    If you watch the highlights on the web about all possible first round LBs and CBs, there are no standouts for LB. Ayers is slow and doesnt show much in pass coverage and Miller would not fit in the Leos scheme. CB has 13th pick talent in the first and I hope the pick is Harris but if Prince falls to 13 which I dont believe will ever happen then they jump on the pick quick. Petersen will be gone for sure but if hes not I would still pick Prince.

    • I agree with you. I think some of the more realistic candidates are in the later rounds. The 3-4 defense has changed what teams are looking for in a LB’r. Don’t sleep on Ayers though, he has very deceptive speed. His size makes him look slow but he can move, he’s one of those fluid athletes. The kid is just under developed IMO. That’s part of the reason i say he is raw. He should develop more muscle and power and with that more burst. he doesn’t look explosive but I think he has the upside to develop that in a year or two of NFL strength and conditioning. I think with proper coaching he should develop into a solid prospect as a 3-4 OLB or 4-3 SLB. He has the athletic ability and size, just needs to grow into his body some and develop the muscles more. He can get there with hard work.
