    McKenzie gave @henbeeney 2 votes of confidence this week. Words: "He showed more than enough that he can play" Actions: Didn't draft an ILB.

    Seems like the second round is Reggies reach round. Watson,MEJ,Jihad. Even Carr if you think about how many people thought about it.

    At his news conference, Red debunked the MEJ and Jirad comparison. He viewed MEJ as a plug-in-play player.

    Red agreed with you about the comparison to Watson. Red admitted Jihad is "raw." In both cases, Red valued size and athleticism over skill set and college production. Red quickly followed with the Al "coach-em up" mantra, and he doesn't expect a red-shirt year from Jihad. But I and others do.

    It took Mo Wilkerson a year to figure out the next level. It's hard playing DL in the NFL. And this guy is not coming out anything like Mo Wilkerson. Plus he has a knee.

    Jihad feels like a long-term, slow play. If we get 2nd round value, it will be down the road. That said, I'm hopeful he can rotate and be a specialist in the short term.
