Post Austin Spitler - LB - Ohio State- 7th round pick
Quote:
Overview
Solid linebacker who toiled in the shadow of James Laurainaitis for 3 years. Named co-captain as senior. Special teams standout as underclassman. Intelligent - Big 10 All-Academic performer.
Strengths
Good size and strength to play OLB position. Able to shed blocks and make plays inside the tackles. Good mobility allows him to play sideline to sideline. Great in preparation - rarely misreads or bites on misdirection.
Weaknesses
Will often gamble on rush and over-commit, taking himself out of the play. Not the same level of natural ability and production as Laurainaitis or Hawk and may suffer in comparison.
Projection
4th - 5th round. Combine and pro day performances will be important to his overall rating.

OLB #4 from this draft. I'm not pleased with this approach.

He's an ILB, and it's our 2nd ILB. We drafted 2 OLBs.

Definitely not. Folsom was the size of my thumb, Spitler is twice his size.

Actually, they're the same size. I was looking at Edds' size....so just disregard my contribution to this thread.

Never even heard of this guy so I am on record that he is a steal with huge upside & potential!

First of all you got to think the the bottom LB's will be asked to play special teams. That's a no brainer. Someone has to. Replacing JP and JT (2 LB's) was needed....

Dansby was a one for one with Porter. Miami removed Porter & added Dansby. They also traded for Dobbins. So 5 new LBers during the draft?

That is overkill no matter how you cut it.

Dansby is an ILB. He took over Channing's spot and Channing is gonna move to Akin Ayodele spot. Joey/Jason will be replaced with Wake and Misi.

Dansy is ILB, Joey and JT were OLB's

Actually I think Dansby is replacing Akin. Channing is going to stay at the Mike and Dansby is going to go to the 'Mo' ILB position, as far as I know.

Thanks for the correction PR. Makes sense since Dansby is a lot more mobile than Crowder. What are the chances Micah Johnson comes in as a UDFA to add some beef?

Yes, I know. I was just saying it was a one for one swap. Use Akin if you must, but it was a still one for one swap.

Sounds like that are moving Wake into a starting job, so there is Porters replacement. I get the Misi pick & sounds like a solid pick. Not a huge fan of the Edds pick, but ok. I get it. Get a backup or future player, but the last two picks were simply overkill on the LBers position. No way Miami keeps 4 rookie LBers on the roster no matter what.

Seriously? We loose Porter (4x pro bowler) - Taylor (6x pro bowler) and people think we should only draft one or 2 OLB's?

The chances of 1 guy making it are slim enough... We need a star OLB to come in, I hope we take 2 or 3 more of the undrafted guys to come in and compete....

Its a numbers game, the more players competing the better chance of one sticking...
