    As far as all this cover two nonsense, they don't need blazing speed, they need to be able to cover about a 10 yard wide space. It's zone. If the guy runs a 4.2 or a 4.7 it makes no difference. What you want is a guy who is:

    Quick
    Has Great Hands
    Is tall
    Can Jump


    Your not going to see an OLB running with a WR 30 Yards downfield, if you do something has gone horribly wrong.

    My own opinion of the guy is I'd rather have EJ Henderson play that spot.
    Sounds like Chad Greenway. In the combine he seemed a lot more natural at reacting and swiveling his hips on the passing drills. He's 6'4", good hands.. don't know about the jumping part. His 40 time wasn't the greatest, but he seems to play the game at a quicker speed.

    A draft magazine says he has way too many concusions.
    I have heard this also, does anyone know how many concusions he has had or if he has missed practise or game time due to them

    Ernie Sims may not be as tall as we all might want but he can really lay a hit on someone and he's bulked up to around 230 now. He runs in the 4.4s. I went to the Virginia vs. Florida State game. He was all over the place. The man can really play!

    Sims should move to safety

    Re: Who DOESN'T Want Him For Linebacker?

    I wanted him before I heard about the concussions, those worry me a lot.

    Now for LB, I think I'd rather have Greenway in the first, and Bobby Carpenter or D'Quell Jackson in the second round.

    Carpenter may not last into the second, as I've seen many mock drafts with him being taken in the late first.
