Isn't it a little early for Lawson? Maybe if we trade down, but not at #16.

Correct! He's sliding down the boards.

Correct! He's sliding down the boards.

He's sliding because he's projected as an OLB in the NFL, but he hasn't shown an ability to drop into coverage. That makes him one dimensional.

I think I'd rather Greenway.

I think I'd rather Greenway.

Greenway is to weak to play in the 3-4. I like Manny but 16 is too high for him.

He's not sliding anywhere. For the 3-4 teams he's solid.

Manny's size and speed ranks him higher than Greenway, Chad has alligator arms and lacks the strength to shed Lineman.IMO

He played 2 years as an OLB at NC State, he played OLB at the Senior Bowl practices and was very impressive. He can cover backs and tight ends, he is very instinctive and he gets great depth on his drops.

Boomer can he play strong side Linebacker?

No way 16 is too high for Manny. If we are fortunate enough to have him on the board when our pick comes up, if Saban wants him he better grab him, b/c he won't last too long after that if we pass on him.

Correct! He's sliding down the boards.
Just what boards is he sliding down? Truth be known, none of the internet draft sites know just where any of the 32 teams have him ranked. And why would he be sliding now? He hasn't done anything to cause a slide since he worked out, and all that did was strengthen his draft value.

I know this thread is about Manny but im on the Ernie Sims band wagon. He's sick and if we dont get Lavar and if the Eagles dont get him then i think he will def be available wat do u guys think

I think he will be a great player, but doesn't fit Sabans schemes.

are we talking sims or lawson... sims I can agree with b/c of his lack of size but Lawson would fit like a glove in Miami..

Yep. That's where he'd be drafted to play.
