Will LB - Lee, Holloman
Mike LB - Mosley, Lee
Sam LB - Carter, Wilber
Hell of a player no doubt but injuries and being from alabama scares. In a trade back sure but at 16 I think it would be to early. I don't think he is a difference maker on defense. Good solid smart player but to much of a risk for me at 16
I like him, and i think he will allow to move Lee to a position where he still can make some plays but with less contact.
I like the trade down slightly strategy. Not sure Mosley will fall much further than 16 though.
You can't trade down and expect to land a talent like Mosley.
No Alabama players is a prudent policy
That's a pretty horrible policy to have....they have a lot of busts because they put a ridiculous amount of guys into the NFL every year. Same with LSU. If any other school produced as many NFL players they would have the same problem, its a sheer #'s game. There's quite a few guys on this list I wouldn't have minded drafting....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Alabama_Crimson_Tide_players_in_the_NFL_Draft
I like the idea of a trade down if the draft is falling that way at the time....as long as the trade down does not target just one player.
Unless you drop down one slot that's a dicey game. Always trade down into a targeted tier of players so you have flexibility if things don't go as planned.
So if you drop from 16 to 23 or so, you need to have several options at 23 still on the board at the time, and those options need to be the right value in the 23 range.
problem is with any great team it is very hard to figure out who really counts and who is only riding the coat tails. Just how many players from those great USC teams of the middle 2000's have ever really shined in the NFL?
