    Agreed. That's why I'm all about Willis this year. Him and Gocong fight for SLB time this year, and whatever player wins that, the other is the future at MLB.

    I think Gocong could be a very good 4-3 MLB too. I'd just be worried about having him play 3 different positions in 3 years.
    I love PWillis, but now that we are making a playoff run I don't think we will be in position to draft him without trading up. We will also be past Laron Landry at that point I believe so we could go in several different directions, depending on what we decide to do in free agency. In the event that a safety is not brought in in free agency, we could take Michael Griffin with our first rounder assuming his stock stays the same, and then for LB we could take Anthony Waters in the second, maybe even the third round. I've watched him play many times since I love Clemson, and he is a playmaker. Patrick Willis is the better prospect, but Waters has a lot of potential. He's a quick sideline to sideline LB, and racks up tackles. He also led the ACC in first hits he's also pretty good in coverage, at the very least noticeably better than Trotter. His injury is a concern, but by the combine we should no where he's at and whether he's worth drafting. If he can fully recover, I wouldn't mind passing up picking a LB in the first round as long as we get him. We need a stud in our LB corps.

    • I think Waters will probably be a day 2 pick. I love the guy, but he was a 2nd-3rd rounder before the ACL tear. The injury won't do anything but hurt him.

      • I just looked up Waters on another site, and I like him as a later round pick. The ACL tear is a concern, but he has abilities and instincts. I'd be fine taking him as a developmental prospect. More talent can't hurt.

          Exactly, he's thirty. I think Cole will be at his level by that time too.

          Since when is Briggs a product of the system? It seems like you just made that up.
          Just what I've heard. That's the reason they supposedly would be ok with letting him go.

          Imagine June in a 4-3.
          Since when doesn't Indy run a 4-3?
          Nick Foles are you really my daddy??!..?

          • I'm pretty sure the Colts always run a 4-3, but I'd never want him. He's way to undersized and isn't all that great at stopping the run which we've had some consistancy problems there.

            • We run a Cover 2. It's different.

              • Again, I like the way this defense is playing right now, and I don't want to mess with the chemistry. We all know it takes at least a year to get situated in Jim Johnson's defense. I'd rather have a rookie learning and growing into the system with Gaither and Dhani out there than paying a lot of money to Cato June or Briggs.

                  Cover Two is way different than a traditional 4-3.

                  • Dillen, I know June is fast, but do you think he has the size, leverage, and shedding ability to play SLB in our defense under Johnson? I have no idea...

                      No way. He would get eaten up at strongside in 4-3. Plus he couldn't tackle a junior high runningback.

                        No way. If people think McCoy is weak and gets blocked too easily, I wonder what they'd think if they have a worse player making 5x as much.

                        • Lawrence Timmons is declaring. If Landry, Nelson, Willis, Griffin, and Revis are gone he'd be my next choice. Easily the best SLB prospect. I'd move Gocong back to DE then.

                          • Sounds like a long list, Dillen. Still, if the Eagles win their first playoff game, they won't draft until 25th at the earliest. Tough to say they'll do any worse than that, especially if they have the home game agaisnt the weak #6 seed.

                            I can't find much on Timmons on this and other sites. Can you give us some details?

                              Ha, yeah long list. 5 deep, always be prepared.

                              Timmons has pretty good size, off the top of my head 6'3" 230. He looks pretty stocky to me though, although it might be the pads. Really fast. Strong. Very good blitzer. Hard hitter.

                              I looked up his stats. He's listed at 6'3" 227. 74 tackles, 13 TFL, 5 sacks, INT, 2 FR, 3 TDs, 2 blocked kicks.
