Bruce Irvin makes sense

by

Nicely done here from jsonline’s Tyler Dunne. Read up on this OLB prospect Bruce Irvin from West Virginia. While he had some impressive stats in college, the thing that clearly stands out to me is that this 6’2″, 245 pound dude apparently runs a 4.4 in the 40. (You know we’re in combine mode when 40 times are being thrown about.) For an OLB, 4.4 is unreal. This is as fast as guys like Nick Collins, and if you count his 4.37 40 time in junior college, as fast as guys like Tramon Williams. Quality coverage of TEs or even WRs might be a possibility for a guy like this. And having another relentless, super fast pass rusher opposite Mathews sounds like a dream scenario.

Sounds like the kind of player that might be worth trading up for.

    I actually happen to be friends with Bruce and run the fan website fauxbruceirvin.com. he has told me by combine time he will be 250 and run a 4.4. Guy is one of the most dedicated people I have ever met. When other kids where home on Christmas break last year he was still in the weight room every morning.

    I think he would love to play with Clay Matthews. He is a very hard worker and is a fan favorite. If you want to see some video of him just check out the site I posted.
