    Will Rufus Alexander be the next Zach Thomas?

    He's supposedly a little small for the NFL...but the dude made plays in college.
    I think he might come in and play with a chip on his shoulder and make some people sit up and notice!
    I would love it if we could have a tackling machine like Zach Thomas on our team in the MLB spot!

    Absolutely love this guy. I guarantee you he will make an impact next year! Somehow he fell through to the 5th...just wow.

    I don't know if he's as physical as Zach Thomas but I can tell ya he will fit perfectly into the cover 2.
    Because I'm a Vikings fan, they are that much sexier.

    Re: Will Rufus Alexander be the next Zach Thomas?

    i dont think we should be making zach thomas comparisons here..1) thats very bold, 2) this guy doesnt play anything like thomas..he had alot of tackles, but hes not a guy thats gonna be able to take stronger RBs and TEs down head to head..he should be an excellent coverage guy (something weve needed for the longest time), and he will fit in perfectly with this defense
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Zach Thomas is 5'11" (that's generous) and 228 lbs...Rufus is similarly built...so he should be able to do what Thomas does if he is as aggressive.
    His production in a major college program shows he can play at the highest level of the NCAA...and hopefully will translate at the next level.

    I think the SOD will be Troy Smith. But who knows. We will see!

    does anyone else think that he could possibly be asked to loose a little weight and switch to SS?
