    Hodges is a hard nose player with good ball instincts. He has over 100 tackles in each of his last two seasons with Penn State.
    I have heard people say they think he is undersized even though he is listed at 238. Either they fudged his weight upwards or they think he can not pack on more pounds.

    Size wise he would fit the mold of another Tampa 2 type player, Derrick Brooks. Not saying he is a similar player, just making the comparison for those that use the words undersized.

    I look forward to seeing how this guy fits our team.

    The scuttlebutt is that he did not play at that weight, and he packed on some pounds for the combine.

    Mauti plays MLB and he is a damn good one. Big 10 LB of the year and 1st team all American last year. If he stays healthy, he can be our guy. Still wouldn't mind seeing Urlacher or Dansby.

    Seems the big knock on him is his frame can't add more weight. In the end, I'm not sure why you would want him to add more but I guess its important.

    I think it depends on two things....

    1. How healthy is Mauti.

    2. Will Erin move inside if he isn't ready to go this year.

    If he is healthy that will allow Erin to stay outside and then I assume they will ask Gerold to drop a few pounds and focus on ST's and learning from the bench.

    If Mauti can't go, Erin will move inside and I bet Gerald gets his shot to start.

    Seen some film on this guy, he is often lined up at CB in the dime package, says a lot on how his coaches trust his coverage abilities.

    I don't think that anyone questions his coverage abilities. At least for me, I'm more concerned about the other half of his role when playing the game.....Run Defense.....

    It's a passing league people keep telling me. Hodges should give us some more options with packages early on if nothing else.

    Agree, but in the end, our pass defensive woes are going to be solved by a certain Warpig drafted in the first round.
