I think you could have looked at similarly sized guys in the league, noted that most are a little slow for where the game is after a couple years( though they usually start really strong like Harris), and seen a real drop coming for him no matter what. He's good enough to be gone by the early 2nd, which is where a lot of those kind of guys seem to fall to year after year....Harris, Woodley (though as a DE/OLB), Spikes, and I just forgot who else but there's a couple others from recent years.
I mean its not just the whole fake girlfriend thing, Manti got exposed against Bama, he looked awful in that game
I don't know how much of an on field leader he is, but I assume that took a hit during the process. Lucky for him the Ravens, Steelers, maybe Jets, and pretty much every other 3-4 team could use an ILB, where he profiles well.
Edit: Oh yeah...Ryans...I think Goff or Lofton went in that early-mid second range...maybe both...I still feel like I'm missing others.
