Surprising IMO. RT @DBriggsBlade: Ryan Shazier said draft advisory board gave him a second-round grade. Still undecided.— Kyle Rowland (@KyleRowland) December 30, 2013
The grade is certainly surprising for people who have watched Shazier throughout his career (the kid can flat out play) but it appears the NFL's concerns about his lack of ideal linebacker size are real.
It will require some defensive ingenuity to keep Ryan Shazier's production at the next level in line with his college production, so it's a good thing the NFL is filled with brilliant defensive minds.
Shazier-to-the-pros has been assumed since before the season began, and it'd be quite the (welcomed) upset if he were to stay.
