  • What defensive rookies will have the most success in 2007?

    All pre draft we've discussed which players are the best, but now that they're drafted and part of a system, who will have the most successs this season?

    I think that Paul Posluszny will have a huge year for the Bills knowing that he will start at MLB on day one. He has the ability to be this years DeMeco Ryans/Lofa Tatupu. If Brandon Meriweather starts for the Patriots at free safety I think he will win DROY.

    Weddle

    Its easy to pick the first rounders, but Weddle gets 5 picks and makes a couple of game changers his first year as a safety in the league. All he did was make plays in college......and he will do the same on sundayz.

    No matter what happens, Eric Weddle will have a better season than Terrence Kiel could ever dream of.

    i think his impact will be more off the stat sheet personally.. btw havnt seen your post in awhile may be blind, but if not good to see you again

    He may not have the most upside of other rookie LBs, but he's by far the most ready for the NFL, having played ILB and OLB, 3-4 and 4-3, and being the student of the game that he is.

    Again, I already said that Jon Beason is my pick for DROY, I became a big fan of his before the draft, and I think he'll be a stud for Carolina.

    LaRon Landry and Gaines Adams are both guys that should have a lot of early success.

    Some middle rounders that I think can make early impacts are Ray McDonald for the Niners, Tank Tyler for the Chiefs, and Josh Wilson for the Seahawks.

    Vilma has only played in it for 1 season and still posted 100+ Tackles..

    The big difference? Look at Vilma's 3 DL... He's shedding blocks constantly.

    How is Timmons too small for ILB?

    he's 6'0 234lbs. He's going to be a WLB/WILB guy.. Like Bart Scott.

    Scott is only 6'2 240lbs.
    Lewis is only 6'0 250lbs.
    Dqwell Jackson is like 5'11 240lbs
    Donnie Edwards is 6'1 228lbs.(Mack LB for San Diego)
    Bruschi is 6'1 244lbs
    Jon Vilma is 6'1 230lbs

    Timmons is average size for the position. It's his demeanor.

    Again though, Timmons will be playing Mack in a season or 2, we'll be adding another DE/OLB in next years draft. Giving us a young group with Foote, Woodley Timmons and 2008 draft pick.

    I give Woodley the nod because they're going to let him loose in obvious passing situations, in which he'll be perfect on the other side of Aaron Smith. Giving us... Woodley, Smith, Hampton and Keisel.. thats a very tough and underrated DL.



    We normally only play 4-3 in obvious passing downs. And for the umpteenth million time... we're not playing a 4-3 this season as a base or oft-used defense.

    But then again I was worried about Bobby Carpenter his rookie year and we see how that turned out for now.

    I think after Kamerion Wimbley's success in 2006, folks expect athletic defensive ends to be monsters at OLB in a 3/4... I'm rooting for Spencer, but only time will tell if Wimbley's success is an anomoly.
