldn't erase his college career.
The kid can play ball. That doesn't mean he will be a great linebacker in the NFL, it never does with any player in any position. I do think it would be worth the gamble if he is available when we pick.
