Lets start with the ILB postion. Some of the top prospects for this postion will likely go in the first round. My opinion is we will be looking for this postion with the 32nd pick of the 2010 NFL draft in the music city. so with out further adue.
From the University of Florida we have Brandon Spikes, he is listed at 6'3'' 258LBS which is the ideal size in the NFL. He played in 35 games in collage starting 27 of those with 239 tackles 142 of those were solo with 25 of them for loss 3.5 sacks and 4 interceptions.
From the University of Missouri we have Sean Weatherspoon who is listed at 6'2'' 245LBS. For his career he has 388 tackles 12 sacks 4 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles. from what ive read he is good at a lot of things. But does not excell at any one thing think of a james laurenitus. has a high football iq and is rarely out of postion.
From Texas Christian University we Daryl Washington who is 6'3'' 234LBS he is projected as a 2nd to 3rd rounder but is a solid tackler with a deceptive quickness to him..
From the University of Alabama we have my favorite ILB draft prospect Rolondo McClaine coming in T 6'4'' 245LBS who is an absolute BEAST and easily a top 15 pick in the draft and arguably the best LB in the class of 2010. People are saying he would be better suited for the 3-4 D because he lacks over all speed but makes up for it with great instincs
Well that is 4 of the top ILB prospects for the 2010 draft that have proclaimed them selves for the draft. Now here are some OLB prospects that we should look at.
From the University of Texas we have Sergio Kindle coming in at 6'4'' 239LBS listed as a DE/OLB which means he could take a little bit longer to adjust to our 3-4 scheme but is a freak of an athlete and should make those adjustments smoothly in Whiz bring them along slow theory. His last year of college he registerd 47 tackles with 17 of those being for loss 3 sacks and 31 QB hurries
From Texas Christian University we have an very intriging prospect in Jerry Hughs coming in at 6'2'' 258LBS is a DE but will be converted to OLB in the 3-4 scheme due to his size and posted huge numbers in the sack catagory this year with 9 sacks wich is a step down from his 15 in 08.He is a beast of the edge and has decent zone coverage.
From Texas A&M we have Von Miller coming in at 6'2'' 240LBS. He is another DE that would be converted because of his size. He is a terror off the edge and posted 15 sacks in 09. He was comparred to Elvis Dumerville on Walterfootball.com.
From Clemson we have Ricky Sapp weighing in at 246LBS and mesures to 6'4''. He is another DE that would be converted. Allthough he plays DE he played standing up so is used to droping back via the zone blitz
From the University of Okalhoma we have a redshirt sophmore Travis Lewis at 6'2'' 232LBS. That could declare and if he did expect him to be in the top 25. He is a ball hawk and is on alot of plays and is very quik has by far the best coverge skills in his class but most likly he will stay for his junior year. (BUMMER)
From linebacker u Penn State we have Navarro Bomen at 6'1'' 228LBS he is smaller then most but is a savy defender and can lay a hit. He plays fearless.
So i know it taboo to talk about the offseason but dallas is killing the eagles and i hate dallas so this is a lot more fun to me i think that any of these players could play big roles in our 2010-2011 season. So with the 32nd pick of the 2010 NFL draft the World Champion Arizona Cardinals select Sean Witherspoon of mizzu
