Gil Brandt claims he knows Parcels #1 choice at lb for our slot in the upcoming draft. This claim was made on nfl sirius radio earlier this week. Gil said he will not disclose this just yet and the person might surprise you. And of course it all depends if this person is available. Has anyone heard any updated info on this. Based on tuna's drafting history our #1 pick will be a lb. no question about it. but who?

it's the easiest guess and it's quite possible... but man would i be pissed if we drafted him... we need a SOLB, not a WOLB... unless they see something in roth/merling that i don't

Clay Matthews, LB, USC

Tough, versatile, high motor, monster special teamer, excellent pass rusher/blitzer, over achiever, super competitive

Sounds pretty Parcelly to me.

I was thinking about Clay Matthews as well, but I've been praising and talking up Clint Sintim for so long it's almost second nature for me. Honestly, it's either Sintim, Matthews, or Cushing that he's got his eyes on. I know for damn sure that it's not Andy Katzenmoyer Jr. (Laurinaitis).

I completely agree with this. Parcells was rumored to really want Chris Long last year if a contract with Jake Long would not have been worked out in time. It is no secret that Parcells likes big linebackers that shows about as much insight as saying Brett Favre didn't deserve to go to the pro bowl. I think if Michael Johnson, Clint Sintim, or Larry English are there at 25 we take them over an OL, CB, or S.

If it's a surprising name AND an OLB, I'm tempted to go with Michael Johnson or Clay Matthews - if it's strictly an OLB which isn't specified in the OP. Rey Maualuga would be my overall guess.

I saw a post by CK - can't exactly remember when or what thread, but it hinted at the possibility of getting Rey Maualuga and teaming him on the inside with Karlos Dansby. To me, that'd be a dream scenario, even if it appears unlikely on the surface, for now.

I don't think it'll play out this way, but if the first three rounds went:

1. Rey Maualuga
2. Louis Delmas
2. Antoine Caldwell
3. Keenan Lewis

I'd be pretty excited. Four potential starters right off the bat, and we've hit two holes in the secondary, one in the LB corp, and give ourselves even more flexibility along the O-line.

no i didn't. he just looks more like a heavy hitter and in the box safety to me. if he's good in coverage also that puts him over rashod johnson for me as a free safety.

I disagree. Chung played sort of a rover position that had him in or near the box a lot, but he has the range, instincts and ball skills to play free safety. He is very versatile, not a pure strong safety. While at Oregon, he even lined up at corner. Chung is also a very reliable tackler and excellent special teamer. He'd play ten years in the NFL on his special teams ability alone. Chung is somewhat overlooked around here when it comes to the top safeties. Most mention Delmas and Johnson, but I'd be equally pleased with Chung if we take him.

Agreed, he could play for us in our system and I would be ok with it if we took him with our late 2nd rounder or possibly even our first 2nd from Washington. This guy has no business though in the 1st and there will be much better players available at #25 for us to reach on a guy that was an underachiever his entire college career, and not nearly as gifted as some of the guys who will be available to us.

Considering there were reports that Parcells himself had a lengthy conversation with Clay Matthews at the senior bowl.... and also considering Parcells habit of keeping things a closely guarded secret... IMO the Matthews conversation was a diversionary tactic to throw off other teams... there were positive reports on Larry English on how he played LB during the game... and made a strong impression during the practices as well.... i'm guessing that a pass rushing LB was impressive enough to catch his eye and the regime is looking to him as the pick... I had the pleasure to see Larry English play 3times this season and came away impressed to hope he would be a Miami Dolphin.... and judging by the Cameron Wake signing... it is looking like this team is gearing up to load up on the pass rush... I believe Larry English is the pick... he is a classic Parcells conversion player... he will be groomed to become a full time player... in the mean time he'll be let lose on the QB's.... again this is only my opinion... considering the Jake and Chris Long show last year... he'll keep the NFL guessing... until pick #25 is on the board....

Nah, I believe the Pat White thing. Why do you think Parcells wants to trade Beck all of a sudden? After mentioning how he likes Pat White and has visions of him in the Wildcat as a QB/WR/RB and playing KR/PR.

Yeah, I don't see why the Pat White thing would be a decoy...it isn't like he's picking Pat White in the first day of the draft. He said he would be willing to use a 3rd or 4th round pick on him. Not much of a decoy to me.

But on this case, who is Gil Brandt? Why would he know who Parcells is going to pick? They've made their decision already?

Brandt has been a top personnel guy in the league for years and years (most notably under Tom Landry in Dallas). He probably knows Parcells and his way of thinking very well. That being said, it is probably just his guess on it regardless.

02-06-2009, 12:59 AM
My best bet is Clint Sintim...and that's if Parcells believes Wake will play the SOLB. If not, then Wake will be groomed behind Porter and a SOLB must be drafted early on.

Everyne knows that BP sends out mixed signals especially to inflate value to players he doesn't want to draft...

