View Full Version : Any good OLBs

left on the board. I would like to see us take one tomorrow in the 4th round.

Will Derting

some people are mentioning Ahmad Brooks.....from Virginia Tech???? hmm id love to bring him in, he is amazing.

04-29-2006, 09:23 PM
Brooks isn't even in the draft. He's suspended for the year and may enter the supplemental

Will Derting

I live 2 hours from Pullman and have seen Will Derting play several times. He is nothing really special. If we were to take him, it would be a 7th rounder as a project.

i wouldnt mind Ahmad Brooks in the supplemental draft. Just....what pick do we give up?

04-29-2006, 09:34 PM
Parys Haralson, a DE/OLB good pass rusher from Tennessee. I hope he lasts until our pick.

04-29-2006, 10:14 PM
Mark Anderson a DE from Alabama projects as an olb in a 3-4 system. Im a Bama fan and this guy is a player. He wont be a superstar but can be a quality starter in the NFL

spencer havner from ucla, very good in coverage, but not a great pass rusher

04-29-2006, 10:18 PM
Nick Reid from Kansas, Big 12 defensive player of the year. I think he could easily turn into a tackling machine like Zach.

AJ Nicholson has some character issues but he could develop into something good..

Jimmy James

Keep an eye on Cameron Vaughn. He has the size to play in this D and would be a steal in the 7th.

It sounds like he might have the brook trout look, though.

04-29-2006, 10:28 PM
Anderson, Haralson or Stanley McClover

if any of these tweeners fall it would be cool to get the one best suited to play rush OLB

04-29-2006, 10:30 PM
Leon Williams from Miami
Spencer Havner from UCLA
Mark Anderson from Alabama

Those would be my LB's of choice for our system.

I would really like Williams late 4th-5th round, he's 6-3 and runs consistently under 4.5.

I don't see how Miami could go wrong with Havner in the 4th, though there may be even better talent available to the team in that position.

Here's some links to some OLB player bios...









Any keepers here in the group? Is OLB so pressing a need that we should spend the 4th rounder on it?

04-29-2006, 11:06 PM
I don't see why OLB is any more of a need than DT or even interior OL. We were 7th defensively in yards per carry and 2nd in sacks last season. Its not like our run defense or pass rush is in overwhelming need of an upgrade. If Max Jean-Gilles or Gabe Watson are still there when we pick we might take them as they may very well be considered BPA.

04-29-2006, 11:16 PM
if Watson falls to us, that would be awesome

I have a bad feeling that he won't

04-29-2006, 11:25 PM
Brandon Johnson is intriguing because of his size and speed.

04-29-2006, 11:41 PM
I also like what I read about William Kershaw

Havner from ucla is good steal in the 4th rd. ANother sleeper in the late rounds would be Pierre Woods from michigan. Also Nicholson from fsu is still there as is lsu lb Cameron Vaughn who at 6'3 235 has a nice frame for a olb spot on this team. Im sure Saban is keeping an eye on him just like he did when he drafted Daniels last season.

Tulloch - Jr who declared early - was a very productive linebacker from NC State's outstanding defense. He runs well sideline to sideline, but sometimes gets handled wihen the linemen get their hands on him.

Out of southern florida, originally - worth a flyer in the 7th round for sure.

04-30-2006, 12:51 AM
in the 7th i love Saban to take a look at Robinson from Penn st. He be good as maybe trying trick plays or sitting in the shotgun and running with the ball. Worth a look

AJ Nicholson has some character issues but he could develop into something good..

I would like to grab him in the 4th. Fingers crossed.
