We definitely DO NOT need another LB that runs a 4.8+. I can just see it now, he slips to us at 17, great draft ON PAPER, and then the season comes and he can't keep up with a TE to save his life! I like him and actually feel kinda bad for the kid but after this time, I would pass. He will look like Harrison and Foote trailing right behind PIta or Gresham.

I hear a Linebackers talent is based on his 40 time and his vertical jump.

The more I see of Te'o, the more I'm believing he's more hype than substance.

you could say that about the secondary and WRs as well. Honestly the main question is how do they play? Remember there are always work-out warriors who look great but there's always going to be somebody else who just plays great football.

Who was the DE we signed undrafted from Ohio State back in 06 or 05 that could bench 600 lbs and we were going to convert into a LB. I guess he had ankle injuries or something that ruined his career, but while his strength made him look like a great asset he never made it on the field.

At least with WRs and CBs they'd be running 40+ yards on streak routes either trying to cover or trying to get separation using speed. I mean, honestly, when is a Linebacker going to be running 40 yards down the field to make a play? Like Akbar Gbajabiamila said earlier today - the most a 'Backer is going to run to make a tackle / play is 20 yards and even that seems high.

I can see why WRs and CBs speed would be taken into account before drafting them, I honestly can. It's just funny to me that people are judging this kid by his 40 time and his vertical jump. When would that ever play a factor in terms of his ability to stuff the run or make a play in the backfield? Does it show he would struggle against TEs and slot WRs? Sure, I suppose. I think you hit the nail on the head, though - it comes down to whether or not they can play ball. Even that is up in the air for Te'o now, though.

It's not a 4.8, but Beason and Bowman both ran 4.7. Speed ≠ talent and football ability, guys. Keep that in mind.

The difference between a 4.7 and 4.8 is a so small. Even 4.6 to 4.8 is 2 fractions of a second not that much. Even so you expect linebackers to be between 4.6 and 4.8 so he was where he was suppose to be. I wouldn't make much from it I didn't expect him to be a 4.6 guy and the scouts didn't either.

All that matters is what he does on the field and the tape shows he excels on the field.

Given the reports on spence, we can't count on him for 2013 and his career could be done. If he doesone back he won't be what he was. So our depth ilb is bad.

With everyone wanting a ilb next to Timmons that can cover/drop in coverage what would you guys think about moving Timmons. What I mean is in the 3-4 you got the Mack and buck in the middle, Timmons right now Is the Mack and the job of the Mack is to play sideline to sideline cover rbs and tight ends and drop in zone - usually guys faster and more althetic. Buck is the signal caller for the defense and main job is to control the run game and blitz more than the Mack.

We all want Timmons to blitz more and wreck the oline more and more well as of right now that's not his job so if Timmons is able to call the defense I would like to see him move over to the buck and draft a Mack guy with the cover skills. We can't keep Timmons in the Mack and draft a cover guy for the buck its just not how the defense is designed. So if we draft a guy like teo or other bigger backers expect Timmons to still have the same role as last year.

Said it all before, he is no better than James Laurinitis or Dan Connor. 2nd round talent at best. He couldn't catch Maurice Clarett in a foot race. All a product of Notre Dame hype .
