I’d say most NFL players played running back when they were kids. It would be where junior teams stick their best player. Like ‘five eight’ in junior rugby league.Im not sure how big he is but from his picture he doesn’t look big enough to be a linebacker.
Running back, maybe.
Combine the defence of a linebacker, who normally are the best tacklers, with the speed and ability to play what’s in front of them like a RB, then I could see a hooker coming from that.
In saying that, I have no idea if he’s good at any of those things.
