something tells me this guy knows what he's talking about
Every time I watch RF's film I see former Alabama LB Prince Hall. Prince was a good college MLB for the Kines system but couldn't handle the responsibilities of playing in the middle in Saban's defense.
While his highlights look great and he looks like a ball hawk when he was junior, I see a guy that plays a little reckless. He doesn't seem to have much on field discipline and get himself in to bad positions. His athleticism when he was younger allowed him to be able to recover. However, his lack of work ethic and his expanding waist line have made his recklessness an even bigger liability.
Prince Hall was a good player. So, comparing him to Prince isn't an insult. That's just the guy he reminds me of the most.
That is also why I don't see him ever being able to play either the Mike or Will at Alabama. I think he needs to go to TAMU or LSwho where his aggressive style of playing the MLB position will fit in better. At Alabama our coaching staff would have to completely rebuild him from the ground up: his approach to working out, his playing style and most likely his dedication to preparation.

RF reminds me of Nico with not as much sideline to sideline coverage. I saw the game to its entirety against Carver. I was shocked that RF was.mainly effective when he blitzed. Carver single blocked.him and ran directly at him all night. He don't have the.speed.or maybe the motivation to be the best in the country from the one.game I saw. He can't cover or react fast enough in pass coverage at this point. He is not a must have in my opinion. As a fan of high school and college football, I am not impresses at all with RF.
