I thought the Patriots might take him, but in my mock, I had English going to the Cardinals at #31 as a replacement for Calvin Pace that they lost to the Jets last year. Some say English is a Woodley clone and we all know the Cards sometimes try to mimic the Steelers.

I am sure he will be a fine player and its a lot of fun to talk smack with you and all of the others on this board.

Steelers got a much better player in Hood

Hood probably won't even start this year, and will play situationally.

Laurinaitis is automatically the starter in StL. BAD comparison....

Better player or better fit? Animal JR doesn't fit mold of a 3-4 LB nearly as well as Hood does a 3-4 DE. Even then, define better player. Are you looking at stats, intangibles, etc...? Animal JR will put up better stats and he could likely be the leader of that linebacking core for years to come. He's a very heady player who's always around the ball making plays.

You have apples.

I have oranges.

You're trying to compare the two.

I'm not.

Look, take your little pyrrhyc victory and be happy while it lasts...because you won't win many of these in the long run.

i had CB greg toler going to the steelers with pick #132 as a small school, ike taylor clone. cardinals took him at #131.

as for laurinaitus, the rams were trying hard to trade back into the `1st round to pick him but had no takers (which makes me think the steelers were confident with the ziggy hood pick).

in the rams case, sometimes the best trades are the ones you dont make. good for them. in several years long and james can be one a hell of a tandem.

better player

Laurinaitis actually might be a better fit at ILB in the 3-4 than MLB on a 4-3

stats? lol

Wait, you're telling me the Rams were trying to trade into the 1st to get him?

Does that mean he's actually a first rd talent?
