Just an interesting note...

No LB drafted in the first round (I believe this goes back at least 3 years, probably more - I can't remember) has ran over a 4.7 40.

So, if that holds true in April, Te'o would be there in the second round. If he falls to the Lions pick... would you take him?

I personally wouldn't, but I'm curious to see what others would say.

No, and I'd have reservations about drafting him if he was still there in the third.

Yup, he just isn't a verytalented player. Also is a headache in the media, like, Tebow-esque.

I probably would in 2nd in a trade down but not right where they sit.

Sure he has questions but I think his workouts suffered a bit because of the media circus. It was dumb what he did but other players have real legal issues etc.

He is not fast and I doubt he improves the 40

If it was after halfway point in 2nd in would consider it hard

You know, I just kept thinking "Rolando Mcclain was slower than that..." Apparently he ran a 4.68, so you're completely right.

And no I wouldn't.

DJ Fluker is doing an interview right now.... I can barely understand him.

At the moment, I am all about Amerson in the 2nd. I think he is going to be really good, and he is the type of size/speed CB w/ ball skills that I love. I am officially driving his bandwagon.

I feel like the Tebow media is mainly
blown up because he is a QB and runs a funky offense and uses the media to promote region.

I doubt Teo does anything really to the media in the NFL. He wasn't a diva at ND before the conspiracy.

I honestly think the Teo hate will be gone after a few years in the pros. I would love him next to Tulloch on our D and would love him in round 2.

Agreed.

You don't just choose to not be blown up in the media. It's like a disease.

The story will go away eventually. People will forget about it. He doesn't have a history of issues so it doesn't appear to be a trend yet. If he focuses on football I don't see the media bringing it up much if at all after the draft once training camp and the season starts and he puts the pads back on.

I just can't see the media moving away from him. They will move away from the story, but will follow him. He also doesn't seem to handle the questions well either.

So after the combine, who is on people's dont want list or man crush list or intriguing list?


Dont Want (in addition to guys I already didnt want like Honey Badger, etc.):

* Any QB
* Any RB (I like Lacy, Franklin, and Ellington to varying degrees but dont want to spend what it would take to get them).
* Damontre Moore


Intriguing:

* Cornelius Washington, UGA, DE (played OLB for UGA), continued his impressive post-season (had a good senior bowl too)

* JJ Wilcox, Georgia Southern, S (only played 1 year of S, but played very well at a low level of competition, solid combine) also has KR abilities.

I really like a bunch of WR in this class and would be happy with any # of them in rounds 2-7.
