    Michael Mauti? No problem, it worked out for Greg Childs.

    Oh, wait!

    3 ACL's? Ouch. I admire anyone who attempts that type of recovery to keep playing a game.

    Just playing devil's advocate here, but one never knows. They did compete for a similar job on their way to being drafted as high as they could. I would hope they were both professional and good teammates about it, but rivalries are not always chummy on a football team.

    I would have expected the Vikings' scouts to check that kind of thing out with players and coaches, so I would not worry about it.

    On a similar note, I wonder how thrilled Hunter was to have Patterson drafted in front of him.
    You have a point, but given everything I have heard about Penn State this past year, coming off of the big scandal, was extremely positive. Being teammates isn't all of it, being THERE was also a big part.

    My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

    Another interesting pick. Besides the injuries, this guy would be a first round pick. Going to be watching this guy closely.

    Here is the current state of his knees and condition:



    Love both Penn State LB picks! Especially Mauti. Would like to see a one or two year contract for Brian Urlacher with a big development / rehab project for Michael Mauti at the same time.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Michael's reaction:
    "I couldn’t be happier to be playing with Gerald," Mauti said. "We had a lot of fun playing together last season and the season before that.

    "He’s a great support structure there and you kind of have a familiar face to go through the process with and I couldn’t be happier in any situation. It’s a great opportunity we both have ahead of us.”

    Gerald's reaction (on twitter):
    "I think it should be illegal for me and Mauti to be on the same team again but hey I don't make the rules we just abide by them!!!! #yesss"

    Nice response. I was unaware of the popularity of this board.

    Then again, did you expect, "That guy is an idiot, and I would rather not play football on any team with him again!"?

    Why are you creating some hatred between these two despite everything the ACTUAL PLAYERS ARE SAYING?
    Disclaimer: I'm an idiot.
