I don't link dump much, but this you've got to read. This quote alone makes me love, LOVE, this guy.
"If I can break to a ball two-tenths of a second faster and take a straighter angle, I'm going to get there faster than a guy who can run three-tenths of a second faster than me in the forty. The forty is obviously forty yards and how often are you running forty yards? It's more like you're running twenty yards most of the time in football."Talk about understanding football. This quote alone proves to me that Silva's understanding and ability to explain the game already surpasses most scouts. Damn.
Boston College posted the 7th best defensive FEI in college despite little pro caliber talent. A smart cover safety with excellent tackle skills, yeah, that might help this D a little.
