Agree or disagree: Of 3 big potential LBs, Wimbley seems the best w/linemen?

    I think there is a significant drop off, yes.

    I think you may be right about WImbley, there was a post on here where someone, I think Mike Mayock, said that WImbley would make for a cover-2 DE

    you have a point, one of Carpenter's strength is taking on and disengaging blocks using his size and strength

    Greenway can't rush the passer effectively, can't take on blocks, ankle tackles, don't know why you have him rated above WImbley considering our scheme

    Yet in the highlights you saw very little of his so-called strengths. The clips I saw he was shooting gaps and running free.

    Wimbley scares me. For all of his talent and measurables, where's the production?

    Why did he only start one year at Florida Stae if he's that talented?

    Why didn't he have better on-the-field numbers than he did?

    Comparing his numbers to Carpenter's or Lawson's, Wimbley's look a lot less impressive.

    And I don't want to use a first round draft pick on potential but rather on productivity.

    Potential gets people fired.
