The Ohio State - Jerome Baker
Clemson - Kendall Joseph
Texas - Malik Jefferson
Florida State - Matthew Thomas

Most are sideline to sideline assassins & possible Day 1 impact guys.

Thoughts? Opinions?
Malik Jefferson SLB/MLB/WLB Texas* 6015 238 4.57 #46 Jr

not sure about him. Is his play really that disappointing or is he once again asked to do too much on such a bad Texas defense?

Jerome Baker OLB/ILB Ohio State 6005 225 4.62 #17 Jr

He is an interesting prospect but I wonder about his size as a MLB. Do we add yet another WLB?

Kendall Joseph ILB Clemson 5111 225 4.78 #34 rJr

he is even smaller

Matthew Thomas OLB/ILB Florida State 6025 227 4.67 #6 rSr

Now your talking a solid day 2/3 upside pick injuries, suspensions issues
injuries, suspensions

A team suspension for violation of team rules 2014.

He was suspended again for the entire 2015 season.

Rashaan Evans ILB/OLB Alabama 6021 232 4.73 #32 Sr

I think he would work well with Klien

over all I am not excited by this class of LB.

I would ... that 2016 defense played a whole lot better when Ellerbe was in the starting lineup. Too bad he couldn't stay somewhat healthy in NO. We need a younger, healthier version of Danelle.

Overall we're better at the LB positions, however not fast enough as a unit.

That is why I would kick the tires on cheap young solid FA like

Christian Jones OLB/ILB Chicago 6031 249 4.68 UDFA

Speed rush skills?

Marquis Haynes DE/OLB? Ole Miss 6021 222 4.63 #10 Sr

Speed IR risk pick

Skai Moore LB South Carolina 6021 218 4.65 #10 Sr

Hagan,

Appreciate the insight brother. Your analysis as it relates to free agents, draft picks etc have been spot on over the years.

I owe you an apology on AJ Klein. You were dead right in your scouting report and I was dead wrong.

It is always a crap shoot and when you debate me you make me dig deep and ponder my reasoning. You have steered me away from more than a few I was high on and you were right.

keep up the challenges I appreciate them. I enjoy them

I have no issue with eating crow as you know.

As for the spot on part? I would not go that far

AJ I wanted in the draft and kept a close eye on. The same goes for DaQuan Jones DT/DE Titians. He is a DT miss played as a 34 DE I pray for FA after their rookie contracts run out if they prove themselves.

If we all keep beating each over the head we can make a dynasty out of the saints

Quenton Nelson G Notre Dame - 6-5 mauler.

I'm watching USC/Stanford ...not impressed at all w/QB Sam Darnold. He needs to stay in school another year.
