Better with a poll! Id pick C, since we need a buck. If we needed a mack, I'd pick A.

Based only on these stats, I would go with C, then A, then B.

Player C wasn't always an inside linebacker in college though which would explain his higher interception and PDU totals.


True, he played a few different positions. 8 of the FF came while he played LB. But you are right, he got 4 INTs at a different position.


He's a versatile player at least. Those force fumbles really stand out.


Agreed. Thanks for not blowing my cover. Wink

Film will show.


Good guess, you are on the right track. Player B played 2 season as a starter.

I will take player C.

Yes his 40 time is slower. But he has a great 20 and that is what I think matters more as a LB. He is also a tackle and sack machine and he is a big guy.

Is this "C" ?

STRENGTHS: Rare athleticism for the position. Possesses the agility and straight-line speed to elude blockers and beat backs to the edge. Showed improved patience and awareness in his second season at linebacker, rarely taking false steps and exploding towards the ball.
Reliable open-field tackler, generally wrapping both arms around the ballcarrier. Best trait might be his incredible ability to create turnovers. Rips violently at the ball as he makes tackles, showing excellent hand-eye coordination and impressive strength.

Times his blitz well, showing a quick burst to close. Fluid in coverage due to his experience at safety and possesses good ball skills. Shows some natural open-field running skills once the ball is in his hands, as well.


WEAKNESSES: Obvious size limitations. Isn't just short; possesses a rocked-up frame that isn't likely to be able to handle much additional weight.

Can get lost in the traffic in tight quarters, losing sight of the ball. A bit inconsistent in his overall physicality. Prefers to slip by blockers, rather than physically taking them on. Sometimes spends too much time going for the strip, rather than simply driving the ballcarrier to the turf.

Teams will want to check his medical grade due to the broken ankle suffered in 2011.

COMPARES TO: Ernie Sims, ILB, Dallas Cowboys -- Possessing great speed, explosiveness and playmaking ability, Sims looked like a future star after being drafted No. 9 overall by the Detroit Lions in 2006. Unfortunately, his size limitations have caught up with him and he's now on his fourth team in as many years.

Correct. Nice detective work. Wink I disagree with Rang that his size is a big issue. He is bigger than Sims.

Correct MJY.

Alright since all 3 have been guessed, here are the 3 players:

Player A - Sean Spence

Player B - Arthur Brown

Player C - Khaseem Greene

So what do you think now that you know?

I think both Brown and Green would be great addtions if the price is right.

Its time to think outside the box with these traditional "mack" "buck" job descriptions.

Give me instincts, speed, and angles every day of the week.

I went with C. I like the size, his speed is a little slower but I like the turnovers like others said.

My guess is its:

A: Arthur Brown
B: Alec Ogletree
C: Manti Teo

Aww man, I was off. Damn

i think Arthur Brown bulked for the combine and he's naturally Sean SPence's size. I'd take Kaseem Greene in this scenario although, I still don't think any of them are what this team is missing. We need a big Ilb, around 245 to 250 +.

I'd be shocked if any of the three were drafted by us. If we don't take Minter or Teo in round 2, I want:

1. Kevin Reddick, ILB, Unc *** versatile to play OLB or Ilb I Like him
2. Johnathan Bostic, ILB, Florida
3. Nico Johnson, Ilb, Alabama
4. Aj Klein, Ilb, Iowa St
5. Vince Williams, Ilb, FSU
6. Michael Matui, Ilb, PU
7. Cornelius Washington, ILB, Georgia*** versatile to play OLB or Ilb I Like him
