I kinda like the Zach Brown band even though I love rock/metal, they were pretty good in 2012.
Shazier is more explosive, faster, and stronger than Brown and my opinion is he's a much better player. Putting up 143 tackles in the B1G is no small feat. He has the potential to be one of the best weak side linebackers in the league. The biggest draw though to me is they already know him as a person better than any other team in the league and the talent is definitely there to warrant a 1st round pick even if LBs traditionally aren't a sought out commodity early on very often.
A 6.90 3-cone is on pace with most slot receivers and his 4.38 40 shows he can stay with anyone. Plus he's got great size at 6'1" 237 and his frame doesn't look maxed out, like he could add another 10 pounds easily in his legs and upper body. So I don't think you say the floor is high.
