Have you watched him play? He's fine on a blitz, ND just doesn't send him that often. Their front is very talented, and as you pointed out, he is fantastic in pass coverage. Why would you take your best cover LB and constantly blitz him when it's not necessary? I realize everyone is on the Alabama train, but there are other capable, worthy players outside of the SEC.
