    There are many ILBs right now that were not signed by anyone and yet have played 4 years of college football at all levels.
    If we really need to grab another ILB that can actually play before the season, we can grab some as they are cut from other teams.
    Precisely.

    He is basically a 26 year old guy off the street who wants to play in the NFL. No experience, not in football shape....nothing. He probably played JV his freshman year of HS, varsity his soph year with little playing time, and has done nothing since.

    Great story, but I would recommend finding another dream because the NFL isn't it.

    I don't think he should give up his NFL dream yet, but he probably will have to go to the CFL first...I think someone there would give him a shot. Let him get a year or 2 of experience, make some solid money and try again in 2-3 years.

    Or, he could go to college.

    I guarantee you that some D-1 school out there would give this kid an opportunity to play ball for them. Prior to going away he had scholarship offers from USC.

    Perfect example of how the college game/amateur experience is essential for aspiring NFL athletes.

    I am no scout but wasn't he offered at USC? Sure he saw the field a lot to get an offer but HS football or college football isn't the NFL

    College would be a fantastic idea for him, he would leave college with a degree, so that he will get a great career if the NFL is still not interested in him. The problem is he will be pretty old if he does go to college, so he'd probably want to enter the draft in his junior year. (If he turns out that good at college)

    Yea, but the kid really needs to look at the big picture.

    He's a longshot to make the NFL and the CFL & UFL aren't solid options for the most part.

    Why not play the game you love, get your degree, and give back.

    If he's good enough after a year or two of playing against top level college talent, then he can make a decision about going to the NFL a-la Brandon Weedon.

    This is probably the guy's best option. Plus, if the NFL doesn't work out, he has a college degree in hopefully something that he can use to earn a living.
