Kiper: Where Shazier comes off the board

Posted by Chris Brown on April 29, 2014 – 9:11 am

Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier is arguably the fastest linebacker in the draft after clocking a sub 4.4 40 time at his pro day and tweaking a hamstring in the process. As we profiled on Buffalobills.com today Shazier is the modern day linebacker capable of playing all three downs with the athleticism to handle multiple roles. So where does he come off the board? ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper had his take on when Shazier hears his name in the 2014 NFL draft.

“Ryan Shazier I like because he’s a run around guy. He doesn’t always want to take on, but he can sift through traffic, very instinctive,” said Kiper. “Gives you plenty of versatility, he can be a will and inside linebacker in a 3-4. I think he’s a borderline first, early second.”

Shazier was also a pre-draft visitor of the Bills and is a good bet to be a second round consideration for Buffalo if he’s still on the board.
