This will be another good test of the different values placed on game film and combine scores. Should be interesting to follow.
I'm not too surprised. I think Laurinitis is quick, but not fast. He has burst speed, but over distance, I don't think so. I did see that the mean time for a ILB like Laurinitis is something like 4.8, so he's not on the radar for a red flag.
