Legit 4.4 with great hands? At this point he's a rich man's Craig Davis (Both are more fast than they are explosive, similar size and game in HS, Quinn is a flat out better player coming out of HS though.) If Craig Davis's strengths and limitations were enough to get him selected in the first roun...

A good theory is it is solar energy related. When some aspect of the solar energy dissipates (a few hours after sunset, in other words midnight) food gives mogwais the special evil type of heartburn. And then when the sun starts to rise, the energy that keeps that from happening comes back.

Assuming Willis will eventually be as impactful as a Dorsey or Lavalais, Willis all the way. A disruptive defensive lineman is better than a talented safety any day of the week. Unless that safety is the elite of the elite, such as Ed Reed.
