Re: McCune's stats

I just can't get over the fact Greg Williams said he'll take a look at Lemar Marshall at MLB. I was hoping we'd try to draft a guy like Nebraska's Barrett Ruud. He went a little early, but it's no need to dwell on what's not now.

Re: McCune's stats

I think that Marshall is a natural MLB who was basically asked to play outside last year due to injuries

Re: McCune's stats

My guess is that he will take the path Pierce took. Sit on the sidelines for a year or so and watch the senior varsity play then he will become an excellent starter in the league very quickly and possibly a PB'er if he is really good.

Heh! Pierce sat on the sidelines for quite some time. He was always an above average 'backer, but no one had the heart to try him there! I think he's a good player, smart, but still made to look better because of the scheme.

Schemes more so than not make the player, that's why I was so against drafting DG in the first, Williams has the ability to put a decent LB into the right situation and utilize all his talent, I had said early on we could get a LB in the later rds. to replace Pierce, but McCune has some work to do to supplant Marshall, at least early on, Marshall may not be the ideal MLB but he has experience in our defense and should adapt much quicker than McCune, I believe Williams will make a good LB out of him, my concern about him is this, he has straight line speed but is he fluid enough to stop and cut when attempting to cover a reciever? Which is a big deal in Williams defense, it is also one of the reasons Trotter was sent packing, and this kid has a lot of similarities to Trotter, hopefully he will cover just fine, I just like to evaluate everything about a player, and I guess the biggest question is is he an instinctive football player or did he get by in college on shear athletisism? I am rooting for him though if he can play like his body say's he can he will be a monster.

Re: McCune's stats

Even if he never plays a down on defense, I like him as a special teams addition. Can you imagine this guy running full tilt at you? The only concern is that he outruns the kick!

Re: McCune's stats

It's not what you look like on paper its how you perform in pratice and on game day.I have always liked these kind of guys who work their way into the NFL. We know he does not lack effort from how he got here. We can only hope that he will turn into that gem we are hoping he will be and becomes a beast in our defense and special teams.

A natural? Hmmm. I will say that he's plays within the scheme but, as a 'natural' MLB you carry a heavy load of tackling and taking on and slipping blocks. He should get his weight up because of that but, in Greg Williams defense the DL carries the load. Marshall won't be asked to shoot the gap every down like Trotter does in PHI. I just wish he gets rid of that ugly number 98 jersey.

Re: McCune's stats

Yeah by "natural" I meant I think he played MLB in high school and college before he was asked to move outside last year...just to clarify
