I can’t believe it! Just my Velusian Luck!
I was getting ready to blow a little moon with a photon bomb and all of the sudden OUCH!!!!
Now look at me…
My arm’s in a sling. I’m out of commission.
Maybe I was pressing myself to eliminate too many lifeforms.
Luckily, I have been studying Earth enough to learn about their medicine.
Those Earthlings might be as dumb as Beam Beetles, but they do know how to fix everything fast!
Just apply a little duct tape here and a little WD-40 and I’m back in action destroying the parts of universe I don’t like!
Now look at me!
Back in Action!!!
Speaking of injuries…how could this happen to Jaylon Smith!
And at the worst time in the Fiesta Bowl!
If you don’t know by now, Jaylon Smith, considered by many to be the best linebacker in the country tore his ACL in the final game of his college career.
What bad luck.
This guy was a top 10 pick in the NFL Draft. Before the injury Jaylon Smith could do it all.
He can tackle, he can cover, he can rush the passer. He can do it all!
He was the most athletic defender in a very good Notre Dame defense in 2015.
So what now, Smith?
Do you go back to Notre Dame and play late in the college season to show people you still have it…
NOPE not Jaylon Smith, he declared for the NFL draft soon after the Fiesta Bowl.
And that’s just the type of move I expect from such an aggressive defender.
Smith has all the traits you like to see in a linebacker:
Aggression, Aggression and of course Aggression!!!
It’s that aggression that that helped Smith tally 126 tackles over the last two years.
And he is versatile. He can play inside or outside at the NFL level.
He’s got a little pop to him every time he tackles down the carrier.
Smith is like a missile when he diagnoses the play.
Here’s how I imagine his brain works:
1. There is the Ball Carrier
Some people suggest that Smith needs to gain weight and is a little light for the position at about 235 LBs.
I tell those humans that the linebacker position is changing in the NFL and requires linebackers that move well more than anything else.
And Smith can MOVE!
Smith is bound to be the kind of linebacker to excel in the modern day NFL in this alien’s opinion. Unfortunately, the injury is going to push him down some draft boards.
Some team is going to get a defensive stud, if they are just patient.
Can Jaylon Smith be the next Todd Gurley coming back from a major injury to make an immediate impact in the NFL.
Hmmmmm…let’s see…a little duct tape here a little WD-40 there.
I think he will be fine in the NFL!!!
If Jaylon Smith was an Alien Weapon of Destruction. He would be the Mythical Unstoppable Earth Cure of Legends!!!
Check out some of his highlights!
