Epic is just playing the flavor of the week game like he does in the politics forum so he can say he made some great visionary draft call.

Last week, Burfict.

This week, Trent Richardson.

Next week: . . .

I can't believe people are talking about Burfict in the top 10. He's probably not a first rounder.

I love Te'o (big ND homer) but he's no Patrick Willis. I'm not sure if he's a better prospect than Lauriniatis, who was a 2nd rounder.

ILBs do not go in the first unless they're absolutely, unquestionably, all world. There is no such guy in the 2012 draft class.

We'll probably have our choice between Burfict, Te'o, and maybe even Kuechly with our 2nd rounder.

Kuechly has been an unprecedented LB in college football over the past several years. He is easily one of the best players defensively and will play as long and be as productive as Brian Urlacher. No doubt. He plays every down with fire, passion and intensity. I have not seen someone this good in a very, very long time.

Kuechly I could see winding up in the first round, but his combine numbers have to pack up his game tape if he's going to make the top 15. I'm a huge fan of Te'o but I'd be surprised if he went anywhere before the early 2nd, which is where Burfict falls to me as well.

Kuechly is a first-round lock. A guy who has 99 tackles in 6 games isn't going to have to depend on the combine to do well. He's averaged ~175-180 tackles every year and he can play the pass. He's great. I think Teo can go in the first round as well, probably in the 20-32 range.

As a huge pac-12 guy, I have seen A LOT of Burfict. Let me tell you something. Too say that this kid is good, is an understatement. To say he is a little out of control, is like saying Barry Bonds took a few drugs. That kid is certifiable. He also is amazing. It is hard to watch really. He will dominate a game from the Middle linebacker spot like a Ray Lewis in his prime, but then he gives it all back on a personal fowl and an ejection when he goes nuts on a Referee for calling an offsides. I mean, I can't even do justice to the kind of wacked out, out of his MIND this kid is!!! If they can find some sort of medication that will even him out, and still get the results. Sure, but other than that, stay AWAY from this kid!

Other than his 5.0 forty speed, missed tackles, lost in space zone coverage and even his coaches BENCHING him in las Vegas bowl he would be great. What do I know though OM posters know more than college and pro coaches.

Don't forget the media interviews his coaches instructed him to intentionally miss because of their fear of him saying really stupid schit.

Yeah, other then all of that crap combined, he could be a decent player.........nah. Dudes a joke.

You know who was an amazing athlete, Ryan Leaf. Speed doesn't make a football player. Oh, and you missed the part where I said we SHOULDN'T get him. Stay awake captain.

If he's available in the 3rd round at our pick you need to gamble. His physicality is off the charts ...at worst we have a special teams hammer. At best we have a mike singletary type....

Why draft him there when you could get him for free.

IF we draft him at any level over a 7 pick then we have no skills at scouting.

Yes he has potential ...to try to get a payday.

This kid is the very definition of a loose cannon.
