Not worth a # 10 position pick, very much so worth bringing in for a looksy to see where we <b>SHOULD</b> Draft him at if the workout looks good.

What would you say if he runs in the 4.4-4.5 range at his Pro Day AND looks outstanding in position drills? The guy put up more bench reps at the combine that Dan Connor did at his Pro Day so I would imagine he will increase that on the 2nd. My gut tells me he is going to blow everybody away at his workout.

How is Rivers not worth the 10th pick? He is rated in the 7 - 12 best player in the draft by many in the draft industry.

Draft Countdown
- 9

ConDraft
- 12

NFL Draft Dog - 10

NFL Draft Scout
- 9

Most mock drafts have him going no later than the 12th pick.

I'd bet we take Rivers if he is available. I doubt he makes it to us though...

The only problem with Rivers is playing time. If everything works out, Fujita-Vilma-Morgan would be our starters and Rivers would have to fight to get playing time. I know Morgan is a long shot, but he did have almost two years off. It would a better pick if we fill a need if somebody is around with the same talent. The top 2 LBs went back to school, which sucks for us.

Morgan is only a stop gap measure with MAYBE the possibility of working out for a few years. Rivers is noted as being able to play inside or outside and I think it's a pretty good bet that he will see considerable playing time in his first year if we draft him.

Unless you are a Michigan fan, you shouldn't have a problem with that ranking. I have seen it written in a few analysts statements that Crable is one player in this draft who is on a "bust watch." I guess because Highsmith ran a slower than expected 40 time his play on the field should be forgotten?:idunno: And I'm an Alabama fan so you can't throw that homerism crap back at me.
