    Carp was drafted over Lawson because he was a perfect fit for the LOLB spot minus his height and short arms

    as we see now, BP had no idea how Carp would react when moved inside since he never played the position before, don't know where you're getting this "ability to play multiple positions" from

    From Bill Parcells's mouth. Listen to the press conferences. He has stated that Carpenter was appealing because he could play multiple positions.

    Great. Let's ignore offense for the billionth year in a row.

    My draft would be 4 olineman, a free safety who can make plays, and a stout dt to help rest Ferguson ( a sumo wrestler type would be perfect) maybe even a real sumo wrestler

    "Around" in the temporal sense encompasses both before and after the fact. Thanks for taking this conversation to new heights.

    I remember it being because he was versatile, that doesn't mean being able to play multiple positions, but in rushing the passer, stopping the run, and playing in coverage

    he only talks about moving Carp to ILB because "he's a smart kid and I think he can handle it"

    and of course Ellis adapting to the OLB position so well, which wasn't a sure thing in Parcells' mind, per his PCs

    I'm saying we drafted a guy that could step in and play competently at multiple LB positions in the 3-4. Bill loves those players. He dreams about those players.

    "after the draft" is more precise

    Yeah, I guess he just figured out that he was a smart kid that could handle multiple positions AFTER THE DRAFT.;)

    If I was a betting man :) I would say that Carp will end the season as the starting SSOLB and will begin next season there.

    And while I would not be shocked that we drafted another LB in either rounds 2 or 3 I just doubt we would blow a 1 on one.

    If I was a betting man I would say that Carpenter is not the future of this franchise at LOLB.

    Texas' Brian Robison could be an outstanding conversion in the middle and later rounds. He's an outstanding athlete.

    If Gaines Adams is only 250, then Clemson needs to get the batteries on their scales checked

    I know this won't be popular but it may well happen that the best player on the board come our pick will be a CB and it wouldn't be a bad pick even if there are more pressing needs...
