So who is left? I see patriots.com now has jon beason as a 1st round possibility and I didn't have him as a fit.
So who do you guys see as fits at either LB spot and what round do you see them going?
A look at the LBs on our team helps.
46 Corey Mays LB 6-1 245
58 Pierre Woods LB 6-5 250
59 Rosevelt Colvin LB 6-3 250
50 Mike Vrabel LB 6-4 261
54 Tedy Bruschi LB 6-1 247
95 Tully Banta-Cain LB 6-2 250
52 Eric Alexander LB 6-2 240
The protypical LB in the BB system is an freak of nature, about 6'3, 250 lbs. This is a rare attribute found in most college LBs. Most play in the 4-3 scheme and are 230-ish.
There are few in this draft like
Stewart Bradley, 6'4, 254 lbs
Zak DeOssie, 6'5, 250 lbs
