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.

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?

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

Well, I've got it... my perfect draft day scenario for the B & G.

We trade back w/ the Lions getting their 20th overall and 3rd round pick. I'd like to think there's some hope for getting their 20th and 33rd overall, like if we package our 1st w/ one or even two of our later round picks. Personally I'd like this but doubt it could happen. Anyway here's what we get:

1st round: Oher or Rey-Rey if only one or the other is available. If both are available... I honestly can't choose and promise to love either with all my heart LOL.

3rd round picks: best center available and DE Sidbury

5th round: best FB/RB available. I'm going the opposite direction as the change-of-pace crowd, as I've argued before. Personally I think CP can still be the slashing homerun hitter he was in the past... he hasn't had that luxury w/ us for the most part but with 1) the upgraded line we should have by opening day 2) Betts and the bruising FB type we draft wearing the opposing LB corp down early on... I think Portis can be that guy (and I think he'll be more valuable to us in the long run as well). I see CP as a change-of-pace RB in the first half and then taking over more in the 2nd half of games.

6th round: best available WR we think could return punts

7th round: best available safety

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

1st rounder trade down with Detroit get larry English
3rd rounder get loadholt or other good OT lang from eastern Michigan is pretty good too
3rd rounder get brandon Williams DE Texas tech, or Lawrence sidbury,
5th rounder get joe Burnett CB/RS UCF
6th rounder a center or another OT
7th rounder the best OLB available or pat macaffee kicker WVU



FA's to pickup after draft
Both OLBs from Hawaii, Adam Leonard especially
Dan Kelly kicker from Hawaii and any other kickers
WRs like brandon Tate, Aaron Kelly, kevin ogletree, or jamarko simmons

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

Whatever "big four" tackle drops, or a pass rusher if they're gone, is what I'd do. Unfortunately, our holes are so glaring that it rather telegraphs what we're shooting for. Other teams might leap frog us if, say, only one top OT is left a pick or two ahead.

Thanks! Yeah, Maualuga would be an OLB for us his first year, but I put MLB up because that's his natural position, and he will eventually replace Fletcher at MLB.

Maybin significantly improves 40 time at PSU Pro Day - Bob Flounders: On Penn State football - PennLive.com
Bingo. HGH. The guy is a juicer.
