he would do like timmons did his 1st year, then he would repace timmons nickel role when timmons replaces footes starting role.


but we are crowded at the position and only take him if he falls. i think he goes between detroit at #20 and indy's pick.

I doubt he falls to us . . . there are a bunch of teams in the 20s in desperate need of LBs.

Harrison, Timmons, Laurinitis, Woodley
Hey I agree with 95% of what you said the only thing I dont agree with is Harrison He is I belive 32 years old. I dont particularly think he will be around for "years to come". Maybe 3-4 but not to much more than that.

With Laurinaitis, we could run a 1-6 defense.

Harrison--Laurinaitis--Farrior--Foote--Timmons--Woodley.

And then rotate Hampton and Smith on the line.

Who needs a D-line anyway?

That would be freaking awesome to bust out every year we play a team that has a starting rookie quarterback. If they think LeBeau is nucking futs with four linebackers...

First of all, maybe Coach was just being nice. I'm sure he would say that to lots of players that are going to be drafted in the first round, doesn't mean he expects them to be there or would sell the farm to get them.

Really? Who do you expect to replace Farrior as a starter in two years or so? What happens when Foote leaves next year? Oh yeah, I forgot how easy it is for young linebackers to learn our system. Rookies start all the time. What happens if one of our guys gets hurt, who steps in exactly? Our linebacking corps is awesome but it is disconcertingly top-heavy.

It would take a miracle for him to fall. To say he's NOT the best player at #32 is right, as he's actually probably the best player at #20.

People, there is ONE knock on him, and that's that he ran a slightly slow 40 speed. He's strong against the run. He has good coverage skills. He CAN shed blocks. He has great lateral speed. He is ALWAYS flying around the ball. He can rush the passer. He's smart and disciplined, rarely out of position. And he is a football freak, lives and breathes the game. Curry is probably a guy on his level. Maualuga is a lackadasical player, not serious about the game, and he's had some off-field troubles. Clay Matthews is a little one-dimensional and overrrated.

Is he an immediate need? No. But if he falls, we will grab him because he WILL BE the BPA. And he and Timmons will be the ILB tandem for years to come.

If he is there, grab him. Well, select him. Thats better. We need another motor for the inside being groomed for greatness.

I really want Mack, but I wouldn't be upset with this pick.
