Telvin Smith - 6'3 and 218, built like a WR. Could develop in a couple years. We don't have that long.
Jordan Tripp - Who the heck knows? From his 5 minutes of game video I've managed to find, he doesn't appear to take angles very well. That's all I got.
Howard Jones - Played DE for Div. II Shepherd. I don't think I need to go any further.
Subpackage LBs need to do what they do best, cover. There's no reason to suggest that Tripp, Pierre-Louis, or Telvin Smith couldn't do so. Especially not from their projected round, or light in the pants size. And I was talking about Christian Jones of FSU. He has fluid footwork and is solid in coverage.
