    He may not be able to handle the blocking schemes he's gonna face in the NFL. He was over-powered in the Alabama game, and I think he had trouble against UPitt too. It's hard not to like Manti the person, but the attention he gets has a lot to do with the program from which he springs. I don't think he's a strong 2nd pick.

    If we get that edge rusher in round one, we might want to be looking at Safety in round two. In the wake of the combine, I wouldn't be surprised if we go O-line in the first round.

    We would have to worry too much about keeping the pressure off him. I simply don't see what you see. My impressions were impacted more from the Pitt & Alabama games than the combine stuff.

    Teo in the 2nd round.

    Why not? Kolbert's history of 2nd round choices is a bust, so it doesn't make a difference who is taken.

    We need to stop richardson and rice and maybe lacy if cinci gets him in the draft.. we need fast, strong, hard tackling players...

    who fits that mold? Elam, Minter, Ogletree, C.Washington, .J. Swearinger, Mathieu(shorty), Brandon McGee, Ansah? etc..

    Te'o is the next tim tebow as far as media attention goes. there will be a Te'o story everyday about him for the next 2+ years.

    i think the bears will draft him as an eventual replacement for urlacher...just a hunch

    No, he has been exposed first by Alabama and now the combine.

    Sorry K, but I have to strongly disagree. Up against equal talent against Alabama and USC, he showed that he is nothing special. He can't disengage when the O-linemen reach him at the second level. Going back and looking at him in those games, that is a constant theme with him. He's made his reputation on playing sub standard teams with sub standard talent.

    He's really a 3rd rounder at best. The Notre Dame hype helped him greatly.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    If the Bengals wind up with Lacy, the tightness in this division will be incredible. But you've got to assume that the Bengals are going to take him or another RB in this draft.
