Strikes me as a big time sleeper. I don't see him on too many draft sites and he's barely even mentioned in general, but I really liked what I saw of him (great ball skills, impressive tackler for the position). What's your opinion?
I agree, he stepped up the last couple seasons and played well. Led our squad in tackles. Not great at anything, but solid through and through. A good leader too. We had an ugly moment at the end of our bowl game where one of our young DLs took a swing at a prone OL on the ground after the final whistle, and Omar was the first guy there to pull him away. He gets it.
And I was waiting for Mario to go last season. Kid can play. Had a couple classes with him, he's a really down to earth guy. Really pretty short, so I wasn't sure he could be an ILB in the pros, but he can move very well, and put on some muscle, up to 257. The Colts signed him last week to a 3 year deal because he's been busting his ass after the Steelers cut him.
