Looks like he covers the field well. Made some nice moves to get off blocks too. He did look flat footed a few times against the Navy although he isn't the first to look silly facing the triple option.

I would not have a problem taking Weatherspoon at 18. I am big on Thomas but as we get closer to the draft I am starting to think he will not be there when we pick at 18. So I would be fine with this pick to replace Farrior.

Weatherspoon can play inside or outside LB and we need both. I like the guy.

I like Witherspoon a lot and can see him as one of our ILBs. Thinking we could get him later in the 1st though. Maybe with SD'a pick. Spoon and 2 2nds would be great.

Spoon want's to go the the Falcons... douchebag. Id rather have someone else grateful to be a player of the most storied franchise in the nfl.

I still think Beason would be a beast in the Steelers... Pity we didnt selct him of Michael Griffin who had 10 interceptions in 2 years

Talkative LB Gets to Talk Some More

Missouri LB Sean Weatherspoon measured in at 6-1 ¼ and weighed 239 pounds. He said he gained about 12 pounds from his junior to senior year “eating cheeseburgers in the dining hall” and made a point to take that weight off after his senior year because he wasn’t looking as fluid on tape as he was as a junior, when he said he had a more productive season.

He said teams are looking at him as a middle or weakside linebacker in a 4-3 system and Mike or Mo linebacker in a 3-4 defensive system.

Weatherspoon impressed scouts at the Senior Bowl and said they have asked him if his talkative personality at the Senior Bowl was a front. No, he’s talkative all the time and he’ll put that into practice tonight in interviews from 7:45 p.m. to 11 p.m. He has already had formal interviews with Denver, Jacksonville, Buffalo and Pittsburgh.

Pretty sure he will be happy to go to any team so he can make Millions playing a game. Supa you never seem to dissappoint when a thread needs a jackass comment added!
