    hes been on my radar since he came out of HS, hes played on some ****** teams and on some ****** defenses but anyone who follows the draft has known who he s for quite some time...i thought it was pretty surprising he went back to school last season. Dont tell me i just regurgitate ESPN garbage, ive seen him play plenty and 4 years of playing well and an incredible season isnt just erased by one game

    I hate when the ignorant accuse the intelligent of regurgitating from {insert source}

    You know, during your entire Te'o rant, you haven't made 1 comment about him as a football player. Not a single comment about his skill/talent. You've basically referrenced some missed tackles in 1 game, and made a dumb as rocks comparison to the Notre Dame schedule.

    - Read & React speed = ELITE
    - Lateral Mobility = ELITE
    - Football IQ / Awareness = ELITE
    - Sideline to Sideline = Very Good
    - Leadership = Very Good
    - Tackling = Very Good
    - Zone Coverage = Very Good
    - Point of Attack Strength = Above Average
    - Blitz = Above Average

    Te'o has no flaws

    (But he's a much better fit in the middle of a 4-3, than a 3-4)
    Banana Fett !?!? Where???

    beautifully said.

    he is a lot like farrior in that he could play all 4 LB positions for us, but like ive been saying hes a complete LB...could play all 7 positions between both schemes

    Can we give Mike Mauti a look from PSU in the later rounds if we dont decide to get an ILB early (Teo), I like Mauti a lot and think he can bring a leadership role right away to this team.

    I think his best position ends up being WLB in a 4-3 - where his vision, agility, sideline to sideline playmaking would make him a virtual Derrick Brooks clone.

    I think he'd also be a very good MLB in a 4-3, where his ability to turn his hips and move will make him very attractive to Tampa 2 teams, and while I don't think he'll be as good physically as Urlacher, he has the same raw leadership and nose for the ball abilities to mirror what Urlacher has been to the Bears. A pure leader, whose impact transcends his ability.

    As for a 3-4, I don't think he's as good of a fit for Pittsburgh because he would HAVE to play the Mack (Timmons). I think only weakness would be exposed playing the Buck (Foote) in a 3-4.

    If he were available at #17, I'd take him in a heartbeat... and then make the case that our personnel now dictated that we play a 4-3. Timmons WLB, Te'o MLB

    If they would move to a 4-3 I want Gerald Hodges in the 3rd

    Timmons , Teo , Hodges/Spence .... I can dig that
