It is early, but here is my list of potential OLB and their sack and tackle for loss numbers from last year.



1. Brandon Lang 6' 4" 250 Troy 11.5 19

2. Sergio Kindle 6' 4" 254 Texas 10 12.5

3. G. Romeus* 6' 5" 265 Pittsburgh 7.5 15.5

4. Greg Hardy 6' 4" 265 Mississippi 8.5 9.5

5. G. Selvie 6' 4" 252 S. Florida 5.5 13

6. B. Graham 6' 2" 268 Michigan 10 20

7. J.Hughes 6' 2" 248 TCU 15 19.5

8. A. English 6' 3" 254 Oklahoma 4.5 9


Clearly, we will have to see how they play next year.

am already drooling at the list. damn next year we ought to, naw fcuk it we better land one of those Linebackers.

For some reason Brandan Lang and Brandon Graham intrigue me for some odd reason.
Lang is a beast. Will be watching him this season
i think selvie emerges as the top guy in the NFL after its all said and done..

his size + speed is incredible...

his actual pass rush talents are great...

i would think of him as a bigger more talented everette brown...possibly faster too
hmmm. U have Graham as a OLB? isnt he like goin 270 something.

My top OLB are

1. Sergio Kindle, Texas, Senior
2. Sean Weatherspoon, Missouri, Senior
3. Jerry Hughes, TCU, Senior
4. Mark Herzlich, Boston College, Senior
5. Rennie Curran, Georgia, Junior
6. Navorro Bowman, Penn State, Junior
7. Greg Jones, Michigan State, Junior
8. Travis Lewis, Texas, Junior
9. Quan Sturdivant, North Carolina, Junior
10. Rico Murray, Tennessee, Senior
11. Roddrick Muckelroy, Texas, Senior
12. Stevenson Sylvester, Utah, Senior
13. Dexter Davis, Arizona State, Senior
14. Eric Norwood, South Carolina, Senior
15. Clinton Snyder, Stanford, Senior

then theres the DE's who will transition to OLB in the pro's.

Graham is pretty fast. NFL Scout has him running a 4.74 forty. He might be able to make the transition.

Shawne Merriman is around the same weight at 272 lbs.

Graham's height bothers me more than his weight.

He only goes 6-2, but there are good 3-4 OLB that are close to same height.

Lamar Woodley is 6-2.

James Harrison is 6-0.

Adalius Thomas is 6-2 and Thomas weighs about 270.

Terrell Suggs is 6-2.

It is early maybe he can play OLB. It is worth watching.

edit.

NFL Scout has LB as Graham's second position

NFL Draft Bible says this

1. 4-3 end vs. 3-4 LB? – Graham falls into the category of hybrid or tweaner, depending on your perspective. He demonstrates success with one hand down as a 4-3 end right now (his natural position), but his size and speed may make him better suited as a stand-up outside linebacker in a 3-4 set. Perhaps one more year of physical development will help scouts understand his future position in the NFL.

I read that Graham is still growing too, he really looks like he is going to be a 4-3 pass rushing DE to me.

Dexter Davis is a DE
And doesn't Herzlich have cancer or something? Thats gotta effect his draft status

[ Edited by SunDevilNiner79 on Jun 7, 2009 at 18:33:21 ]
Yea Herzlich has ewing sarcoma which will likely result in removal of his bone which won't be good for his career.
Carlos Dunlap is #1 on my wishlist. I don't care if he fits in as a prototypical Will. If you're in position to take the freak you select the freak.

Guys comparable to Mario Williams don't come along that often.

if we go back to 4-3. wouldn't this limit him in 3-4
That's quite the list there. If Manny doesn't step up I would like one of those guys with 1 of our first 2 picks.
http://myespn.go.com/blogs/pac10/0-9-150/Weight-room-warriors--Arizona-State-s-Dexter-Davis.html

Dexter Davis up to 255 lbs, 8% body fat, 37 inch vertical, benched 225lbs 30 times.

I tihnk 255, maybe up to 265, is as high as he can go with his frame.
Selvie and Hardy would be my guys. Hopefully they are more fluid than E. Brown was in OLB drills cause I really liked him. If they can make the transition they are my top 2.
