    Are we planning on turning these guys into LBs or something? Our front three is already stacked.

    Re: Pats Take De Justin Rogers With Pick 180

    From Sporting News (32nd ranked DE overall)...

    War Room analysis
    Full evaluation coming soon.

    Well, that's good. They didn't even bother to put up an evaluation of him prior to the draft.

    He's 6'3", weighs 252, ran a 4.76. Definitely a linebacker conversion project.

    Rogers is farthest left. He looks like a LB.

    He can spend his weekends with Mankins, roping cattle and skinning coyotes. :)

    Re: Pats Take De Justin Rogers With Pick 180

    Scouts put him as an ILB. Probably projects to NFL there even if he played D-line in college. He is 260, but ran terribly at some pro day or something, 4.9+ times. Not good.

    He is probably faster than that, and he might have back-up inside linebacker potencial.


    EDIT: And this kid is supposed to be better than Brandon Siler? A mutli year team leader down here on the National Champion Gators? Siler is a wonderful tackler, plays hard and with passion. I don't get it...

    He's listed on the NFL Draft Tracker as an OLB.

    He's been on my late round LB list for some time, good productive kid.

    Re: Pats Take DE Justin Rogers With Pick 180

    Last year we brought in Mincey, Woods, Mays and Roach. This guy has at least as much chance as any of those did last year. I would note that both UDFA Woods and UDFA Mays are still on the squad. After the middle of fifth, all are longs shots, except perhaps Sters and 3rd string QBs.

    ESPN.com has him listed as ILB. I think this is the type of guy they look for to play LB. All this talk this past week about the Pats looking for speedy guys with great sideline to sideline speed like a Beason was all bunk. The Pats love these converted DEs who are big, strong guys who can take on blocks by o-linemen.

    I'm betting they are going to try to groom this guy to be a potential future replacement for Bruschi.

    Re: Pats Take De Justin Rogers With Pick 180

    A 6th round LB is better than none, I guess.

    Something must be up for Siler, maybe he failed a drug test, injury issue or something else came out. Sounds like the DT from Texas (Rodrique Wright) that fell last year, Miami gabbed him in round 7.

    We started in the 6th last year. We ended up with two on the playoff roster.

    Actually is a sleeper pick of mine at DE/OLB -- just like Banta-Cain was way back when. Better than just a day two prospect.

    whatever kind of linebacker they want to turn him into, it's a project... I'm not sure they even know whether they want him as ILB or OLB.

    On another subject... how stoked do you get now if the Pats pick you? I mean, I am sure on day 1 Brandon M. was stoked... but then to find out they just landed Moss in addition to all the other weapons?

    These guys must be thinking "do not screw up... you can get a ring..."

    Not to mention guys like Seau may REALLY want to return now.

    On Rogers, DaBruinz posted his times on the 6th round thread and they were very good, mostly a little better than Anthony Spencer's. I know nothing about Rogers but he seems to have the speed and quickness to play OLB.

    Re: Pats Take De Justin Rogers With Pick 180

    Yes, our 9th and 10th LBs on the roster were from last years draft or UDFA. What is your point?

    I am in the minority but I don't see Pierre "Lawrence Taylor" Woods or Corey "Larry Izzo" Mays as being capable starters. Our top 4 LBs are over 30, someday (soon) they will have to be replaced or fortified.

    High class problem to have, this team is stacked.

    I've been seeing him listed at ILB, so we'll see if he plays OLB or ILB. After looking at him a little more it seems to be a good pick.

    He'd probably be an OLB in many 3-4 systems, but probably better suited for ILB in ours.

    You have Rogers information incorrect.
    Here is his Pro-Day information from NFLDraftscout.com

    From NFLDraftScout.com:

    Justin Rogers - DE/OLB/LS

    Pro-Day - 6'3 1/8" 252 lbs
    40: 4.74
    20: 2.69
    10: 1.58

    Reps: 19
    Broad: 9'9"
    Vertical: 34 in
    Shuttle: 4.28
    3 Cone: 7.32


    Siler is an arrogant player who doesn't listen to coaches. At least, that is the scuttlebutt. And if its true, you know damn well that BB got the information 1st hand from Meyer
