He was the starting MLB at Kentucky throughout his career there, but started to hit his stride in his junior season.
Kentucky runs the 43 D, from what I know. But he has the body type to play 34 ILB. He's Rolando McClain from a body standpoint, but he has more speed and athleticism. McClain and Micah would be an unbelievable combination as you would have the run stuffer, and the playmaker.
I didn't watch a ton of Kentucky football either, and I don't know nearly as much about him as try to lead on;p. But I do know enough to know that he is a 1st round talent, and if we could get in late Day 2, or Day 3.....Wow.
This year's Jasper Brinkley except better.
You're close. Micah shared starting time in his freshman year. He generally came in during the second half. It wasn't as much RB/RW kind of sharing time as it was Kurt Warner/Matt Leinart kind of sharing time (when they ran it a few years ago). The guy he shared time with during his freshman year moved to OLB the next season.
UK runs a 4-3, but that doesn't mean anything.
I don't know about the more speed and athleticism than McClain. He definitely has both, especially for a huge ILB, and I agree that he could easily fit the 3-4 defense. He can hit, and he can move.
