was watching the Rutgers-Virginia Tech bowl earlier.
Rutgers has a really good LB, Khaseem Greene. He is an outside linebacker who has a nose for the ball. the announcers were talking about how he played free saftey his sophomore year and converted to LB last year. He looks a little small but he is a sure tackler. He seems like a playmaker. I know LB's aren't taken all that high anymore in the draft but damn, this guy looks like he will have an impact where ever he goes. We could use a guy like him on the outside. A few weeks ago CJ Mosely's name was getting thrown around here in the discussion. Well, he's staying put and this guy could very well be the top OLB in his class.
I mean what if we traded a few picks down like you guys were saying earlier in the thread? I'm a fan of drafting a lineman myself but a LB would be the next position I would want after that. I got tired of watching us get gashed against the run this year, I don't know about y'all. We were usually in a nickel defense when offenses took advantage. But there were other times when we had the base 4-3 in there and teams ran off tackle and the OLB's were getting washed out or missing tackles/taking bad angles.
Greene is coming to the Senior Bowl. I can't wait to see what he does.
Edit: another thing about this dude, I didn't see him take hardly any false steps in his reads. He just seemed like a helluva of an instinctive LB.
