@seniorbowl: 3-4 teams wasting their time working C Washington as an OLB, he is a
4-3 DE all the way. His @seniorbowl work was excellent and ran 4.55.
@seniorbowl: C Washington came to @seniorbowl as a 5th/6th rounder. He is now a 2nd/3rd candidate, and a total "steal" in 4th. Plays hard and can fly.
@MoveTheSticks: Watching one more tape on LSU's defense. Mingo is a tough one…His closing burst is impressive but I don't see same juice in his get off.
@MoveTheSticks: RT @nfldraftscout: I would take Dion Jordan over Mingo.> Me too
I do not want Jordan at all. a whopping 5 sacks last year and 10.5 tfl. I keep hearing "He is smooth and flexable and looked pretty good in drills, he will be a good cover lb. He might be able to develop into a pass rusher." F that. I don't want another Pace or thomas. I want a pass rusher. Jarvis jones the last two years has had 14.5 and 13.5 sacks and 19.5 and 24.5 tfl in the sec.
I always enjoy your posts; just putting something out there. I like the game tape of Ansah. Not the top level of competition; however, he DOES look like the Missing Piece to Our Next Sack Exchange. I get giddy thinking about Ansah; but I can't tell.
Okay I just read the Ziggy thread

I heard one of the guys on Sirius NFL Radio compare Jordan to Jason Taylor. Haven't seen enough of him to know if that's a valid comparison. What do you guys think?
The guy that really has my attention is Jamie Collins from Southern Miss. All of the measureables and looked good in LB drills at the combine. Heard he might be shooting up the boards too. Any thoughts on him in the 2nd if we go OL at 9 and don't get 13 for Revis?
@TonyPauline: Am told there's a definite possibility Damontre Moore/OLB/Texas A&M runs the forty again prior to the draft...
What worries me about jordan, is that whoever we draft to play this OLB spot, needs to be a speed/rush end on 3rd down and he seems uncomfortable in a 3 point stance. Maybe rex will use him as a blitzing LB like adalius thomas?
