Young NFL linebackers typically need to get up to speed. They need to learn the game to the point where they don’t think anymore. They just react.
Jordon Dizon has been trying to slow down this spring, to react less and think more.
“A lot of people think way too much,” said Dizon, whom the Lions drafted in the second round in 2008. “They overthink, overanalyze, which makes them really slow and late to the play. But for me, I underthink. I see one thing, and I’m gone.”
