How would you compare Dion Bailey to Groots? Is Bailey’s fate similar to Groots- a great although undersized college LB but no NFL career?
A: I’ve often said Matt Grootegoed was one of the best linebackers I covered and I would probably place him in the top two with Chris Claiborne based on performance. So it’s a little early for Bailey on that comparison. However, I do think Bailey does have NFL potential. It might be at safety. But he is athletic enough to play in the NFL.

WHICH PLAYERS WILL NOT BE PARTICIPATING IN SPRING PRACTICE BECAUSE OF INJURY OR GRADES?
A: Thank you for asking in all caps. I think Robert Woods will be limited because of his ankle surgery. George Farmer still might be able to play because I hear his academic status might be upgraded. I’m not sure if Jesse Scroggins will get to play because he needs to concentrate on his academics to be eligible next year.
