Expected to back up Joe Mays at middle linebacker.
Like Kelvin Sheppard and Mason Foster, Irving is a talented rookie who could instantly turn into a standout IDP in the right situation. Irving is a high-motor playmaker who, despite having the tendency to play a bit reckless, figures to be a natural fit in coach John Fox’s attack-style 4-3 defense. The loosely expected outcome with the Denver linebackers is D.J. Williams on the weak side, Von Miller on the strong side and Irving in the middle. If that ends up being the case, send Irving way up the list. He figures to be a menace to NFL backfields after totaling 32.5 tackles for loss the last two years at North Carolina State.
