  • Mike Mayocks OLB Rankings

    Beason

    Timmons

    Posluszny


    I found that to be interesting for the top 3. I actually like him mroe than Kiper, and think he does a damn good job. He said Timmons's hype was pre combine when people thought he was 6'3 or something, and once they measure him to be 6'0 it basically turned alot of people off. I guess in a way fans such as us, still hype him not taking that into a consideration.

    But if these are the rankings, and all 3 are on the board, what than?

      Yeah I like him alot actually, and can listen to him talk prospects all day.. I tend to not stand Kiper when he talks.

      But Beason I think will do well in a cover 2, but as he broke down tape, it seemed beason has the instincts, and measureables that allowed him to be ranked higher.

        Also in the combine, his footwork was great, better than Poz's but Poz's was still good, I'll stick to my original want from a OLB and that's Beason,

        Jon Beason

        Height: 6-1/4 | Weight: 237 | 40-Time: 4.72

        Official Bio

        Strengths:
        Terrific athlete...Short but not necessarily small...Very good speed and quickness with a burst...Outstanding instincts and awareness...Is strong, physical and plays much bigger than he is...Solid tackler and a violent hitter...Has sideline-to-sideline range...Solid in coverage...Always seems to be around the action...Versatile with experience at all three (SAM, MIKE, WILL) linebacker positions...Has a motor that never stops...Fantastic leader with excellent intangibles...A great special teamer.

        Weaknesses:
        Undersized and does not have the ideal height that you look for...Frame might be maxed out...Overly aggressive at times and as a result he will miss a few tackles and get fooled...Doesn't have real fluid hips...Not a great blitzer...Gets engulfed by massive blockers...Battled some injuries and durability is a legitimate concern.

        Notes:
        Began his career as a fullback...Also participated on the indoor track team in the spring of 2006...Best suited for the weakside at the next level but could also play the middle in certain schemes...Could be the next in a long line of great Hurricane linebackers such as Ray Lewis, Jonathan Vilma and D.J. Williams...Has just about everything you look for except height and can be a three down player in the pros.

          Beason over Timmons and Poz is very interesting to say the least. Here is how I would rank them personally.

          1. Lawrence Timmons
          2. Jon Beason
          3. Paul Posluszny
          4. Justin Durant - I hope we can get him in the second round.
          5. Rufus Alexander
          6. Quincy Black
          7. Tim Shaw
          8. Antwan Barnes
          9. Earl Everett
          10. Rory Johnson

            beason could possibly fall into the late 1st early 2nd so maybe we should trade down and accumulate some picks. because weather it be poz, beason, willis, or timmons with the exception of willis they are probably all around the same talent wise. so maybe it would be wise to trade down into the the late 1st and land either or.

              Agreed, we have too many needs, if we try to get Everette, who might drop to the third, than I'd rather stay where we are, otherwise trading down is what we will probably do.

                I believe now it was

                Beason
                Timmons
                P. P.
                Stewart Bradley

                I cant remember if there was a 5th or not or just top 4. But SB was the 4th.

                  My LB rankings would be
                  1) Willis-who can play OLB and i think would be an interesting pick 4 our SAM
                  2) Timmons-Still like the guy, he produced at FSU and made alot of big plays
                  3) Posluzsny-Protype LB's mentality, great leader, everything u look for in a LB
                  4) Beason-undersized, ran an average 40, but still produced at the U
                  5) Stew Bradley, may be a good SAM if we need one

                    I knew I liked Mayock. I've had Beason as the best OLB in the draft for a while now and he'd be a great pick at #20 or in the 2nd, though likely be gone in round 2 before us.

                      Indeed, I like how Mayock critiques of technique on plays, not just how many big plays he's had, which I think Kiper tends to lean towards.

                      That's why I believe he prefers Beason over Timmons. Beason appears to have better technique, and better feet from what I saw at the combine.

                      To be honest though, I'm on the Paul Posluszny band wagon after the Combine. He ran a way better 40 time than I expected, I was hoping he'd run somewhere in the 4.75 range, but he was quite a bit faster than expected. Need to check his Pro Day 40...

                      I used to be a fan of Timmons, but I'm unsure now. I fear he might have some tackling issues with his lack of size if he plays strong side linebacker for us. I'd rather have a sure tackler in Posluszny or, take a corner in the first and wait to the third to get Quincy Black or Tim Shaw in the third or fourth round. Decent speed is a need. Tired of the slow linebackers we had like Carlos Emmons. Even more, we need sure tacklers and great blitzing linebackers with Spag as our defensive coordinators.

                        According to a Newsday article, it says we are going to start Wilk on the weakside, and if thats true, and not smoke, I wouldnt be suprise if all this LB talk in terms of draft is BS. I mean we did bring in Dwayne Jarrett for a workout. Lets put it this way, last year I was shocked as well when we picked Kiwi, and I am preparing myself for our first round pick not to be any of these LBs. If Wilk is our WILL backer, I think we go CB, Safety, or WR. I wouldnt be suprised if we pass on Beason, Timmons, and Poz.

                          If we dont move Kiwi to SAM we need to fill that void and i still have Patrick Willis as the best pick for us there because I'm higher on him than most and feel he can play outside, the strongside in our alignment

                            If Wilk is going to start on the weakside, the Giants were talking to Stewart Bradley at the Senior Bowl. He is basically the only prototypical SLB in the draft.
