ahh, my bad. then he could be drafted to replace Takeo Spikes then

Same name



point is, he's a game changer on defense and could used in some capacity

We drafted Scott McKillop this year for that very purpose. At this point, if we're talking linebackers, we should be talking about guys that have the potential to be 3-4 OLBs and get after the QB.

ok, I'll high jack my own thread then,...I forgot about Mckillop and have a man crush on Brandon Spikes,..anyway, TCU defensive end Jerry Hughes...yeah or nea

Jerry Hughes is an absolute beast and is my top option to fill our need at rush OLB opposite of Haralson... Lawson simply doesnt have the ability to consistently get to the QB and will be doomed to a specialty role as a result of it.

As it stands right now, here are my top options for each of our Day 1 picks in 2010:

ROUND 1A
Eric Berry (DB)
Ndamukong Suh (NT)
Dez Bryant (WR) - Dependant on Crabtree

ROUND 1B
Jevan Snead (QB)
Ciron Black (RT)
Taylor Mays (SS)

ROUND 2
Jerry Hughes (OLB)


Here's a little clip of Hughes for those interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwiD6xHX3Nw


I may heve read that wrong, but do you honestly think we stand a chance of getting Berry or Suh?

Don't get me wrong, I would love either of thoes, but that is wishful thinking!

Could someone enlighten me about him? Ive been hearing his name pop up quite a bit and i dont remember him being particularly fast. If were going to pick an ILB in the first round i wouldve hoped his speed at least complimented Patrick's. I just dont see it though. But yall have watched him a lot more than me. Whats the verdict on this kid?

No ILB has ever or will ever match Willis' speed
And as for the OP, I know it was done in September but Lawson is the team leader in sacks

but see thats my point. I havent seen an ILB worthy of being a top 15 pick other than Willis in the past ten years or so. Im talking numbers and measurables. 13 or 16/17 seems way too high for an ILB whos not that fast at all. McKillop or someone in the 3rd or 4th will do just as nicely. when was Harris picked? 2nd round or so? that sounds about right for Spikes.

1) Speed isn't everything, see Raiders draft history busts lately
2) Inside Linebacker from Alabama Rolando McClain is the best ILB in this draft
3) The fastest ILB in the draft is Pat Angerer from Iowa, late round prospect (5)

Speed is quite a bit though if you are picking quite high for an ILB. Im not sure about Angerers numbers but he looks decently fast even though his overall skill levels arent nearly good enough to be picked anywhere b4 the 5th round. I just keep thinking...for the 13th or 16th/17th pick a Ted that didnt stand out in almost every way...well waste of a pick isnt it?

Rolondo McClain would be worth the pick at 13 or 16/17 but he is the only inside linebacker worth it in this draft. Spikes would be worth trading up about ten picks in the second to get if he is available but taking him in the first would be bad value.

thats basically where Ive been thinking Spikes would get drafted. Rolando looks like a player for sure. Spikes in the 2nd or 3rd seems like good value although i doubt he lasts anywhere close to that.
On CBS's value chart, Brandon Spikes is 41, and Jerry Hughes is 42.
Physically, they are just about identical, Spikes is 1" taller.
If either one is still on the board at 45, I would take him.

McKillop is already a good special teams player. But Spikes is a beast!
I think its good that Spikes ran a s**tty 40. I just saw on the network that because of that he will drop to the third round. If he's there by the time we pick in the 3rd or 4th we definitely should nab him. Takeo can show him the ropes and he can be starting by seasons end.

Balmer and Soap at the DTs, with Smith and a draft pick at DEs with Evans, McDonald, RJF, and Haralson as rotational players.

Lawson, Willis, and Spikes at LBs with Ulbrich, McKillop, and a draft pick at OLB.

Geek, what is up with the rookie mistakes? Ulbrich is retired and on the Seahawks coaching staff...............

And Franchised Abrayou Franklin?
Supposedly this guy has fallen because he is barely faster than oprah.
spikes is a ILB and he is super slow no thanks
This guy will fall and he will fall fast. 4.8 is slow for an ILB but he ran 5.0- that's offensive lineman times.

In fact, I'll be surprised if he gets drafted at all.
