JASON PHILLIPS:

this is a guy i like a lot.... hopefully round 3-4 we can get.

he's played for 4 years at TCU, disrupts the backfield, plays hard with lots of instincts. is a very good tackler and has solid speed and a good punch up front against blockers. an awesome leader and a great worker.

now he might struggle in coverage due to speed and also wont be the best blitzing linebacker too. but if you want a guy making play after play, and aggressively filling holes and getting into the backfield, this is the type of guy.

Like you said would probably struggle in coverage. He 's not a great athlete, get's by on intelligence and instincts. At 6'1" 234lbs, is he big enough to play in our scheme? Maybe, maybe not. Sounds like another guy we had here for 10+ years, Zach Thomas.

i do agree totally... dont like naming people under great players we've already had... .but he does remind me of a thicker Zach Thomas. Phillips is a sure tackler man, and i want to see how well his combine actually pans out (but that doesn't translate how well he'll play on the field too)
