  • Willis+Woodley=Great Draft Combo

    Could we potentally take Willis in the first and Woodley in the second?

    willis ran in the upper 4.3's at his pro day...

    pretty damn amazing, though it'll be adjusted, still a 4.4

    having said that, im not quite sure he'd be a great fit in the 3 - 4 at ilb, i havnt seen much of him on film, but what i have seen is that he isnt a great shed the block and thump guy, which is what you need for the 3 - 4

    he is a hell ofa athlete though, i wish i could see more video of him that proves me wrong

    thanks to steel man for the fresh sig

      He think willis could speed rush off the edge if one of our 3-4 ends held the block fo him.

        whos he, tomlin?

        he may be able to play OLB in the 3 - 4, that would be one hell ofa speed rush off the edge, though he doesnt really have the ideal height you look for

          Willis might actually work out longterm but I don't see Woodley at all. He's too small for both end and olb in the nfl, and I don't think he has coverage skills at all.

              He's not very fluid in the hips either. He's best suited as a DE, even though he is a bit undersized.

                      Lamarr Woodley on Steelers Radar

                      I don' t have a subscription, but Jim Wexell says that the Steelers are keenly interested in Lamarr Woodley from Michigan as an OLB in the 3-4 and his pro-day last week sold them even further.

                      http://story.scout.com/a.z?s=68&p=2&...%2f628466.html

                      is anyone a member to this site?

                      Basically says the Pro-day has sold Tomlin and Colbert on Woodley after reviewing his game tape.

                        I am a huge Michigan fan, so: Please for the love of God do NOT draft Woodley!!!!!!!! If Tomlin and Colbert are sold after watching his game tape, they clearly didn't watch the OSU and USC games. Were Woodley disappeared. Yes, Woodley is a good guy. Yes, Woodley gives great effort. Yes, Woodley has heart. All of which are fine. But he is to small 6-1 and about 260 to play DE, he doesn't have the qucikness to play OLB. He was moved to DE at Michigan, because he doesn't cover well. There are better options out there than Woodley. Both at DE and OLB.

                          all my objections against woodley are the same ones I had against another UM player, Larry foote. Not big or fast enough for the NFL level. The first couple years I thought the steelers were wasting a roster spot by keeping him. Last year I thought Foote was our defensive MVP! So although I am not high on Woodley, who knows?

                            Woodley's timed speed compares favorably with every other DE/OLB tweener in the draft. His timed speed and stats compare very favorably with Shawn Merriman at the combine and at Maryland. The 3/4 OLB is more of a Rush Backer position and does not require great cover skills, and he has time to develop those he does need.

                              Woodley has good timed speed. he does not change directions well at all. He doesn't have much in the way of moves. Woodley doesn't need to agin weight to play OLB. He should lose weight. But he simply is not quick enough. But at 6-1 gaining weight to play DE does work well either.
                              One of the mistakes we have made is getting rid of the OLB that is better at coverage. haggans is our rush LB. He isn't very good in coverage either. If we are sticking with the 3-4 Woodley will not have time to develop. He will ahve to play right away. This just isn't a good option.
