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.
