This is the prevailing thoughts right now . Mosley can play MLber but Denver ses him as a WSL and vice vera for Shazier

I doubt that. If he was viewed as a WLB then there is no need to visit with him for two days.
Von is the Sam, Trev the Will. Unless you move Trev or replace him there is no reason to look at Mosley.
I bet they want to get a close look at him and see just what he can bring to the D.

Mosley would be an instant far-cheaper upgrade at half-field LB over Woodyard.

He'll also be drafted in the top #25, or more likely top #20.

He is going to get owned by NFL TE's. I doubt he had to cover one SEC TE that was NFL quality in college.

I bet Mosley ends up being closer to DeMeco Ryans then he does Patrick Willis.

WLB, except we already have a stud WLB.
He would only need to be 220-225 for that role.
A lot of people feel he needs to slim down and play S.

Certainly an intriguing 2nd round prospect. He can fly and tackle, which is really what you are looking for in an LB.

Where do you play him though. Trevathan has the WILL position locked down. Unless the team is considering another move the WILL to MIKE position bull****.

Well... Trev does call the plays and would be on the field for the most snaps most likely.

But yes, that would be some bull****.

I have mentioned to you Price, Telvin Smith and Kevin Pierre-Louis. They are mid round draft picks who play coverage in Nickel packages with Trevethan.

Have no doubt that Telvin Smith could play S for us.

How about Nevada OT Joel Bitonio. A guy picking up steam that can play either G or RT

I watched a little video of Pierre-Louis right after the combine, and didn't really think he was a difference maker.

I know you mentioned Telvin Smith, and I kind of brushed him off because of his size, but the Broncos are interested. And it makes sense. Maybe he could be similar to Ogletree in a couple years after he puts on some weight.

Not sure why people would have problems with Trevathan at MIKE. He's literally built perfectly for the position, including his outstanding leadership qualities. I said he reminded me of Al Wilson right after he was drafted and it's true.

Not in the 1st. His arms are 34". Not ideal for an OT. I like 35" and above at OT. With 35"+ arms at OT, a guy with average foot quickness can survive against most players. That's why Franklin has been able to survive at RT for so long. Anything like 34" or below, and these guys can't control the DE like they need to.

You want to throw somebody out there that you don't have to worry about, even if he has a bad snap. It's like boxing at OT, where the mission is to keep the DE at arm's length. It's one of the reasons Chris Clark has been able to become a starter, he has the necessary physical dimensions to excel.

I think Bitonio and Martin are strictly OG's, which surprises me why they're rated so high.

Perfect size? That is my only problem with him is HIS SIZE.

he is listed at 241 on wiki, and thats not bad but he seems smaller than that on the field.

I think his man and zone coverage skills are superb. Could be Fox's version of Thomas Davis here.

Word. Yeah he seems like the kind of tweener guy that a creative d-coordinator could turn into a real stud.

He's 6002" 245 lbs. And runs a 4.6, which is about as good as you can get for his height/weight. The only guys who are bigger and faster than that who play LB, are generally elite 1st round picks, which rarely come around.

Any bigger and he'd be too slow to cover, thus becoming a liability who can be singled out. It's not wise to waste a draft pick on a physically limited LB. If he runs a 4.7, I don't want him. 4.6 and below. All LB's need to be able to do is fly to the ball and make contact. You have to be able to cover an entire half-field on 70% of snaps.
