    The most impressive number in there for me is the 3 cone drill,, shows he should be able to rush the passer if asked to do it.

  • that and the vertical jump out to me, no pun intended

    Agree on both of those. For a 256 lb dude to get 1/2" away from a 40" vertical is crazy. Defensive coordinators are dreaming tonight.

  • He definitely looks bigger since the Las Vegas Bowl. It looks like he made himself a lot of money today. Couldn’t happen to a better kid.

  • He did great in the mobility drills. Great performance by a 255 lb guy. They all keep wondering why he did not play earlier in his career. Seems to me that size wise he just blew up in the last year or so and injuries early on.

  • Not going to write down all the stats but LVE matched up very very well with Urlacher, Kuechly and Lee's combines. Went back and looked at the combine scores for them. Was 2lbs lighter than Urlacher but taller and longer than all . His scores were on par or better than all 3 with the one caveat on bench. I would argue overall better ( LVE homer not withstanding). Looks like he averaged out in the top 5 overall. Pretty damn good for a dude that big that is only going to mature and get even better. LVE to Dallas @ #19 for a declining Lee?

    He was playing behind another athletic freak, Joey Martarano, who was also a year older and showed up more refined (and on scholarship.)

  • I'm happy for LVE. Great numbers! I'll miss seeing him terrorize the MWC next season.

    I don’t recall LVE ever playing behind Joey as they played different positions. In 2016, Joey was battling for playing time against Lee and Maeva at Mike LB. LVE was in the #2 spot behind Weaver at Will LB.

  • Ditto. Vertical jump of 40 inches is ridiculous especially for a man weighing 256 lbs., and his 3-cone drill of 6.88 sec is equally impressive. I bet that a lot of position players' 3-cone drills were slower than 6.88 sec.

    On top of that, I am sure that LVE killed it in the meetings with teams, will kill it at his pro-day, and kill it when he meets with individual teams as well. The only question left in my mind is which team which draft LVE in the first round.

    Better yet, how about the 49ers trade down from #9 to say #15, and take LVE to replace their linebacker who has been arrested 3 times in the span of 18 months (:

    Another good point for LVE. He is a high character guy that will not embarrass the team and organization he plays for.

  • LVE had a great combine, and it looks like he's secured his position as a first rounder. The lingering question about him is the fact that he was a starter for only one season--just that he came out of the blue--and much of the NFL scouting mentality is going with known quantities. The more they see of LVE, the more they interview him and the coaching staff, they will see that he has a high, high ceiling. He's going to be an immediate starter, an immediate impact player, and if he stays healthy (true of any player), he could be something special at the next level.

    About his career at Boise State, he played only six games his sophomore year, and that was due to injury. His breakout games, actually, were at the end of the season against AFA (with seven solo tackles and a pick) and Baylor (he was the only defensive player, it seemed, who showed up for the game), where he made six solo tackles. Also, he was playing behind Ben Weaver at WLB, who had more than 40 starts in his Bronco career, and who was second-team All MWC in 2016. Given that LVE was hurt for most of 2016, and given that he was behind a guy who was nearly a 4-year starter, it's not surprising that his playing time was limited.

  • LVE will be in Boise for Pro Day. From a recent report in the local paper it was noted he will be doing drills but not the 40. He was happy with his combine...wonder why... GO BRONCOS!!!!!flex weights weights_bar cool
