Originally posted by Scoots:Lets not go nuts on Lemonier ... I've been all over him since before the draft, but he's not Aldon ... he has good power and is a natural at turning the corner once he gets a half step on the OT, but he's more quick than fast and he has a lot of work to do on technique and leverage. All that said he does have the potential to be a future pro-bowl player, particularly with Aldon on the other side.
He ran a 4.6 40 so I would aay he's pretty quick for his size especially considering he has a 15 pds on Jordan and Mingo. He does need work but what rookie doesn't need ro be refined. The improvement he has shown his first 2 games is extremely promising.
If lemonier does pan it would cement Baalke as a LB drafting guru. Not to mention Fangios ability to refine the raw into pro bowlers.
I have a question. What kind.of improvents can we expect.from Aldon? How far can and will he continue to progress?
