Not to be a total Colorado Buffs homer, but I think if this guy is around he would make a hell of a LB for us. He is only 5' 11"...Zach Thomas size but weighs around 245 and he just makes some of the hardest hits I've ever seen.

AT COLORADO: This Season (Sr.)—CU’s starting inside linebacker at the “mike” position and he’s racked up a lot of notoriety in the annual summer publications. He was selected as a preseason third-team All-American by both Football.com and Nationalchamps.net (he’s also on the official preseason watch list by the Football Writer’s Association of America), he was a near unanimous first-team All-Big 12 selection by the preseason publications including Athlon, CBS SportsLine.com, collegefootballnews.com, Huskers Illustrated, Lindy’s Big 12 Football, The Sporting News and USA Today Sports Weekly. Lindy’s rated him the No. 5 inside linebacker in the NCAA, and The Sporting News selected him as the hardest-hitting linebacker in the Big 12 as the No. 15 inside linebacker in the nation. He is one of 56 players on the official preseason watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Award, presented to the nation’s top defensive player. He enters his senior year tied for 26th in total tackles (231) at Colorado, with his 142 solo stops tied for 24th all-time.

This is probably going to get moved to the Draft Forum, but Crowder is the heir apparent to Thomas. I hate to be a homer, too, but have you heard of Patrick Willis from Ole Miss? He's the best LB in the country (inside or outside). He's somewhat flown under the radar because of his teams lack of national exposure, but he's not gone unnoticed. He is a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski and Dick Butkus awards. Plays MLB in a 4-3, but has the intangibles to play at any LB position in any system. Nice size, but could gain a few more pounds (6'2", 235lbs). Simply the best at his position!

I think you are talking about Abraham Wright?....he is very good...I would not put him in the same category as Gaines Adams or Woodley, but I think he has a shot of being a first day pick like Thaddaeus Washington...I would say Round 4 for both of these guys with lots of upside potential. I think Wright was a finalist for the best defensive end award (I think it is the Hendrix award). I checked Wright's 40 time and it is 4.79....only 6'3" so he may be not tall enough, just like Washington but both are great players.

Washington is a rock. One of the hardest hitters I've seen in a while. He's made some plays against UT and OU in the past few years. He reminds me a little of Takeo Spikes.
