I call man crush on 5 fingers of death ;o)
Didn't Follett lead the PAC 10 in tackles last year? I also believe he started out as a MLB at Cal as well? Clearly I liked him leading up to this draft myself and had a much higher grade on him but after the Peterson signing stopped addressing OLB's for picks with all the other holes.
You're on to something ... It would be an awesome story for a Detroit Lion's 7th rounder to be a contributor. I'm cheering for him.
Absolutely. I think Follett could do it too. At least a good ST guy.
On the teams who passed on him
"They're gonna pay for it," says Follett. "I'm gonna go out there and hit their players and take them out of the game.
"But I'm excited. They're going to give me a good shot over at the Lions. They're the ones who put their neck out and drafted me."
It's good to have someone who wants to prove something. And furthermore embraces the opportunity as a challenge to overcome rather than a negative experience.
"I try my best to keep my head up and stuff like that," he says. "But it's bred in me. You guys kinda see how I play. When I see somebody with the ball, if I get a chance to hit somebody as hard as I can, I'm gonna do it."
SCA Prowler is my Xbox Live Gamertag
These are the type of players the Lions need. Even if he is only a special teamer, its this kind of attitude that we need to become a respectable team. He'll be a blue collar guy in a blue collar city.
WLB David Thornton - 225 lbs.
MLB Stephen Tulloch - 235 lbs.
SLB Keith Bulluck - 235 lbs.
I like Levy in the Tulloch role, like P-L said, with Follett in the Fowler role. Naturally, Foote would be ideal for ya'll. A vet from a winning franchise and the mentality he brings would be good in establishing a winning attitude.
