How Texas will build around Malik

Texas recruited a player in Malik Jefferson with the speed of a cornerback, the power of a DL, and the blitzing ability of a star linebacker. When I noted the rise of the elite athlete at inside linebacker I described guys like Malik as players that may have played as running backs in the past but really he's a freak box safety/OLB hybrid of the likes that football has rarely seen. Evil Roy of Oklahoma is probably one of his closer comps.

He can have value for Texas by being able to take on a wide variety of assignments from an inside linebacker position. Read about it at Inside Texas.
