I think debo is further behind than the rant leads most to believe. He is an awesome athlete, but is still learning a lot about the position. I think his attitude and athleticism can makeup for that in short time, but than and Kwon are clearly ahead of him.
It's his size. He's a very smart kid, so I doubt it has anything to do with learning the position. He's only 200 pounds. He also played most of last season as a 17 year old!! He's two years younger than some of the freshman! I expect him to be the highest draft pick of any LB from LSU in the last 30 years.
