IMO, Laurinaitis is overrated. Let's just agree to disagree
That would be a great theory if I ONLY watched OSU football. However, that is not the case. In fact, I happen to watch a ton of college football, so when I say he's the one of the best linebackers I've ever seen play, it's not just part of some ignorant tirade based only on homerism.

The true beauty of all this is it's now here, in black and white, and we can all not only watch Laurinaitis get drafted in the 1st round, but also watch and track his NFL career...so I'll be proven right over time...

i didnt hear the actual interview just a re-cap, but schein and miller are talking about the steelers 1st pick.

james flat out said he will be a steeler if he is still on the board.

they said it makes alot of sense based on his "relationship with dick lebeau".

hmmm...

He won't be there...I already said I'd eat my hat if he lasts that long.

I watch a ton of college football too

If he is so great, then why isn't he projected in the 1st round???

He is in just about every single mock draft made so far

This isn't really true, but it doesn't mean he's not a first-round talent. He had been ranked as high as top ten, but he's fallen because he's not really athletically exceptional in terms os speed or strength, he's just really, really good at playing football. Who would guess that that would be worth anything anymore?

I'll take Laurinaitis . . . I don't even care how much we don't need a LB. Other teams can feel free to indulge themselves with the Heyward-Beys of the world . . .

The thing is, there's a pretty decent chance he falls to us--he's clearly rated behind all the USC LB on most boards, as well as Everette Brown, Aaron Maybin, and obviously Curry.

Personally, I think after Curry it's between Maulaugua and Laurinatis for second-best (and hardest to spell) LB in this draft. If you count Orakpo as a LB, he would be second-best, but I'm counting him as a 4-3 DE for the time being.

Laurinaitis is like a shark: He was designed to do one thing, and do it perfectly.

Combine numbers are for Daniel Snyder and Al Davis. I want real football players...

(By the by, I have no idea how to spell his name either...I just know it's effed up)

As tomlin would say
“That boy’s as ordinary as a bowl of grits,”

although i do like another OSU player michael jenkins - not to play corner but to play safety. clark is nice but i think jenkins could take over in 2010.

And D ick LeBeau's opinion means nothing?

You've been hating on OSU LBers for awhile now. I recall you saying they were slow...than Freeman goes out and busts off a 4.51 40 at his pro day.

Doesn't matter. Both will make fine NFL LBers and there will be a couple teams that will be VERY happy come April 25th...
