    ...From someone i trust working inside the stadium. Shawn Crable has been very impressive.

    Once again. Dont build this into anything more than it is but i have heard some rather good remarks from our 2nd year OLB.

    Did he tell you whether or not Crable's been able to put any size into those drumsticks of his?

    FWIW Crable's been told to throw on some sweatpants.

    Take that FWIW.

    I found it very odd hearing that all other OTA participants were wearing shorts with the exception of Shawn

    That's good. Shawn Crable has become the new Chad Jackson of the board. I'm really rooting for this guy to overtake Pierre Woods.

    The best thing that could happen for the patriots and us fans is for Crable to show up looking like a force at rushing the passer. That would be fantastic!

    Just what we need. :cool:

    Im just hoping that the player starting opposite of Thomas will get a good pass rush whoever it may be. Again like the draft BB and Company is keeping EVERYONE guessing!!

    If Crable can provide consistent pressure on passing downs the rest will take care of itself. His buddy Woods can play on the early downs if Crable can't; we need pass rush rather badly, I think the rest will take care of itself.

    Thanks for sharing. I don't think the Pats will have a problem finding a capable pass-rusher from the existing LB'ers on the roster. My biggest concern is health. It's been their biggest downfall and deterrent the past few years. The last place they can afford injuries is at the LB position, if healthy I have high hopes for Woods, Crable, Redd, Banta-Cain or anyone else for that matter that shows BB something between now and preseason. Hopefully, the injury bug has moved on from Foxboro and on to other teams this year.;)

    I for one got so wrapped in the possibility of getting either Peppers or Taylor that you don't realize that one of these guys could be the answer. I guess that's why they pay BB the big bucks and don't base it on fan or media opinion.

    Re: Dont get your hopes up but....

    Do you think that maybe, just maybe, BB doesn't yet know who will be the starter at OLB opposite AD this year? He seems to have a fair amount of confidence in the young guys - Woods, Crable, and Redd - but I'm assuming that whoever plays the best in training camp will win the job.

    It's even remotely possible that Woods and Crable could both play well and end up at OLB, with Thomas moving inside. I don't think that's very likely, but stranger things have happened.

    Here's hoping that Crable ends up being the best 3-4 OLB named Shawn(e) in the NFL this year.

    Can you provide us an update with his weight?
    I know he's listed at 245 but I think if he can get around 250... or 255, additional upper and lower body strength he will be able to better muscle OTs.

    I don't doubt his speed off the edge, I just he needs more functional playing strength.

    Ok, really dumb question. When you say "he's been told to throw on sweatpants," what does this mean? Is it that over the past year he's bulked up the stick legs and needs to cut some weight there, or that they want him to put the sweatpants on because they don't want people seeing how stick-like his legs are? I know...dumb question, but...

    I wondered also but didn't want to be "that guy" who asked :D I'm assuming it means his legs are bigger and stronger but, as secretive as the NFL is, the Patriots want to keep the new and improved Crable under cover (or under sweats in this case) as long as possible.

    That's what I took from it, but I'm not sure how much advantage there is to be gained from releasing giant calf muscles as a shock tactic. There must surely be something else to it.

    Either way, my hopes are way up.
