AJ Klein plays smart because he is smart. NFL Draft Zone interview

27 posts in this topic

Klein is a stud.  I've heard people say that he doesn't look fluid or as quick as some of the linebackers taken earlier, but all the videos I've seen of him give me a different impression.  One day when Klein and Kuechly are both starters maybe we can dub them "the braintrust".

I was very happy we drafted this guy, not many people were talking about LB depth but I ALWAYS have TD's knee in my mind EVERY time he makes a play lol.

I wish I could say that I didn't, but alas, I do too.

Man I'm comfortable with our backup LB's..Beason or TD goes down, Blackburn and AJ Klein could pick up right where they left off.

Hahaha the change of heart in this thread is amazing... 85% of the huddle's response when this guy was drafted was "another linebacker?"

 

Oh how things change.

Jesus, because it’s Jesus. Isaac Newton because I would just like to have a conversation with him and pick his mind. That guy from Man vs. Food because everything he eats looks amazing. Plain and simple.

Davis and Beason will of course be healthy the whole season but its good to have a player like Klein in the rotation.

I was not happy with that pick but this obviously i was wrong.

Damnit i won't steal Gettleman's job!

I knew Klein was a solid linebacker, so I decided to check out his stats and discovered that he is even better than I thought he was.

 

He's no Luke Kuechly but he could easily be an above average outside linebacker.

 

Klein started three of his four years at Iowa State and during those three years he recorded...

 

345 tackles (362 tackles in four years)

19 tackles for a loss

9 passes defended

7 quarterback hurries

5 interceptions

4 touchdowns (87 yard int return, 78 yard int return, 69 yard int return, 25 yard int return)

3 sacks

1 fumble recovery

1 forced fumble (freshman year)

 

Judging from his stats, he looks like he be a pretty good strong side linebacker.

    • I am a 3 percenter. I am white, married, no children, no debt. I have a pension for the rest of my life, and we have a couple retirement accounts to also use at some point. I own the home I live in, I built and own 50% of the house my in-laws live in and we have our place in Mexico.  If you think for one fugging second that anything Trump does effects my life from one day to the next, you are sadly mistaken.  That being said, I'm also a compassionate human being who cares about the quality of life for other human beings. I've been places and seen both the best and worst of how people live all over the world. The GOP has proven time and again over the past 40 years they couldn't give a sh!t less about blue collar, middle America. The working class for the GOP are nothing but the mules who lug their riches to the bank. The backs of the working class bore not only the labor that made assholes like Trump rich, but they are also the backs the GOP stand on to keep their feet from touching the bullsh!t they spew. While racism has always had its place in politics, the GOP has become very overt in their racism and have added that to the mix as well.  Sad part is, many naive, uneducated people who live in this country and who have been the forced labor in the GOP camp for the last 40 years are supporting such a regime. Why? Because they have no nuance for anything but the very basic and will believe the simpleton idea of "building a wall" before they'll try to educate themselves and become literate with the entire immigration reform issue. They'll buy into the anti-Muslim rhetoric and believe they are the terrorists despite the fact they should more afraid of the teenage white kid down the street who spends most of his time playing video games in the basement and reads Nazi blogs on his lunch hour in the high school cafeteria.      
    • @Mr. Scot   I am happy for the good, and sad for the bad, but, I do know you will do alright. Just keep your eye on the prize, and all will be well. You may be losing this family, so you've got that going for you.   Keep Pounding my friend. Keep Pounding.
