Don't worry about Hobson

Terry Bradway defends Victor Hobson's poor forty time at the Combine -

Q: On paper, it doesn't look like he has great speed and you guys are looking to increase your speed on defense …

Terry Bradway: We've got him in the 4.7 range, which we think is plenty fast enough. He plays the game fast, and the thing we like about Victor is he has the ability to play Sam (strongside) and Mike (middle). That's what was attractive to us. We knew there would be a run on linebackers in the second round and that's what happened. We thought it was important for us to be able to get a young linebacker in this draft. We haven't drafted one since we've been here. We wanted to improve the depth and youth at that position. So is he a 4.3 or 4.4 guy? No. But I think in terms of his play speed, it's good. He's a guy that can come in and be a backup initially and play on teams. Hopefully (he) can become a starter within time. He's got that kind of ability.
