This guy seems to be flying under the radar a little bit for some reason. Could be a real steal if he is there for our 2nd rounder.

Sexy drawings aside, I don't think he's that under the radar. If I'm not mistaken, he really disappointed at the senior bowl, maybe that's why talk on him has cooled.

It think he has the size to get moved around in a 3-4 and could be some good value. Of course I drafted him for the Dolphins, so I'm a bit biased.

And I want have sex with that drawing too.

It's moments like these when I realize technology still has a long way to go before we're truly free.

Here's a video of theReverend as he goes off to have sex with the picture in his dreams. I'm the old guy in the toga and some black guy (JasoninLA) is at the end.

I don't remember him performing poorly at the senior bowl. I think he had a decent combine. I know one thing - he shows up on game day. Seems like there are a lot of DE / OLB types in this draft and maybe he is undervalued. Last year he was overshadowed by Long and this year UVA had a poor season. I think he is going to be a steal for somebody in Round 2.

Btw, I'm so glad the avatars are back! They make for great threads.

If we don't get Everrette Brown in the 1st, Sintim or Barwin would be solid choices in the 2nd round.

Sintim is more versatile than most of the other rush OLBs and could be moved to SOLB opposite Jarvis Moss if we have to.

An early warning: Every linebacker I've taken in the mock draft has ended up plummeting to late day 2.

The bold stat is what makes me think this is a pass situation. Besides, we don't want UVA trash on the team. They bring down the toughness on any team.

Yea, I didn't do well at the senior bowl. Not to good in coverage and I don't htink he did to well in run defense. He's kind of a one trick pony. Only able to pass rush. I will pass on him. Barwin on the other hand would be a good second round pick.

I've always been really high on Sintim. The transition to our D would be very easy for a guy like this. He can still play OLB in a 4-3 and OLB/ILB in a 3-4. He's a great blitzer, great tackler, and explodes through ball carriers. He's basically a poor-man's Aaron Curry and he could really be a stud in the NFL. He could use a little brushing up on his pass-coverage because he was used primarily as a flats-coverage and blitzing LB at Virginia, which might very well be what we expect him to do here with the ILB covering the intermediate middle coverages. If we could somehow add Sintim and a Jasper Brinkley to go alongside DJ Williams and hopefully a Moss or Doom, we might very well have a fierce LB corps. The only problem with Sintim is he won't last till the 48th and its way too soon to pick him at 12. I guess it's just another reason to trade down if the value isn't there at 12.

What I like is that he is one of the few linebackers coming out who could, I think, play either OLB spot in the 3-4. Clay Matthews is another. I think we will end up trading back.

Yeah, he actually could play any position in a 3-4 because he is big enough, stout enough, and shed blocks well enough to play ILB as well. But putting him at ILB wouldn't be ideal because his ability to rush the edge is pretty much wasted.
