    It's a good thing players aren't picked by appearance alone because if that was the case the HoF would be half empty.

    he looks like he's the size of a freshman in college not a 3 year NFL athlete

    The guy is in better shape than me and plays at the NFL level. So it's hard to criticize too much... But if I saw Shea walking on the beach, I wouldn't immediately think football player. I expect more muscle mass even with body fat >15%. Even his neck isn't wide/thick like you would expect a DE in the NFL.

    He is really showing commitment to the change. I am excited to see how this season comes together for him

    I agree they screwed this up big time. As far as his commitment he does not have much choice, he has proven he can not play DE well at NFL level. Hopefully he is a beast or at a minimum shows enough promise to get another shot after this year. He deserves it after being played out of position,.

    Prophetic huh? You really have to wonder what made them think they could ever make a LDE out of him. I think they kid can be a good LB but how good no one knows yet. Hopefully enough to justify the pick.

    As for his build let's remember this kid is a cobra not a python. He needs to be very quick and wiry strong, not bulky strong. That was Emery biggest mistake. He thought they could get him up to 265-270 and he simply doesn't have the frame for that. It's easy to see that in those pics.

    Looking at the pic, I can see now why he could only manage 19 reps on bench press at the combine. I hope this works, but I have my doubts. Speed means nothing if they are running straight at him like last year.

    Singletary wasn't fast and neither were Morrissey , Rivera or Hillenmeyer ( to name a few ) . There are others on different teams also . I think he'll be just fast enough and he has good instincts so let's see what happens.
