I have hesitated to share a thought because I wasn't sure how I felt about it but now that the draft is tomorrow I'd thought I would throw it out there. A month or so ago I was reviewing a couple of games of Kindle and I was impressed with his athletic ability. He has a good motor and is all over the field. But I also noticed that he rarely beat his man in the pass rush one on one. Most of his sacks were coverage sacks or just stupid QB play. The more I thought about it the more he reminded me, to a degree, of Dansby. At 6'2 250 Kindle is big and fast. But like Dansby he is not a great pash rusher. He could become one but he isn't yet. That comparison to Dansby made we wonder if Kindle would be more impactful inside. He brings most of the skills to the position Dansby had, but he is far more physical than Dansby, especially in the hole. I think as an ILB he is a potential pro bowl player in a few years.
I still wonder if it would be a wise move (a great pass rusher is perfered over a great ILB), but if the Cards did pick Kindle would they do it with an eye on the ILB....? Just a thought.
