He reminds me some of Kevin Burnett. Maybe a little stronger, and a little slower than Burnett, but always around the ball. I love how he plays wide open and tackles very well.
I don't think there's anything about him that says "elite", but I think he can be a solid NFL LB. He could probably move to the outside too with his speed. I'd guess around 2nd rounder right now. He is a Jr, doubt he comes out.
It really comes down to the postseason. The nature of the LB position makes it hard to really project at times, as often times, a player can be a quality talent but drop if they lack elite physical tools. My guess is if Mayo came out, he'd be in that 3rd-5th range.
