    Re: Linebackers.......



    [quote user="myles2424"]Idk if this has been posted..... But some LBs checking bigger than expected..... Zach brown- 6'1 244 Lavonte David- 6'1 233 Sean spence- 5'11 231 I see this helping them.... Zach brown with the added size & if he maitains speed will be a 1st round lock IMO... Lavonte David- seen as a mid 2nd round prospect, if he has a solid combine, any chances on him going in the 1st? He's a beast[/quote]Like you said, if Brown maintains his speed at 244, then I think he will be a 1st rd selection.







    Actually from what I have read and seen in some games, I think all 3 will be more of the Will backer in the NFL. But in todays NFL with the pass happy offenses, LBs like the 3 you listed are what you want.

    Perry Fewell is out there playing Tecmo Bowl defense with just 4 plays you can pick from on the remote control.

    [/quote] lavonte david & Sean spence, I'm a little surprised haven't got more hype on the boards......although our 1st may be a little early & the won't last until our 2nd, these two guys are beasts.......

    Spence 5'11 & David 6'1, but I don't see that as much a problem, they both could use a extra 5-8 lbs putting them closer to 240....

    A fast,athletic, 3 down Beast at LB would be amazing...

Zach Brown is a freakish athlete but highly overrated football prospect.

    When it came to stuffing the run, which was/is Goff's job in this defense, 2010 Goff was in the top-5 in the league.

    His biggest problem was dropping in coverage, a problem it looked like he had rectified in preseason (if you all remember, Goff was dropping into coverage very smoothly).

    Also, I disagree that we don't have a SLB. Greg Jones was a natural SAM in college, as was Mark Herzlich. Considering the SAM and MIKE 'backers are part-time positions in this defense (as it stands now. Luke Kuechly, a 100% Herzlich, or Audie Cole (or another like one of them, I don't feel like typing out a bunch of names) could change that, and reduce the amount of snaps in the nickle), between Jones, Goff, Herz, and Kiwi (and Adrian Tracy), I think they can man all 3 linebacker positions just fine.

    Might not be stacked with all-pros, but considering what they had put up almost historic numbers against some of the best offenses in history, I'm not concerned.
