There are some who don't think he will display well athletically at the combine - so Monday's Game and the Combine will mean the difference in several million dollars...

Manti Te’o will be a first-round pick, but some question his speed | ProFootballTalk

Interesting.
Im still thinking that trading back to gain a second rounder if possible is the way to go,unless the player on the board is just too good to turn down.
Hard to tell what need done yet though,need to get the cap room opened up and some free agents in.

Have we ever taken a LB in the 1st round? Ever?

Maybe thats why our LB's suck year in and year out.

Yeah, not too many LBs with the 1st round pick.

Fields was a good pick, despite him being a square peg being punched into a round hole - his athleticism, speed were so great that he still played well...

He went to Carolina and then retired due to his battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma...

He was a great player and I was miffed we lost him to Carolina...

Benson needs to start banging the drum as an owner and get our picks back unless Louis Freeh and his people gave him bad news...

Charlie Campbell Scouting Report:

Strengths:
Extremely explosive
Non-stop motor
Very fast
Instincts
Can play defensive end and tackle
Gives relentless effort
Very disruptive
Phenomenal closing speed
Great get off
A very rare athlete
Makes plays in and out of his gap
Pad level
Quickness
Uses hands well in combination with his feet
Plays with good leverage
Strong pass-rusher on the interior
Repertoire of pass rushing moves
Scheme versatility

Weaknesses:
Strength to anchor
Raw, a little unpolished
Could use a little more weight
Suspended for one game in 2012

The Saints would be a great fit for Richardson, too. He could play defensive end in potential running situations and move inside to tackle on pass plays. Richardson would be a huge upgrade for New Orleans' defensive line, and the team badly needs a player like him on defense.
Could one guy be that much a difference on the front line?!?

Well, I thought that a tweener from the draft might be the best answer to the front 4 woes, since it would almost be two guys with one pick, but they'd still need another impact player like Johnson via FA.
