He ran a 4.69 40, thats actually not that bad for a OLB (in fact it might be top 50% atleast). I am excited to see what he can do for us as a OLB standing up.
Regarding Ballard's moves, I lean on something I read on one of the articles. Before you can get to a top 10 defense, you need to be average first. To be average first, you need to have solid depth at every position on the defense. Ballard is doing it the right way. Elevating the depth of the team and then sprinkling our defense with an entire draft class of defensive players. Imagine how competitive training camp is going to be! If all these moves provide solid depth and if we can find atleast 2-3 starters on defense (CB, ILB, NT to name a few) then we will be fine on our way to being average next year. It is a two year process at the very least. Lets be patient.
There is no point in paying Minter or Poe for one year when we need to think about our starting lineup after 2 years.
