    UDFA LB Freddie Roach chooses NE over Miami

    Probably not a big deal, but Saban seems like he was pretty interested.

    http://www.boston.com/sports/footbal...e_for_himself/

    Agent Mark Slough said the Patriots edged out the Dolphins, among other squads, to sign Roach in what turned out to be a ''competitive bidding." Dolphins coach Nick Saban, who unsuccessfully recruited Roach while coaching at Louisiana State, made multiple calls, according to Slough.



    BIO: Four-year starter and All-Conference selection every year but his sophomore campaign. Senior totals included 66 tackles after 57/9/2 as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Run-stuffing linebacker best as a two-down defender. Forceful up the field, fires through gaps and displays a straight-line burst of speed. Strong, defeats blocks and brings ball-handlers down on initial contact.

    NEGATIVES: Lacks the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack or change direction. Possesses marginal ball skills and does not display an explosive break to the pass.

    ANALYSIS: A hard-hitting linebacker who stacks well against the run, Roach could back up at middle linebacker or possibly develop into a starter on the inside for a 34 alignment.

    PROJECTION: Late Fourth Round

    pre combine i was high on this guy... then he ran like a 4.9 in the 40... which is why i guess he went undrafted, i would have liked to bring him in though

    Freddie Roach = Sam Mcgrew. Same type of player, interestingly it appears Saban wants real thumper to patrol the middle.

    All the off topic ridiculous posts were moved to the Depths.
    What really irks me, is that a Pats fan showed more dignity and maturity than some of you.
