He's another Jonathan Vilma. He is exactly like him

Weatherspoon just isn't a 3-4 ILB, he can't take on interior linemen. Neither could Vilma and that's why Vilma wasn't great with the Jets.

When Vilma went to New Orleans in a 4-3 defense those blockers were off him and he was allowed to use his talent which was to flow sideline to sideline.

Sorry, but Weatherspoon is way too small to play 3-4 ILB. He looks tiny out there. He is only a LB in a 4-3

If you watched Weatherspoon this year you would have seen how he gets swallowed up by interior linemen. He gets crushed on blocks because of his size. And that's a big no-no for a 3-4 ILB.

I love him, but he will not be a Miami Dolphin for that reason.

Weatherspoon was impressive. However, the more I watched I have to agree w/ Greyboy.

I can see him as a 4-3 WLB for the Eagles or Seahawks.

He looked great today but 12 might be to high for him right now

Greyboy if spoon was here he would be a OLB not a ILB and to be honest he isn't much smaller then Ray Lewis and Channing crowder I am by no means comparing him to Lewis but they are the same height and Lewis is only 9 pounds heavier then weatherspoon and 10 pounds heavier then vilma so Imo if he were to put on a couple pounds of musle he could be a very good ILB

He's a football player-Weatherspoon. I think Brandon Graham fits our mold better but the only opinion i really would care to invest in is Mr. Nolan's.

I just checked the weigh ins for senior bowl week and he is 241 pounds currently. So it looks like he gained a bit of weight because I initially saw the 235 listing.. And he is under 6'1 at 6'0 and 7/8

Maybe it can work. But gosh he looks so tiny on the field. I agree with the other guy who said he looks like a defensive back out there.

I love him as a football player though. I just didn't like how he gets blocked out of plays so easily when offenses decide to send a guard his way. And 3-4 ILB's see interior linemen coming at them quite often.

If we put him out there with Crowder and Porter, we could have the smack-talkingest LB corps in NFL history.

Haven't had the chance to watch the Senior Bowl yet, but it sounds like some players have moved up in the draft board. Maybe there's a decent chance Spikes falls into Miami's lap in the 2nd. I'm convinced he's a better fit for what we do than McClain.

I should say - what we will do with Nolan.

I think Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Antwan Barnes and Bart Scott take that award far and away.

what the heck...if spoon was here he'd be an outside lb in a 3-4??? are you guys really that far off with your player evaluations???

Honestly watching Weatherspoon in the Senior bowl he reminded me the most of Channing Crowder. I think we can do better at 12.

His coverage of McKluster in the endzone was extemely impressive, and as far as his future in the NFL he commented on that when he was interviewed. He said that he had already been told he would fit best as a weakside LB in a 4-3 or as the Mike in a 3-4.

He didn't directly say what he preferred but you could tell he would prefer to play the Mike in a 3-4.

Are we switching to a 4-3 that I don't about? Oh, we're not. No thanks on Witherspoon. Not the best at shedding blocks, too small to be a 3-4 LB.

I would love to see spoon in a fins jersey. My only question is which position will he play. He can definitely cover and rush the passer. I've heard he's projected more as a 3-4 ILB than an OLB but I think he could do both. I'm think we're going to have to move to get him though, either way back in the first or maybe we could get lucky and snag him in the 2nd. I'm officially on the spoon bandwagon.

too many teams could use him..i dont think he falls to us in rd 2. id like to see it, but i dont feel it is realistic.

:facepalm:
He is 9 pounds Lighter then Ray Lewis im not saying he is the same Talent as Lewis because that would be fulish im just saying if he can put on nine pounds of mustle and a little fat he could be very good at either ILB or OLB. and what does Ray Lewis play again and in what system oh yea thats right he plays ILB in the 3-4

i think he can do both also i think he will end up being a 3-4 ILB which we need and even if he ends up being a 3-4 OLB we need that also

how is he to small he is the same height as Ray Lewis and is 9 pounds lighter then lewis if he can put on 5 to 10 pounds he would be a prefect fit as a 34 LB

I read in a report that he was getting through all the trash great in practice. This draft is very hard for me I want both him and B graham

This guy is all over the place. After watching some film of Spoon, McClain, and Spikes he looked far and away the best in coverage. In my opinion this is what we where missing from the linebacker spot last year. We draft him, and the days of us being one of the worst in the league against tight ends are over.

I still say hes a OLB. I still also say he's a late first rounder early early early second.

I don't think he drops to us in the 2nd. but I wouldn't mind cuz than we may end up with spikes anyway.

could spoon pull off a ILB in a 3-4. probably. but I don't think it would be his strength.

i'm sticking with mcclain if it's a LB we are targeting in the first round.

Complaints from last year linebacker core were: slow couldn't cover, could't tackle, and we didn't have leardership. Weatherspoon qualities can cover(showed how well he can at the SB) showed he was a leader(did that all year at Mizz), has 4.5 speed if I had to guess and tackles very well all over the field. So why would anyone not want this kid over Mclain!
