    Spencer has a great motor, and if people don't like him, they won't like this guy either.

    If Spencer were drafted in the 4th round people wouldn't be so upset about him.

    Spencer is a good pursuit player but he is far from relentless and attacking when going up against an OT. He is content to get upfield and flail away with his arms. He rarely bullrushes and does not have an inside counter. He lacks the burst and body lean ability to get by as an outside rusher. He is an extremely limited players as an edge pass rusher. That is where I was commenting about his motor - he just doesn't attack OTs when lined up at DE.

    I see this guy as another version of Spencer but maybe he'll be able to develop some pass rush moves.

    I like him but have a hard time figuring out where he's going to play. He's not big enough to play 3-4 DE, and not athletic enough, imo, to play OLB.

    I like the kid, but don't know that he has the physical ability to bring much to the table here.

    - OLB Shea McCLellin of Boise State continues to impress since making the move to linebacker. He destroyed several running backs and fullbacks this morning in pass-rushing drills in which he simulated standing up over a tackle.

    - Shea McClellin of Boise State looks better every day at the linebacker position. He's been planted in the middle today and has done a great job remaining patient with assignments, smoothly moving across the field and showing a good degree of awareness.

    Diggin it. Hopefully Dallas can get him. Although if he keeps kicking *** he might move up a bit.

    Its funny because.. like your new best friend and hero, Sean Lee, you have no idea who this player is and won't know a thing about him until you start reading draft profiles and other people's opinions of him.. and yet in a year or two, you'll be proclaiming to all of us how you found him and how you told everyone he'd be a star if he starts to play well.

    Thats my biggest fear, knew this was coming but good for him. If Dallas is interested they might have to pounce in Rd2.

    I've been looking at him recently myself and the news from the Senior Bowl looks better each and every day (or worse, depending on how you look at it).

    I think he'll be a late 2nd or early 3rd rounder.

    People will be looking to get the next Ryan Kerrigan.

    Just by watching the video he looks like a solid football player; maybe not a superstar but definitely can be a key piece to any defense! Maybe a 3rd round prospect?

    Please.

    Don't talk to me about the 'motor' of a guy who admitted himself he didn't consistantly give his all.

    I wasn't talking to you at all, just stating that his motor isn't the problem when half of his sacks and pressures come from continued pursuit of the play. He admitted he didn't work hard enough in practice, and it translated to stupid mistakes in the games. Im sick of seeing him crucified over a strict self evaluation that he was giving himself, when no one else on the team has stepped up and admitted they didn't give a crap last year either and took plays and entire games off because our whole team was guilty of it.

    And continued underperformance when it mattered most.

    Credit to him for admitting it.

    Shame on him for having to admit it.

    He's a disappointment.

    A player we've waited several years on, in the hopes that he would improve.

    He hasn't.

    I hope they do not resign him and overpay for average play. It's one thing to put up with it when you've already invested a first round draft pick. It's another to willingly do it again when you've seen the actual results for several years.

    If we can get him for a reasonable contract, we have bigger holes to fill. If he asks too much, Ingram, Upshaw, or Curry are all available for us in the draft.

    What do you think of Ahmad Brooks? I prefer signing him to re-signing Spencer myself.
