    Don't know much about this guy to be honest, can he cover tight ends? If so, I will be satisfied with this pick

    Fast, coverage ability, rangy. Not a great tackler and lacks aggression.

    Hopefully vravel can coach him up, but he's likely to be our best coverage linebacker

    Didn't see this coming. Inside back makes sense but some help in the secondary or o line would have been nice.

    They say he's sideline to sideline, but most other years good rangey LBs usually go early in the first round. It's a weird year though that's been heavily focused on offense.

    Needed someone to replace Cush who unfortunately is past his prime.

    He isn't a good tackler that's kind of a problem for a guy to go in the first round haha

    He fell due to his size and inconsistent tackling ability. Dude can cover but needs to work on his technique.

    Maybe he's not a great tackler in the sense that good tackling form is kind of a lost art anyways.

    Uh oh, if Skip starts praising everything the Texans do, it can't be good.

    Are we just planning for life after Cushing? Or is there anyway that McKinney, Cushing, Cunningham, and perhaps even Brian Peters can all play together now?

    That's odd to me. Are they talking pass rusher?

    Maybe we didn't think he would be available. Need some help on OL still.