Colleagues hang each other out to dry..., friends do not "back stab"..., mine don't or they are no longer my friends...., are we to believe that Gil is a "back stabber" hard to believe...

Colleagues yes... A "friend" would never sell his friend out..., you ca guarantee that BP & Ireland And Sparano are pretty mum...

Heck last year we had guys (won't mention who..., but they still have a lot of credibililty and in some strange way even more credibilty) in a lot of people's eyes saying that they had "insider knowledge" that the FO was not drafting a QB first day or second day for that matter..., the team was so impressed with what they had...

(We know this was all "smoke and mirrors" erroneous then as we know now..., BP knows how to keep the cards concealed even to his own staff who may or may not have been offering info to certain posters)

The point is that if you have someone's secret and you share it to inflate your value to others..., you are scum..., if you share a secret to save a life well that's another matter...

Gil Brandt is speculating..., he is paid to speculate..., and it's fun when you are right..., and BP won't care...

If i recall the conversation from Gil on air, he stated that Bill told him his top rated lb (and there was no speculation involved). This choice would surprise some people and I'm not sure if Gil was told to keep his mouth shut or what but he would not devulge the info when pressed on air. At this point i'm not sure what the real story is but i can't wait for the draft.

Thank you for that. ;)

And yes, I would consider Brian Cushing or Heyward-Bey in the 1st! WHY you ask!? BECAUSE THEY ARE FIRST ROUND PICKS!

Robert Ayers is a 3rd round talent, that will probably be overdrafted towards the middle of the second. He has absolutely NO business in the 1st. He was an underachiever his whole career at Tennessee after coming in as a 4 star prospect out of high school.

Cushing and Heyward-Bey have always been great talents and are widely considered 1st rounds picks because they have always been very good players. The only questions surrounding Cushing are injuries, not ability. Not to mention, Cushing would be ready to play much before Ayers because he played the some 3-4 outside pass rushing position at SC that he would play for us. While Roberts Ayers would be moving from college end to pro outside backer, which is one of the most difficult to make.

Also, Ayers offers little upside, while everyone on my list offers tremenous upside and starting ability from Day 1.

If that's the case, it doesn't necessarily give anything away. We may not even go LB for all we know. It could even be Aaron Curry, who nobody believes will fall to us but doesn't get the hype of Rey Rey or Cushing.

My evidence that we will draft a Linebacker #1

Exhibit A the Pittsburgh Steelers. Without there pass rush they have a very mediocre secondary. The Steelers thrive year in and year out with good run defense and a strong pass rush. This is how Bill thinks also!

Exhibit B Every time Bill has started coaching new somewhere his first year there he drafted a lb #1. Here was different (long). I can almost bet the house that unless a real stud falls to us he will once again draft lb with our #1 pick. This new pass rush from cam wake and our new #1 lb will instantly make our secondary look better. I know that, Bill knows that and you know that. So who is our new lb going to be?

I agree with you. History shows that we will most likely take an LB. I was just saying that telling who the Tuna ranks as the best LB doesn't necessarily give away our draft strategy. That being said, if we do trade for Bobby Carpenter, I'm not so sure he will view LB as the same priority, kind of like how TE wasn't an issue after we got Fasano.

I am not sure he would be overrated picked at 25..but I was just putting another face out there at 25. Bottom line: Parsells doesnt know who he wants yet, he just knows what he likes. Long time to go yet.

The OLB crop is much stronger than ILB IMO. Henceforth, Laurenitis. Bart Scott would nullify that though.

gill brandt said last year when arizona selected tim hightower that there was going to be a vp of player operations in miami that will be disapointed i thin gill is close with parcells

i like Gil Brandt. He's a nice old guy, i can't see him spouting something out just to hype himself up. he knows parcels man and wont give it up and it's driving me crazy.

yeah I got XM satellite radio and I listen to him on there alot and I like him alot. I think this is smokescreen of a direct fashion. In other words, It is a LB, but our sniff trail has taken us all in a different direction...smart!

there is no way that cushings makes it past NE, they will take him, unless, both Rey and Cushings are there when they pick, which is a pipe dream.

I would. He is totally overrated, a future bust in the making.

i also like english, delams
or delmas, clay mathews (or vise-versa depending on the combine)
in the end though i can live with whatever the FO does, because i know they wont do something stupid like pick a WR

I believe it was Pat Kirwan this week on Sirius said that BP likes Cushing and Maualuga but that there was another LB he likes better than those two. He said he didn't know who it was.

Excellent BP is up to his old tricks... now he has people paying attention to him..., and the smokescreens have already taken effect..

I heard what Brandt was talking about... he said that he thinks that Parcells already has his player that he wants. It is a LB, but not any of the guys from USC.

So...
- Clint Sintim, UVA
- James Laurinaitis, OSU
- Larry English, ??
