    so, months ago i wanted this guy badly in the first round
    but i see him goin second or third round now
    i still think hed be a great fit
    but theres no way he lasts to us in the third
    maybe a trade back into the second for him?
    i would not at all be surprised if we took him in the first
    as mankins held similar projections

    as michigan dave says: guns dont kill people, lamar woodley kills people

    I like woodley allot. I would not mind it at all if we landed him. He is a GREAT pass rusher.

    i def would not mind harris
    harris could be a very good ilb
    and while many think woodley might be moved inside
    i think that would not be utilizing his pass rushing skills on the outside

    he's pretty much the same size and has the same speed as Mcginest when he first came into the nfl right?

    He's not as tall as Willie. Built more stockier. Very similar style of play.

    You might want to CAPITALIZE THE P in Pees.

    I thought Woodley was having prostrate problems

    Woodley gets after the QB. That's always a good attribute to have. Even though he would be a conversion project, he still fits the Patriots mold. Wish he were a couple inches taller but otherwise a pretty good prospect.

    Nice to see more people on the Woodley train lately:)

    I think he's a beast, and would kill in NE's defense.

    Anyways, I like the guy, and have for some time now. One thing I'm hoping is that if NE doesn't take him a team like Indy doesn't grab him to play DE. Freeney, and Woodley rushing off the edge isn't something I want to see. Also, the fact that he's played ILB(HS), DE for two years in college, and OLB for two years in college makes him somewhat versatile.

    I just found out a few additional nuggets:
    According to an article in the Sunday Herald, he's got a 4.0GPA! Woodley has a lot of passion for the game, and is the unquestioned leader of their defense. During the offseason (after their dissapointing '05 season) Woodley organized a defensive team meeting focused on getting prepared for the '06 season.

    I think it says a lot that Pees is looking at him first hand.

    The best way I know to describe Woodley is relentless.

    Woodley might not be the prospect that Timmons, Beason, Spencer or even Pozlunzy is, but I love what I head about his leadership, smarts, motor and love for the game.

    If you have those things, you can make up for a lack of height or a slow 40.

    He's almost the same exact size as Thomas, so I wouldn't worry about his lack of hight. Woodley is 6'1.4" and weighs 266LBS. Thomas is 6'2" and weighs 270lbs.

    "I love this part of the article: "There's tradition, they got leaders there and they're all willing to work," said Woodley, a Michigan teammate of Patriots linebacker Pierre Woods. "It's like Michigan, that name's been built and you want to keep it going."

    Also, he ran a 4.72 - 40 at his Pro Day but thats coming off a muscle strain, and I know he's run in the 4.6 range.

    I agree. I actually took him @ 1.28 in a very early (January) community mock that I participated in (on another site). Below is the write up.

    Woodley has been projected as a late second to early third rounder by most publications that I've read so far. But, is the first part of April and that is when some players begin to rise and some begin to fall. If the Patriots look at him at as first rounder, that is good enough for me.

    Unfortunately it looks like Willis is starting to rise into the top ten, which puts him out of range for the Patriots.

    I think he is GROSSLY underrated, and the combine/pro-day's hurt his "Public" stock a little.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he wowed teams in the interview process though. Woodley could be one of those players that NE picks, and it leaves people scratching their heads (because of the late second round projections).

    he's not always a late second/early third projection.
    Scouts Inc:"Woodley improved his draft stock with a productive senior season and should be off the board in the top-40 overall picks of the 2007 draft."
    DraftStock "projected round: 2" "Should be drafted by the middle to late stages of the 2nd round."

    Also, I hope people remember Woodley had a hamstring strain/pull during the Senior Bowl and that is the reason he could complete the senior bowl week, and it's probably still effected his combine and Pro Day workouts. I know he didn't run the 40 at the combine because he was still coming off the hammy. At his Pro Day, which was not all that much later he ran a 4.72. I know he's run a 4.67, and thats at 266-274lbs. That's faster for a man his size. Some of the 238-245lbs LB's ran simular times.

    All LBs are more effective if they can free lance while the other LBs, DTs and DEs are being given the contain and lane-control assignments.
