Watched some film on this guy and he hits pretty fricken hard. He received top honors in the CFL amongst his peers for the hardest hitter. He was also rookie of the year. I am not saying this guy will be good or even make the roster, but he looks to have promise, and he definitely hits hard in the film I've seen of him. We could use some thump back there to say the least. Time will tell.

Thanks for the read my friend.

I see these types of cats (Kenny Onatolu (sp)) more in the line of ST'rs than actual starters at LB'r.

Rationale for that thought can be attributed to an article I read when we picked Kenny up that read along the lines of how these guys had to cover more of the field in that league so they were naturally smaller/lighter and their skill set transitioned good into ST coverage guys but were really to small light to play LB'r at the next level.
