    If you guys thought Pat Angerer dominated against the pass for Iowa you're gonna want to read about A.J. Edds. A converted TE, Edds is a superb cover LB and great in terms of pass rush and run defense. He picked of FIVE, count 'em, FIVE passes last season. Although he is a bit hesitant in the blitz and doesn't show elite speed for a LB he is one of the many sleeper picks in the draft. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find his highlights but here is his pre-draft analysis:

    This is the guy I'm aiming to fix our ILB problems, specially in passing coverage.

    Him and Pat Angerer made it a nightmare for Iowa opponents to pass over the middle. Although Angerer is the more natural ILB I believe that Edds can make and easily conversion to the middle. Getting both Edds and Angerer would be a dream come true for me. Imagine if the Packers generate a Iowa hawkeyes reunion with Bryan Bulaga, Kampman, Angerer and Edds.
