He is very strong, but doesnt have that length and speed off the edge. He seems like he will add weight and be a DE. Still new to the game as he is from France

Only started playing football in 2015.  In France, he played soccer and boxed as well as studying judo and karate.

 

May graduate.  Four years to play three.


He's gonna be a kicker.  Hey, who knows.  :-)

He will be a OLB (RE-OLB) IMO and to me is very similar to Garrett Nelson.    Reported as running in the low 4.6 range which I would assume is hand-timed so runs a 4.8 electronic.   I do not see him as a 3-4 DE but I suppose they might have him do that in third and forever?   He can put his hand down as a 4-3 RE for sure if they want him to play that technique.  Don't we do that on occassion?  We need OLB's that are physically ready to play so okay with this pickup.

 

I like the fact that he is a former soccer/boxer/mixed martial arts guy.    Soccer players learn how to take good angles.   They are always running so they understand conditioning and they have good feet.  Boxing is a good indicator that the guy is not afraid to hit and take a blow.   Mixed martial arts is the same plus it adds the wrestling aspect where leverage concepts come into play as well as shooting for legs which translates to a quick first step in football.

That is hilarious, you got me there.

 

But what is not legit is Nebraska and taking players that they should not be taking.

This post is 4 years too late.

He looked like he had pretty good coverage skills for a 255 lb linebacker and the fact that he's into judo and karate is definitely intriguing.  As far as knowing how to use his hands which one would think would apply to football also when it comes to disengaging blocks, swim moves/technique etc.
