he is not the droid you are looking for.
I question the pick for 2 reasons.
1. I LOVE Shazier as a player, and we have a need at WLB. But does this fix our run defense? Yes, Shazier is an upgrade over Wheeler in pass coverage and can also be a terror on the blitz. However, Shazier won't be able to beat blocks with quickness alone like he did in college. He'll have to use his quickness to get to the proper spot and then engage at the point of attack with proper leverage. The scouts will have to be confident that he can do that and add a few more pounds on his frame.
2. Replacing Wheeler with Shazier is great, but now we still have Ellerbe at Mike. Was Ellerbe's bad year an abberation or is he just not suited for the middle? Can Shazier play the middle and have Ellerbe play the WLB like he did in the Raven's scheme? I'm not confident that keeping Ellerbe in the middle fixes the run defense.
I would play Shazier in the middle.
I'm calling it... The sudden Shazier stuff is a cover up, probably for c.j. mosley
