The only thing he doesn't have is superstar potential... but you know exactly what you're going to get from him. People tend to draft on upside... which is why other linebackers are rated higher than him. I would not be disappointed to see us "reach" for Connors. Barring injury, he'll be a hundred tackling machine for the next 10 years.

As far as the draft is concerned, I'm beyond ready to get this thing over with. It's not the suspense, it's just the long dragged out process. I'm ready for camp to start already.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I would bail out of 10 and fall way back into 1 and grab him. I really think the draft rankings are not telling you how good he is. There is nothing much to hype about a blue collar guy. I always like the lunch pail mentality for LBs. I would really be surprised to see him fall into the second like most have him. he is a solid top 20 pick.

man, thats a tough call.. Mayo was an OLB who moved to the middle b/c of lack of team depth at the position but he shined at MLB..
mainly cuz he had to...

i have to agree with papz about conner tho... the guy just makes plays.. i think he is the safest of the 2 but Mayo really has more upside.. i dont think you could go wrong with either pick but conner has always been a good player even when Paul Posluszny was there...

i think it will be interesting to see where the team that drafts Mayo will play him... MLB or OLB


if i had to pick one for the saints then i would take Mayo and play him on the outside.. he has great speed and would compliment vilma very well i think... though u couldnt go wrong either way
