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.
