    I take this with a grain of salt. All he has to do is remember what happened to Linehart who lost millions by staying. If he hasn't declared by 1/15/08, then I will believe him.

    Ahhhh crap! Not that I wanted him in NE or anything but now the only 1st round ILBs are Lauranaitis and Connor. Overrated Big Ten MLBs. They get over hyped every year.

    Worse, IMO, is Jonathan Goff staying in school. Looks like the folks who insist "BB will never draft an ILB!" will end up looking smart this year.

    EDIT: Hold on, I could have sworn that I read that Goff is returning for a red-shirt senior season. Now I can't find that, am I imagining things?

    Jon's already a senior. He came to Vandy in 2003, got a redshirt, and played 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007. He's played in and started a ton of games for an ILB prospect in the SEC.

    He'll be one of the top 2 or 3 ILB's taken in the draft, and I really like him.

    Goff is listed at 6-4 235 lbs. A bit light in the pants for a LB in the Pats system, no?

    BTW, Maualuga has been arrested once. Does this raise a red flag?

    Sure enough, I was reading a couple of articles on Goff the other day and didn't realize that one of them was from January 2007. :rolleyes: Time for more coffee.

    I like Goff a lot too. In another post I speculated on trading down half a dozen picks in the 1st in exchange for a flip of 2nd rounders, yielding something like picks #14 and 45. That should be nice positioning for a CB and ILB in this draft.

    It all depends on who has them ranked where.

    For instance, NFLDraftCountdown has Connor, Phillip Wheeler and Beau Bell as OLBs, where as NFLDraftScout.com has them listed at ILB.

    Leinart would've been the surefire #1 pick. I think Maualaga would go into the draft if he and his agent thought he was going into the top 10, but he had an injury plagued year, he's still very raw and with his potential he could go very high next year.

    Goff is listed at 6-4 235 lbs. A bit light in the pants for a LB in the Pats system, no?
    I think given his height the hope would be that he would bulk up some.

    BTW, Maualuga has been arrested once. Does this raise a red flag?
    It's hard to tell anything from a 1 sentence explanation. It's something that Pioli and BB would have to find out on their own.

    If you want to put things in bold, you need to use brackets not the less than/greater than symbols.

    Maualaga can't have an agent yet. If he did, he'd no longer be eligible to play in college. I don't think Maualaga is good enough to ever be a top 10 pick. The injury issues loom large for him.

    The official weigh in will be at the combine. I've seen numbers that have him as high at 244. But, as you said, given his height, he should be able to put on some weight. But his frame (shoulders/hips) also have something to do with it. If the over-all frame can't handle it, then he'll be in trouble.

    There are a few things regarding Maualuga's arrest. 1) It happened when he was 18. A freshman. 2) I don't believe he was ever indicted. 3) I don't know if the charges are still pending or not. I can't find anything online about it.

    Jon's listed at 235lbs, but he's still growing into his frame, and he's actually played at 244lbs before. If you don't know, he's been able to go up and down in weight when he's needed.

    I've did the Vandy Florida game this year and I think he is one of those guys that loses weight as the season wears on.
    He may weigh in under 240 for the Senior bowl, but should be over 240 by the start of TC.

    In the Patriots scheme he might only be a 2 down LBer (Run stuffer). Florida had a field day running guys by him.

    Although I doubt he lasts, I would be thrilled to get him with Oakland's pick in the third round.

    Maualuga was arrested because of an altercation at a party which occurred shortly after his father died. He's had no other problems.
