    35 Reps on the bench is impressive!!! That is more than lots of DLineman!!! He will more than replace Dobbins. You know Rivera loves him.

    Sounds real smart, which is another underrated intangible.

    o ok i was wondering about that. I mentioned John Butler the old GM:lol:

    No i mean I don't understand this Pick...

    Why? I mean he's probably gonna be great but we have lots of LB's and good LB's. We couldn't get an NT or something?

    I guess AJ does whatever he wants:icon_huh:

    I had to go check out butlers stats after seeing the video. The kid can lift the 225 35 times. And runs a 4. 6 40 at 245. But unlike taylor mays. Butler knows where the ball is going and goes to it. Which is the most important thing.

    I think we stole one here.

    He's a solid player.

    He'll eventually take Cooper's spot, I'm sure.

    He's ranked the 3rd best ILB on many boards and sounds like a smart guy. He's going to be the future QB of the D.

    Strengths:
    Great size with a muscular physique --- Very Athletic --- Explosive and fast with a burst --- Smooth with nice agility and quickness --- Terrific instincts to read and react --- Excellent strength --- Does a fantastic job in pursuit and closes in a hurry --- Able to avoid blockers --- Reliable tackler --- Can match up in man coverage --- Decent blitzer --- Hard Worker --- Leader --- Versatile --- Superb special teamer --- Productive.

    Weaknesses:
    Durability may be a concern --- Struggles when he has to take on and shed blockers --- Lacks power in his game --- Not a big hitter --- Can be too aggressive at times --- Gets engulfed when massive linemen lock on --- Is not stout at the point of attack --- Frame might be maxed out.

    Notes:
    Was a 2½-year starter for the Huskies --- Named 2nd Team All-Pac-10 in 2009 --- Served as a team captain --- Missed some time with a knee injury in 2007 --- Suffered a concussion in 2008 --- Didn't work out at the Scouting Combine due to an ankle sprain --- Generated a lot of buzz with his performance at the Senior Bowl --- Could project inside or outside at the next level and has experience at both positions --- A real intriguing player with a lot of talent who flew under the radar while stuck on a bad team in the Pacific Northwest --- Underrated prospect with both the physical tools and intangibles to be a starter in the NFL.

    So a new linebacker who will fill in for Dobbins behind three other guys will immediately upgrade a defense where we have scrubs, journeymen and one overpriced underperforming first round pick making up the defensive line.....


    Only makes sense to AJ :tdown:

    I watched the first video and I was very impressed with what the guy had to say. You can tell he's smart and school and character mattered to him. His physical measurables and his versatility are both pluses.

    I am liking this pick--- and this draft--- more and more.

    We basically got the top RB (I rate him slightly higher than Spiller because he is a more complete 3 round back) on the board and a top 3 ILB. That's not too bad for a team that went 13-3 last year.

    We had a glaring hole at the tailback position. And by the time we picked in the 3rd, almost all the impact DL were off the board. So getting a top 3 ILB is a great move.

    Our team defensive line rotation was pretty good the last 8 games. I think Ron Rivera is tweaking the way our traditional 3-4 defense plays.

    The Jets were shut down the 1st half and if Cro wasn't such a punany, who knows if Greene and the Jets even score on that drive.

    Cam Thomas will probably still be there when we pick in the 4th.

    Castillo, Johnson, Bingham, Garay, Scott, Boone, Nwagbo, Martin. While not spectacular, at least there's some depth and some guys with potential to grow.

    RB and ILB did not have any depth. I think the team has done a good job and I am excited to see what they grab tomorrow.

    S, DL, OL, TE, QB are all on the wish list.

    Ironically I thought Matthews was good and I'm not even horribly against the Butler pick. but this ignoring of the other most obvious need - defensive line - is so irritating especially when combined with this (frankly) bullshit of how the line is actually good now that its filled with scrubs and journeymen

    Don't worry Ant, Cam Thomas is still there. If we get him, then will you be happy?
