I've got a bad feeling about Akeem Ayers.
He certainly has the size and frame to excel at Flanker ~ OutSide LineBacker to you Earthlings!! ~ and NFP's Wes Bunting, for whom I have great admiration, says that "he's got the tools to be great." That's a level of lofty praise you just don't see too much of, coming from Wes Bunting, which gives it particularly potent weight.
But I don't see it. Akeem Ayers seems way too slow to Rush the Passer effectively, and his repertoire of moves is non existent. Over the last month or so, there's been increasing talk of moving him inside to Mid Fielder ~ InSide LineBacker, Earthings!! ~ where his superior skills at navigating through traffic, and both taking on and throwing off Blocks might be a better fit. However, even there, I don't see the Agility or the Lateral Velocity to be effective.
Above all, however, Akeem Ayers seems to come up short in the areas that I place the heaviest emphasis on: Instincts, Diagnostic skills, and Processing Speed.
And I do believe that the combination will prove fatal.
