Ray Lewis changed the Ravens.
Troy Polly changed the Steelers.
Reggie White Changed the Packers.
LT changed the Giants.
That special play on defense can change a team.
This kid is coming into a great situation.
#1 He has a few very solid vet leaders with skills around him.
Howard and Lawson both are very good players.
#2 He is coming into a situation with a coach that gets the most out of his players.
#3 He is not being asked to do anything out of the ordinary.
#4 He is a big fan of Marvin (nobody said he was smart)
It is a no risk gamble here.
A great linebacker with a nasty streak...
This kid is not some out of control trouble maker and according to the SI story, he was never in trouble off the field.
He is a homebody that plays video games during his down time.
You are correct, it is a tad bit nuts to get excited about any player his rookie year, but Denver got a linebacker last year that made that defense that much better.
With the front 4 they have and this guy in the middle, it will be hard to move the ball vs the Bengals.
