Thread: Linebackers

  1. #1

    Linebackers

    I have heard a lot of people say that Khaseem Greene and Arthur Brown are too small to play MLB. My question is why? Brown is 6' 241lbs and Greene is 6'1 242lbs. That is almost exactly the same size as Manti Teo who everyone agrees can and will play MLB.

    Patrick Willis 6'1 242
    Navorro Bowman 6' 242
    etc.

    So again, why are they "too small" to play MLB?

    Well Willis and Bowman play in the 3-4, and I think a bigger LB fits a 4-3 better, but neither Brown nor Greene have the 49rs LB speed, so that takes away from them. I love Grene and Brown, I think the Giants should take a chance at both of them. In round 2 I think Brown will be gone, but if Greene is there I think is a no brainer, if we don't take a Lb in the first.

    it has to be brown, he fits the giants system like a glove and he is ready to play.

    Wouldn't it make sense to have bigger linebackers in a 3-4 since there are only 3 lineman in front of them vs being protected by 4 lineman in a 4-3? Not have the speed?? Bowman ran a 4.7 while Greene and Brown are both expected to run in the low 4.6s...

    Yea idk what that really means. All three weigh 240 lbs and i fail to see an ounce of fat on Brown. So what's your point Eli?
