Former Redskins GM Charlie Casserly likes the WFT pick at 19 of Kentucky linebacker Jamin Davis.
WFT “got the bat on the ball,” says current NFL Network analyst Casserly.
“I like him. Three-position guy in the 4-3 defense. There are not a lot of guys who can do that,” Casserly told The Sports Junkies. “I guess they’re gonna line him up at Sam, which would be your on-the-line-of-scrimmage linebacker. At least that’s what I call it. With them, he’ll play off the line, too.”
“Athletic guy. Instincts. Finds the football. Can slip blocks, make plays at or near the line of scrimmage,” he said. “But he’s also a cover guy and you’ll see him I think in third-down packages early on. Very good zone awareness. Has the athletic ability to play man. He’s not an under-the-radar guy because I had him as a late first-round pick.”
“They filled a need. Solid pick,” Casserly said. “They got the bat on the ball. It’ll be interesting to see how they follow through, if they keep staying with the best player or if they move to most needed player.”
