how about this guy late?

hyper athletic low round OT (mainly due to a lot of injury induced missed games). he'll probably go higher than projected right now, but in the 5th or 6th, i'd take a chance there.

I think he was around 225 in college right?

Anyhow, at his Pro Day today he weighed in at 252 and ran a 4.59

Yeah. From GTripp's worst case scenario thread w/ all the OT, DE talent and Rey off the board I thought a little about this. It would be a nice move IMO if we got a 2nd round pick for Golsten or Monty... otherwise it's pretty serious overkill right man?

Just saying... (and I know that people generally don't disagree with this)

If we think that Smith is a risk at 13, Maybin takes that to another level entirely.

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

Check out what Maybin has been up to. Dude has gained 25 pounds in like 7 weeks AND suddenly runs a 40 faster than he did at the combine. This reeks of HGH if you ask me. Look at those pics. That simply doesn't happen naturally in less than two months.

Maybin significantly improves 40 time at PSU Pro Day - Bob Flounders: On Penn State football - PennLive.com

IF Monty steps up. Yeah. If he does'nt, not really. Jerry gets to the QB pretty well. It would be pretty hard to block them both. I don't care where the sacks come from, DE, LB, or DT. Just get 'em.

I hope big Al takes Monty under his wing so the kid finally plays to his potential... Al's presence could pay dividends in so many ways.

I hope so man. Monty could be a hell of a player if he really applied himself.

I'd say Maybin's Pro Day has made him intriguing..at 13

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

Are we talking about Maybin as LDE or OLB in our system?

OLB I'm pretty sure.

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

Well dudes the thing that concerns me about converting these college DEs into an OLB in our system is we have to idea whether they can cover anyone cuz they've never had to in college. I mean our system really requires a lot from our OLBs and it seems like a big assumption a guy like Maybin will make the transition successfully.

Re: If Nothing Changes Come Draft Day, Who Would You Draft

I share your concern. What really concerns me about Maybin is that he had one big year at DE as a sophmore, comes out, all of a sudden he puts on about 22 pounds and gets faster, then get's projected into the first round as a OLB prospect. What the hell has this guy been eating? Sounds like an awful lot in a short amount of time.

This is why he's a bad investment at 13, because our current scheme will have him on the pass rush way more than average. You change the scheme, and then you have no idea if he needs to go to DE, or if he can even play DE or what. Can't put that much money into that guy.

Am I the only guy who is disturbed by his improvements over the last month? Which player do you think you are getting, the guy who played his entire career at 220-ish and ran in the 4.7, or the one that can run 4.5 and weigh 250 off a strict training regimen that he likely never will be on again. The first is a second round talent, but the latter option represents a top ten pick.

So, who are you getting really? The guy who sacked a bunch of QBs last year, or the no-name Redshirt Freshman from 2007?
