Overview:

Forrest has good size, is in on every play, is a tackling machine, and a good cover linebacker. He is also a good run stuffing linebacker. He is also very experienced. On the other hand, he does not have great speed, he gets overpowered at times by big offensive lineman, and he is not known as being as sack specialist. With that being sack, Forrest is a late round pick to me.
