IMO the two best LB's in College Football right now are these two guys. The question is who? or who will be better in the pros?. AJ Hawk will probably be the first to pop into everyones heads but Posluszny is extremely under rated. I recently read Fox Sports' College Football mid-season awards and it was back and forth on these two guys for best defensive player. I decided to watch these two guys in action on Saturday for the first time and could not make a decision off one game, plus, they are very different LB's but I did notice Hawk was a more well rounded LB but also noticed Posluszny's complete domination of the running game. You guys can give me your opinions whle I present some stats:

Paul Posluszny- 88 Tackles/ 6.5 TFL/ 2 Sacks
AJ Hawk- 75 Tackles/ 9 TFL/ 4.5 Sacks/ 1 INT

Also, when Penn St. played Ohio State a couple of weeks ago: (from collegefootballnews.com) "Hawk got outplayed by Penn State LB Paul Posluszny, who made 14 tackles, one sack and two tackles for loss, but the Buckeye star still led the team in tackles with nine to go along with 2.5 tackles for loss in the 17-10 loss. "

I dont think Posluszny will leave. Penn State has just started getting good again, not sure if Paul would want to leave thinking what could've been.

Paul won't leave, but I would love to see us draft him in 2007. :D

I would rate Bobby Carpenter over Paul, but I would love to have any one of these guys.

Ive been watching D'Qwell Jackson play and he is a good LB but he is a bit overrated because of his number of tackles. Good LB but I don't think he is better than Hawk,Pos,Greenway,Brooks, or Ryans.

If the guy can ever stay healthy hes just like Ray Lewis...thats how good he is. If healthy i think he'd be a top 5 pick

Congratulations, that ignorant homer statement was definaltely "ignore list" worthy. :lol:

You think Jackson is a top 2 LB in the nation? :rofl3: Seriously? :rofl3:

You gotta watch what you say, you can lose all credibility on boards with statements like those.

Anyways good original post. Im not sure of Poz leaves PSU. PSU is losing a handful of seniors, including their entire secondary, this year but offensively, I think they will be better than they are next year. I think Poz plays another year with Dan Connor.

Poz and Connor next year might be the AJ Hawk/ Bobby Carpenter of this year.

Eslinger played pretty good again. It seems he is always ahead of Maroney out of the backfield and is excellent at run blocking. The dude is fast also, a few running plays he was pulling away from Maroney out of the backfield.

not as big/powerful as Mawae, but he was dominant. As stated earlier, he is usually infront of Maroney, and stayed in front of him a good 30 yards on Maroney's 50 yard run.

Hawk and Carpenter both looked average, they did not have a good game against the Minny OL.
