    Agreed. Check out UCLA's Cassius Marsh and USC's Morgan Breslin. They fit that mold too.

    I think Shazier has special talent...talent that only comes along every few years in the draft. He is growing into being as good as he is talented. I see him as a splash playmaker...a Troy kinda guy who can make plays all over the field and disrupt. A team will build a D around him.

    As for Boren, obviously less upside...doesn't move east/west as smoothly as I would like in an ILB. With that said, he has been one of my favorite Buckeyes for years due to his physical play...loved him at FB. He blows people up. He has filled in nicely at ILB...and seems to have a nose for the ball. He is more than physical enough to fulfill a traditional thumper role. He is a great tackler. Looked a little awkward in coverage but seemed to have enough speed to hang. I see a team taking a chance on him in the 4th. I hope the Steelers are that team because I think he can develop.
