View Full Version : If fins go olb, which one do you want

04-21-2006, 03:01 PM
a.j. hawk and maybe wimbley or greenway will go before the fins pick. lets just say its hawk. which olb or de/olb tweener do you want the fins to pick to replace seau and form a sick linebacking core. many names have come up such as: wimbley, greenway, sims, ryans, lawson. Those are the main 5 after hawk that we should be able to choose from. In recent weeks wimbley sims and lawson have flown up the charts and many have sims as the 2nd best olb and wimbley/lawson neck and neck for best de/olb for the 3-4. which one would you want the fins to take? i know id want any of those 5 except demeco ryans. Wimbley and lawson fit the 3-4 perfectly and greenway and sims are just ballhawking outside linebackers. whose your pick?

Lawson, also DRAFT FORUM!

I think Greeway and Sims will be available at 16 and Miami will take Greenway and Vikes will take Sims

Wimbley would be the best fit, but I don't know if he'll be there. Besides that, I'd put them in this order.

In the future this belongs in the draft forum. Thanks!

Carpenter should be up there

04-21-2006, 03:19 PM
my order:
3. ryans

i love lawson and sims and would be very happy with wimbley or greenway. i suspect one of either lawson,greenway, or wimbley will be gone at our pick.

04-21-2006, 03:20 PM
carpenter is like the 3rd or 4th olb now on everyones charts. hes not an option if we stay at pick # 16. would take a db overhim.

i found some video on lawson

I personally like Carpenter and Greenway, in that order.

i want sims or greenway the 2 best OLB's in the draft

04-21-2006, 04:00 PM
Sims a talented but very risky pick. Greenway more a solid safe pick. I go for Sims lol

04-21-2006, 04:06 PM
yes sims and greenway are the best olbs but if you rank lawson or wimbley at olb lawson has a slight edge on all them and then sims and greenway and then wimbley.

Carpenter, Wimbley, Lawson, Sims, Greenway.

Its a pretty strong class.

I think it comes down to Carpenter and Greenway, and I suspect that you have the order right. It really depends on what Nick wants more, though. If he wants a coverage linebacker, it's Greenway. If he wants more of a blitzer, it's Carpenter. It seems Nick wants more of a blitzer, but he could decide that Greenway is so much better than Carpenter that it's better to take the increase in talent even though he doesn't do exactly what Nick is looking for.

What we do know that if it is a defensive player at 16,safety or linebacker I think whoever we draft will be able to come in and pay big dividends immediately.

I'd take Carpenter over Greenway. Greenway reminds me somewhat of Roth, kind of a tweener and not big/fast enough to break starting line up, and from Iowa.

Crowder and Carpenter on the outside both sons of former NFL players.

i agree. Carpenter seems a lot smarter for the game ala ZT style where he knows teh game and how plays work and where it will go and Greenway does remind me of roth and will beocme a good OLB not a great one to keep for a decade

I like Carpenter, I'm not a draft expert so I don't know why he is ranked so low on the LB charts, but he would be the ideal pick. Sims is too small, Lawson would be out of position and would need more fine tuning, Greenway . . I just haven't been too high on him for some reason and Wimbley the same as Greenway. Man ideally if we can trade down and still get Carpenter, which is what people are saying, we need to try and do that, and pick up a 2nd rounder in the process **Ko Simpson**, that would be fantastic.
