By far my favorite prospect of this years draft. I think he's the best LB in the draft, and I hope the Chiefs draft him to play MLB in our Tampa 2 system. What's everybodies opinion of him, and where do you rank him among Rey, Little Animal, and Spikes?

Personally, I think he's ahead of every one by a mile, and I actually really like Spikes, who is my #2 linebacker. He's almost always evidently the best player on the field and reminds me a lot of AJ Hawk (although Curry stands out a bit more at Wake Forest).

I really like both Orakpo and Jenkins, but Curry might wind up being my highest rated defender in the upcoming draft.

I love his ability (projected) to move around the field and play in different systems; I definetly think he can be a great 4-3 WLB a Tampa 2 WLB or MLB and a 3-4 ILB

Has quickly become my favorite player in the upcoming draft. It's time for people to stop sleeping on him and giving him the credit he's due. Curry is the best Linebacker prospect since A.J. Hawk, though I still don't think he touches Hawk there. At 6'3 247 he's very big, very athletic, and just makes plays on the football field. Coming into the season he was even the school's record holder for Int yards. He returned three picks for Td's last season.

Curry probably won't get out of the Top 7-10. Right now, I have him pegged to the Bengals at 2nd Overall.

The next Linebacker I like is Laurinaitis, who I have right around 15 on my big board. Spikes, I have right around 20 and Maualuga around 22-23 or so. Haha Still putting some finishing touches on my current big board, forgive me, it's a work in progress.

First off i watched him closely against BC and he didnt do much but that was one game. He has ideal size and appears to be a real good athlete so i would think he can turn out to be a pro bowl type player down the road. If he comes to the combine and his numbers measure out like people expect he should be a top 10-15 pick easily.

As of now i think the best linebackers out there are Cushing, Spikes and Herzlich. Does that mean they will have the best careers? I don't have a crystal ball so you tell me. My list of 1st round talent would be. In no particular order:

Herzlich
Curry
Cushing
Laurinaitis
Spikes
Maualuga

I have heard nothing but great things about him. I really would like to see more film on him, hopefully catch their bowl game.

Is Curry that good of a pass rusher? I have watched very little of him but just judging by his stats his sack totals aren't all that impressive. Does Wake Forest just never blitz him or what?

Curry has all the tools, but I think he's being a bit overrated. He's never stood out to me watching Wake games. Laurinitis and Malauluga has been over critiqued a bit too much, they were considered great prospects for a reason.

Because one plays LB at USC and the other has a dad who was a professional wrestler and got some rollover of the AJ Hawk greatness? Just a shot in the dark here.

USC has tons of LB's, so to say the only reason he's getting pub is because he plays for them is just dumb. He can be a wrecker, he's just a bit inconsistent imo and can run himself out of play with his agressiveness. Laurinitis made a name for himself way before the whole his dad is a wrestler thing was highly publicized. He's been making plays since he was a sophmore. There's no doubt both have been overanalyzed, it always happens with big prospects who come back for their senior years.

Curry could be a great player because he has rare tools and can play any LB position, but he was not someone I noticed until some people started talking about him for the draft. But just watching a wake game you won't see him all over the place like some of the elite LB prospects of the past have.

Dansby is a good pass rusher but not amazing, they are both just ultra athletic, play side line to side line, can drop in coverage, play man to man on a TE or RB, stop the run and occasionally blitz

And most of USC's LB's get pub, some more than they should because USC has a history of producing highly drafted LB's. As for JL, people were talking about his dad when he was a freshman, so no, he really didn't make a name before then. Honestly, I was half joking anyway, but both are extremely overrated IMO.

Aaron Curry is light years ahead of every other linebacker in this year's class. He's one of the few players I'd put in the elite category.

Aaron Curry is awesome. Him and Patrick Willis are heads and shoulders better than any LB prospects to come out in the last three of four years.

QFT. Dansby is the truth at LB...

Curry is the best lock to be a good player in this whole draft IMO. He's big, smart, athletic, well rounded, and he plays a position with very few true high pick busts that aren't injury related.

Also, I think Clint Sintim = Karlos Dansby.

Best linebacker in the class.

I don't think he'll end up in the middle in the NFL though...I see him as a SAM 'backer.

If we are talking about linebacker in general, not just those that play inside, I'd rank'em...

1. Aaron Curry, WF
2. Clint Sintim, UVa.
3. Brandon Spikes, UF
4a. Brian Cushing, USC
4b. Rey Maualuga, USC *just see a little more upside in Cushing, but I'd rank the USC kids even

An interesting development in KC is taking place. Derrick Johnson is being moved to MLB for the rest of the year. If he does well, the drafting of Curry could make that LB core pretty sick: Donnie Edwards, Demorrio Williams, Aaron Curry, Derrick Johnson. I likeys!

smaller than advertised. slower than advertised. ive seen him get owned and have trouble with blockers . i dont see an elite lb. i wouldnt pick him in rd 1. decent but i dont see greatness warranted of a rd 1 pick.

The only reasont he lions won't take kindle is they feel bad for AD and don't want to end his career.

Worse than Dorsey? WTF does that mean? Was Dorsey all of a sudden a bad pick or something?

No wonder you have negative rep, your a complete idiot and a tool.

The Chiefs don't have a top 5 defense thus dorsey isn't a god and worth a top 5 pick, isn't it obvious?

What makes him overrated? I've seen him play 3 times this year and not only does he have spectacular instincts but he plays his assignments with great technique. He's one of the most NFL ready players I've seen in a few years.

The two times i have seen him play he's played pretty well. He is a nice combination of size and speed though. I don't know about overrated because i think scouts have him in the mid 1st round area as an OLB. He's probably this years Keith Rivers in the grand scheme of things.

You should have seen the one one where he/she said Drew Brees sucks because the Saints aren't winning the division.

Or the one where he/she asked questions about a player he/she'd never seen and then immediately went into a rant that acted like he/she knew all about that player. We should have just told him/her that the QB in question was 7 feet tall, 400 lbs of muscle, and could throw the ball half a mile so he/she could do the write up saying that Detroit has to take him first overall.

Umm football is a game decided by individuals, coaching and team-mates don't matter, the good ones win and the bad ones don't go undefeated.

yes dorsey was one of the worst picks in the draft. 2-11. if curry is picked top 10 hell be one of this years worst. not as big or nearly as fast as pat willis or kindleor as advertised. misses tackles. gets blocked and doesnt shed well. vs bc. not much. hes one of these guys you have to keep clean or theyre worthless. i could see maybe late rd 1 but i dont see why hes any better than your normal 2nd rd lb like thomas howard or d quell jackson. hes one of these guys who looks great when no one blocks him and he can run unfettered but get a body near him and he becomes pretty much ineffective at least in the bc game
