    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.

    What really irks me, is that a Pats fan showed more dignity and maturity than some of you.
