I, too, am hoping for great things out of Shazier....the more I find out about him, the more I like him.
But I'm concerned about his durablity/size at ILB...Yes, he may weigh in at around 240, but when I watch video of him, he sure doesn't LOOK that big...looks more like an NFL safety than a LB (size-wise).
Franchise Bell; extend Brown; re-sign Harrison, D. Williams, and Matthews; sign the best of the available 2nd-tier FA help at Edge, ILB, CB, and maybe FS. Hope that Ladarius Green is healthy.

Like you, I supported Timmons... I was happier that they selected Woodley. I, too, call a spade a spade... but, when I can actually SEE it.
I never, not once watched this kid play. I did watch Ohio State, but, wasn't looking for him. So, it would be silly to speak on something I don't know about.
90% of the people complaining are in the same boat (except, they're complaining anyway). Of the 10% who did watch looking specifically at him, 90% of them have no eye for NFL talent... not the kind I want drafting MY players. If you're in the remaining one percent who watched looking for him, know what you're watching and can adequately rate talent, that's impressive. But, even those guys miss - you can look at any NFL draft and realize that.
Again, I'm reserving judgement.

Regardless of what position he plays or if he's 235 or 240 lbs I just see an amazing player in those highlight films. WTH is everyone not seeing? I swear the internet has blinded folks in seeing what's reality. He looks pretty F'in good to. I want play makers, not story lines or BS. Let the kid learn and improve. I agree with Ruthless on this aspect. What more can you ask for? Jeez.
And who knows maybe he will move to SS like Carnell Lake did. He looks like a splash play maker in the mold of the new Seahawks D.
