this whole DJ thing just sucks. That and the fact that Elway did could of had a great young LBer in Lavonte David (or whatever the hell his name is) is just frustrating.

He would be a great replacement for DJ, not sure if he would translate inside in the pros. If he could, it would be great to have a fast sideline to sideline MLB again.

He's not ready, imo. Should really stay in college another year.

Well, of course the Hail Mary isn't going to happen. When crunch time comes, and the game is on the line, there are only two men on this team I trust: Prater and Beadles. It can't fail!

Well most people think he can play any LB spot in the NFL.

I would agree with that...he will likely move over (if he beefs up a little) and fill the Niko, Mcclain, Hightower spot next season.

How do you feel about Jonathan Brown from Illinois?

Wonder if DJ was covering up weed or PEDs.

I don't know about Brown but, I have been impressed with Buchanan at DE.

He's GOTTA stay in school another season. Overaggressive. He looks more talented than he is because he's always attacking... but he misses and freelances pretty often because of it. He's an ideal ST guy that could make for a pretty good LB if a coach can reign him in and get him playing within himself.

With another year to do that, though, and he could easy find himself in the first round.

That is my fear, another fast linebacker running the wrong way or overrunning.

I want a QB of the defense, Mauti at least would fit that billing

Yeah. He's more Sean Lee than Pos.

...there are hundreds of people that drive around drunk every week in Denver. I bet you have driven around drunk before. I bet your friends have driven drunk before.

I think he was referencing the other 85% of his tackles. Just a small percentage. What did you mean?

I don't see any prospect having the ability to be a three down MLB outside of Te'o and make an IMMEDIATE impact, since we are in win now mode.

Reddick has nice athleticism but he's a project, Skov is a 3-4 strong side LB/ILB,
Mauti is a project...I am very intrigued by Andrew Jackson, but I would need to see more fluid hips and ball skills. But he is a leader and an aggressive play maker!

Sadly though, to some on here, as long as he's from U Miami, or tackles better than Mays, his off field transgressions don't matter.

He could rape a child tomorrow and some clown like SoCal would probably downplay it as just "making a bad decision"

I'm curious as to what you define a project linebacker as.

Also I it is interesting you will write off Skov for being a strong side 3-4 guy, Andrew Jacksons size will likely put him in the 3-4 in the pros.
