I strongly believe that we need ILB depth and because of that, this is my new pet cat. He hasn't gotten much hype but Mychal Kendricks is an absolute stud.
Let's break it down:
39.5" vertical (best of LBs at combine)
10'7" broad jump (best of LBs at combine)
4.19 Short Shuttle (5th best of combine)
- Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2011
- 98 tackles, 3 sacks, 2 INTs in 2011
- 63 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 1 INT in 2010 (played as OLB for Cal)
This guy is the exact type of player we need. He would provide ILB depth as an exceptional athlete (perhaps better than Bruce Carter) and a guy with experience as a pass rusher for Cal. Rob Ryan would enjoy getting to innovate with Mychal Kendricks.
So, gentlemen and gentlewomen, here is my new pet cat and someone who I am sure is going to be your pet cat soon.
