Mario Harvey is a a beast, I've kinda always kept an eye on marshall prospects i live very close to the campus and actually work for their hospital. Marshall has a long line of great prospects and they continue to put a few in the pros every other season or so. I'd guess Marios a late 5th to 7th round pick, but he's what u want out of a LBer, he's very good at the MLB spot but has the speed to play outside too, gets to the QB and causes pressure every time he's called upon. Here's to taking him with our 5th or one of our 6th round picks.
I've got my little hopes that one of our 6th and 7th round picks include the selection of OLB Bruce Miller and ILB Mario Harvey. In my opinion, we only have 4 linebackers worthy of starting, and only 6 legitimate players to make the roster, which are: Willis, Lawson, Spikes, Bowman, Brooks, and Haralson.
Bowman struggled heavily at the TED when we tried to put him in for Spikes. He was great at the MIKE spot however and it's not surprising because the MIKE and SAM positions are his natural spots.
I think the team needs to trade Parys Whifferson. Too slow, too many missed tackles, and too many stupid off-sides calls. Brooks may jump sometimes but at least he can get to the QB. Parys took his payday and packed it in.
Ideally, you want the team to have a good starter at all positions. We need to re-man the TED spot for when Spikes goes, and Miller/Harvey would be excellent fits.
