This is from NFL Draft Countdown on Blackstock

SCOUTING REPORT
Strengths: Has good size...Tall and rangy frame...Does an excellent job at getting after the quarterback and is a great pass rusher...Good quickness and has a burst...Excellent athletic ability...Very productive.

Weaknesses: A liability versus the run...Not a natural in coverage...Lacks fluid hips...Doesn\'t change direction well...Plays in a 3-4 defense that is perfectly tailored to his skills and may need to be in a similar scheme in the pros.

Notes: Overshadowed by Ahmad Brooks and Kai Parham at times...Would be a perfect fit at outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme...A little overrated due to his pass rush numbers and is basically still a raw, one-trick pony at this point.
Run stopping as a weakness? And we have to play our defense to suit his style?

He is not needed


This is Fincher\'s Profile from the same site...
SCOUTING REPORT
Strengths: Has a lot of experience...Has good size...Is very tough...A team leader and great competitor...Physical and a thumper in the middle...Gets the most out of his ability...Versatile and could play inside or outside.

Weaknesses: Doesn\'t have ideal physical tools...Doesn\'t look natural or fluid in coverage...Didn\'t emerge as a pro prospect until his senior year...May have a limited upside at the pro level.

Notes: Is best friends with QB Dan Orlovsky...Had a big senior season and really saw his stock rise...Won\'t impress you with his physical tools but is a good football player who just gets the job done...May be one of the more underrated players in the Draft.
Now this seems like a great pick to me..

I guess most of you people don\'t watch college football on a regular basis. I\'m a betting man and I\'ve watched UConn extensively this past season. If you think Fincher is a bad player, then you are a moron. Not only is Fincher good, but UConn\'s other two linebackers made up one of the best linebacking core in the country this past season. Solid pick in my opinion... perfect for our team. Now we can move Watson outside where he is better suited.

Let me ask some of you this... although many mock drafts had Blackstock going late first round early second, why do you think he dropped so far? Look at the organizations that passed on him... Patriots, Eagles, Ravens, etc... They are organizations in which he fits there scheme and they still didn\'t pick him. Obviously there is something about him that just doesn\'t entice them. He is a pass rusher and that\'s it. One dimensional period. I\'m not saying he won\'t be a good NFL player, but that is NOT what we need. He can\'t cover period and would be a liability. You guys are too concerned about drafting \"name\" players. We did fine... besides the first round, we deserve a B-. It would be higher if we didn\'t do something weird in the first and lose a third next year.

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

All little common sense goes a long way.
