prisco is a douche nozzle but this is a pretty good 2012 article
I guess this means we'll revert to trading up -- tough to find a quality OLB with the 32nd pick.
Brandon Jenkins, DE/OLB, Florida State (Jr.): He had 14 sacks as a sophomore and should be even better in 2011. He is an end at FSU, but can move to an outside 3-4 rush linebacker.
Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska: He has been a big-time contributor the past two years for the Huskers. He can play 4-3 tackle or end in a 3-4.
And the new Pitt coach has created a specific hybrid DE/OLB position for him, so he will be coming into the NFL comfortable playing at 3-4 OLB, so teams don't have to worry if he can transition like a lot of college DE's.

Even cuter was this message he sent me lol.This raider team going to be dangerous.
Who has a more explosive Rb committee (mcfadden , Bush and taiwan jones ) Who has one of the best Fbs - Marcel reece. How about TE zach miller
A emerging young Wr corp that just needs the oline to pass protect better . Chaz schilens 2, Louis Murphy, 3 Jacoby Ford, 4. Denarious Moore and5DHB
A young oline that has a chance to be special . will eventually look something like this . LT jared veldheer LG Joseph Barksdale C stefan wisniewski Rg Bruce campbell and a FA Rt- Jared gaither. Rg
A solid Qb in Jason campbell .
One of the deepest and best dline in the game.Not to mention alot of guys that can get to the Qb.
a Young good looking Lbcorp WLB Travis Goethel MLB rolando MCClain and Sslb K wimbley
If Raiders lose asomugha his lost will hurt but they do have a very deep secondary and alot of talent for Rod woodson to work with.
Two of the best kickers in the game.
Yes when its all said amnd done thisraiders team making a deep run in the playoffs. You will see in week three what Im so excited about.
Next year I want to come away with a big time LBer OR if they wanted to crazy folks then one of Jeffery/Blackmon/Floyd. Or just draft Toon's kid out of Wisconsin. Crick would be fine too.
Brandon Jenkins is very interesting. He moves. Definitely needs to add size, but definitely FSU's DE to watch this year.

But my guess is someone as smart as Luck won't need 5 years to graduate. He'll move forward with the class of freshmen he entered school with and will worry about a potential 'Masters degree' once he's done with football, if he wants that. Even a 'serious injury' might not stop him -- check Sam Bradford?
Hammer, don't take my soccer reference lightly. Andrew played soccer growing up in Europe (when Oliver ran NFLE) and it's said to be one of the reasons he possesses such "amazing footwork" in the pocket for a college quarterback. I agree, this kid might be the best since Elway -- I can't remember anyone as good. Heck, Peyton Manning, as great as he was, wasn't rated that much higher than Leaf coming out. I think Luck might've gone #1 overall in 2010 & would've absolutey gone #1 in 2011...that's saying a lot.
I'd be shocked if Carolina won 6 or 7 games, but it's always possible, as the league is so unpredicatable. I think, as always, the team finishing in last could be a team none of us expect to have a terrible season, but does -- Seattle, Jacksonville, San Fran, Tampa or Arizona?
