        Donnie Edwards, Zach Thomas and Dqwell Jackson disagree.

        Hall really reminds me of Zach Thomas.

        I think 2-3 Range would be:

        Beau Bell, UNLV
        Tavares Goodman, Miami
        Ezra Butler, Nevada
        Curtis Gatewood, Vanderbilt
        Jon Goff, Vanderbilt.

        A little bit later...

        Jeremy Leman, Illinois

            Yup, exactly. Those 2 will be the best taken in that range.

                      Definitely.. After seeing Patrick Willis perform in the 3-4 alot more coaches are gonna be paying more attention to the little guy.

                          The little guy like Thomas, Willis and Edwards have shown that you don't need to be a certain size in the NFL to play in the 3-4. You have to be good to overcome your size, but you can still be a star.

                            At 242 lbs Willis is not exactly a little guy, compared to Thomas and Edwards both under 230.

                            A LOT of it depends on what scheme you are talking about.

                            When it comes to the run-d its ALL about your NT. Miami has Keith Traylor and SD has Jamal Williams. Both or 340+ and are going to need a double team.
                            Teams that don't have a bonifide NT such as the Jets, SF, maybe Cardinals, Cleveland all better get a guy that is up to the job or facing up to some offensive guards. Patrick Willis has been amazing for the 49ers because he has been making all kinds of tackles in-spite of the lack of double teaming on our NT but I wouldn't expect that sort of production out of most ilbs, we are talking about the number 11 pick in the draft.

                            When it comes to blitzing, certain scheme like the Chargers employ a lot of movement on the defensive line, especially with the DE on slants, stunts, etc. to get penetration and be disruptive. This motion makes it easier on ilb to get penetration because of the natural gaps and confusion on the o-line.

                            Ultimately, I don't know too much about the prospects you are talking about but as the previous poster said, size is not nearly as important as a players ability to shed blocks (though size helps in this department). Even in the most protected schemes the ilb will have to take on his fair share of blocks.

                              I think Goff's best scheme would be a Cover(Tampa) 2. If u watch the games hes very fluid in coverage and is deceptivly fast, almost a (Very?)poor mans Urlacher. He could fit in any scheme but i think cover 2 would be his best
