He looks very healthy and I disagree he needs to add weight. He has a ton of good football left in him, and hopefully he gets to showcase it in a Falcons uniform. Keanu only weakness is that he gets pushed around if the offense successfully engages him at the point of attack. That is why I get mildly amused when people call him a run stuffer. He is more of a run attacker. He is a missile, not a tank. He is a speed/agility/football IQ/attitude LB. He wins when he beats you to the spot. All size will do is slow him down and allow the offense to successfully engage him at the point of attack more often. That is why attacking DTs and one true edge threat are so important to our D. Two blockers on GJ, one on the edge with a helper. If the rookie DT becomes a true threat you have to account for him. It gets to the point where you have one high football IQ heat seeking missile running free in the middle of the field on some snaps.
