People try and compare him to Greg Lloyd being as though they are similiar sized, but forget to take into account that when Greg Lloyd was drafted and in his prime there were very few 300+ lb O-Lineman. Never mind the 6'6" 340 lb behemoths of todays NFL....
Not to mention that Lloyd played pissed off every down.

However, maybe they are planning on using Timmons in coverage more often...if so you need a more athletic LB.
