The only way to really minimize Gronk is a big fast SS which Kenny is not. Kenny is not fast nor is he big. He is a quick pest best up at the line. No I will not pull out my drum and start beating it, its in the shop getting ready for the draft. good year for SS.

My 2 favs to bang around with top TEs in the NFL are

Ronnie Harrison SS/FS/CB Alabama 6011 214 4.54 #15 Jr
Tre Flowers SS/FS Oklahoma St. 6021 198 4.54 #31 Sr

One with upside in coverage or one out to prove he has the coverage skills
Kyzir White SS/OLB West Virginia 6025 215 4.56 #8 Sr

All three are lights out hitters. They love making players blow snot bubbles.

You never stop Gronk you can only hope to minimize his impact. Kenny is not the answer

I've been really impressed by Anzalone, mainly his mobility. He is a rookie, and he missed a substantial amount of time in college due to injuries, so he needs to be coached up. I don't see any reason why Nolan wouldn't be able to mold him into a legit star if he remains healthy.

Anzalone has the athleticism, but I am nervous about him moving from MLB at Florida to NFL OLB. OLB takes a different discipline. That's a lot of learn all while the defense you are playing on so far is getting shredded left and right.

I think I remember reading or hearing that he played both inside and outside at Florida. Can't guarantee it though.

I heard something interesting about the Anthony trade yesterday on NFL Radio. They said that Joe Vitt was most likely very instrumental in the Dolphins desire to trade for him. It turns out that Vitt is an "unofficial consultant" for the Dolphins now. They even used the verbal air quotes. I had forgotten that Vitt is Miami head coach Adam Gase's father-in-law. The Dolphins were just forced to suspend starting LB Laurence Timmons for unknown reasons (he disappeared from the team hotel and they even put out a missing persons report on him). They were already very short-handed at LB and desperate. Apparently, Vitt may have lobbied for Anthony because he was the one that wanted him to be drafted.

I think management screwed up Anthony's development.

A lot was made about his tackles being down the field, but the guy was the first Saints rookie in over a decade to log over 100 tackles.

They then brought Laurinitus in and stunted Anthony's growth by trying to move him outside, where he barely got 1 snap a game.

They should have stuck with him, I think Miami will turn him into a stud.

We'll see. Don't forget Vitt the LB Killer is in the house. ;)

So, make him. That's why it's called a "draft." If coaches, Saints players, and money cannot make him part of our "all volunteer" force then we can always select another RB who we then cut.

That sends a bad message. All 32 teams passed for a reason.
