Married, two kids. Team captain.
The problem with Reilly is that he does have the ACL history and will be a 26 year old rookie. The guy will leave it all on the field and can play all four LB positions in a 34 as a three/four down guy. I don't think I'd spend a first rounder on him. If he was there in the third, it would be an easy pick. I like Van Noy a little better, but both are incredibly similar players that would fit extremely well into this defense.
