Here is his Insider scouting report:

He isn't an explosive player . . . but plays hard and wins with toughness, technique and aggression. He is a solid reactor and understands angles and how to leverage the football. He uses his hands well to ward off and separate from blockers and stays active to the pile. He [is] a solid open field tackler. He [is] limited in man schemes and is best in short zone coverage's. Ayodele is a good football player but appears to have reached his ceiling . . . but brings experience, toughness and stability to the position.

So I guess we're putting some ILBs into a rotational role then. Interesting.

He was a quality NFL linebacker not too long ago. I haven't paid much attention to him in recent years though.

Yup, but since we didn't address the position in the draft we clearly needed to bring someone in.

The Dolphins were very disappointed in him last year. So disappointed, they released him and brought in 6 new LBs. I think you will be disappointed also.

Quality competition at least. He may not start, but he will at least provide quality competition.

That would be OK. I thought Davis played well, last year...

Yeah, McD did, too. He said in his presser that they released Davis because they thought he was a starter or nothing. Not a special teams guy. So, they released him to open a spot at SSLB for Ayers and move Haggan over to ILB.

The insider profile's fairly dead on. He's not flashy and has a bit of a ceiling (he won't be hitting 90 tackles anytime soon) but he's solid.

In 2 seasons with Miami: 118 Tackles with 27 Assists (1 assist for every 4 tackles) and can make plays. 2 INT and 1 FR in 2008 and 1 FF with 2 FR in 2009.

One thing I like is that he rarely has a lot of assists, which hurt his overall tackle totals, but also show that he's capable of making a fair amount of solo tackles rather than being late to a play and getting that assist in a 2-3 man tackle.
