Jordan Cambell is definitely a name to keep an eye out for. He seems like a very talented middle linebacker prospect. Scherebis Has a high motor and might surprise as an undrafted type.






I'm Kinda surprised that you didn't include names like

Ezekiel Ansah
Corey Lemonier
Devin Taylor
& Armonty Bryant


2012 NFL Draft: South Carolina's Devin Taylor a Man Without a Position | Bleacher Report



as 3-4 outside linebacker types.

Steven Means
of Buffallo seems like a sleeper 3-4 linebacker to me too and has 18 career sacks.

As are nearly every successfull 3-4 olber ever.

Terrell Suggs, Aldon Smith, Clay Matthews, Rickey Jackson...drafting for the 3-4 is mostly about making projections for 4-3 tweeners.

Ansah is not a 3-4 OLB.
With his athleticism he could play 3-4 OLB or he could add 15 pounds or so and play the 5 tech opposite of Cam putting Hicks at NT. I'm glad that Hicks has the versatility to play either position on the 3-4 defensive line.

Ansah and Mingo are legit top 15 picks, not 2nd rounders. I stopped watching after that.

Maybe in ESPN & Mass Media eyes.. I my eyes they are not. Sorry..just because its on TV doesn't make it fact. People thought I was crazy when I gave Russell Wilson a 1st Rd grade in January...

Why do you think Taylor was so ineffective across from Clowney this year? Who would you say is the Saints best option at pick 15 in helping the new 3-4 defense? Thanks.

I think most of Taylor's issue came with the weight gain. When he was about 255-265 he was more explosive. He dominated all week at the East-West Shrine Game.

I think the Saints have to address that secondary. I honestly think they already have some solid pieces in place in the Front-7 for a 3-4 switch (Now some guys like Will Smith may have to take a pay cut) but I think they need playmakers in the backend.. So if I were picking at 15, I'd look for guys like Jonathan Banks CB Miss. St., David Amerson CB/FS NC State. If I wanted to go front 7, I'd go Dion Jordan or Datone Jones. Now..if I had that Harrah's itch..I'd go Tyrann Mathieu (I'd take the gamble only because I don't have a 2nd Rd pick)

Little Dayne doing work :worthy::worthy:

Em, I agree with the above, but do you think the saints need an upgrade at NT over Bunkley? Personally, Im holding out hope that Ed Reed comes home to upgrade the secondary, but with the salary cap situation that may not be possible
