  • Dan Conner vs. James Laurinitis

    Is Dan Conner more of an inside linebacker or would he be more suitable for outside? He kind of has the frame, size, and speed to play both positions so I was wondering which one he'd be more productive at.

    Also, how does he compare to James Laurinitis at ILB? What's Conner better at than Laurinitis and vise versa.

    I think he'll play MIKE in a 4-3 just like Posluszny for the Bills.

          As I've said numerous times before, I believe that Connor is at his best when playing MLB.

          He has the speed to play in the OLB, but it's his ability to fight through blockers that makes him a great prospect. And he IS a great prospect.

          I honestly believe that he doesn't have a clear-cut weakness in his game.

            Yes, as a MLB.

              I like him best as a 4-3 MLB, but he can probably play 4-3 SLB & WLB very well too. I also think he has the potential to be a great 3-4 MLB and SLB. Connor is a great LB prospect, I would love for the Patriots to snatch him or Laurinaitis.

                connor isnt better then laurinatis, i can tell you that...he isnt as fast, tenacious, or as good in coverage. However, he does get off of blocks better and he may have slightly better instincts then James. In the end, Id definately give the nod to Laurinatis, but not by too too much. Laurinatis is probably a top 10 pick while Connor is more in that 10-15 range. In perspective, I had Laurinatis to the Eagles at 9 and Connor to the Saints in my recent mock.

                  Gotta question whether Lauranaitis is faster than Connor, i'll go out on a limb and say he isnt. Both are instinctive, both are probably better suited to playing inside although Connor would probably do well as an olb in a 4-3. Personally i dont like getting into the whole 3-4, 4-3, cover 2, Tampa 2.......thing, guys can play they find a spot for them and defenses change all the time, dont like all that "where can he play" talk.

                    Connor showed up in big games. Laurinaitis didn't. That says a lot.

                    Based on numbers, Connor did a lot better in pass coverage than JL, too.

                    Connor does have a slight concern about a knee that had fluid buildup after several games this year.

                      I demand stats for proof.

                      Dan conner hasnt even played any big games.

                        Dan Connor is faster, James isnt very fast. Hes not close to the prospect AJ Hawk was a couple years ago.

                        But, I would still takes James. James is more instinctive. He doesnt get off blocks very well though.

                            Connor didnt have 27, that's exaggerated by about 10 I believe. If I'm not mistaken, he has 18 tackles against OSU. Very good, yes... but you exaggerated it a lot. Plus, what happened to PSU in that "big game".. 37-17 OSU, correct? PSU's Defense was on the field more and OSU ran the ball more.

                              It's not comparing teams and who showed up and who didn't. It's about whose performance came through in big games and who had the bigger impact while on the field.
