    But with mario we could drop him to LB sometimes and play a 3-4. Have him get to the line then drop back it would be very tricky.

    Williams could be an ok LB and an amazing DE. He's 6-7 295... He'll need to slim down to play LB and that would hurt him because of his height.

    I think he could add pounds and play DT better than lose pounds and play LB. Overall though he's too good of a DE to move anywhere.

    He could have replied like Tauscher did when asked if he would move to guard. Tauscher said he would rather not but if the team needed him to make the switch he would do it and do his best. Tauscher let it be known he didn't want to be moved, but if he had to move to help the team he would.

    I doubt the Pack will ever show any 3-4 fronts. Pickett isn't big enough to play NT in that formation. With an athlete like Mario you could always blitz a DB and drop him into a zone from his DE position though. Peppers has gotten a couple INTs in Carolina like that.

    What the crap!

    A.J. Hawk ran a 4.38 40! That's freaking crazy. (I know I'm probably old news with this, i just watch his interview on ESPN lol)

    From a Viking fan and a Buckeye fan. You guys will be sorry if he is there and you dont draft him. AJ is a beast. He trains with Butch Reynolds, if you know who he is.
    He loves to lay the wood, is tireless and studies his opponents at length. Plus he has the name. Hawk, what a name for a LB. And you cannot have enough players from Ohio State on your team.

    After watching the interview with him, I was impressed.

    Randomly stumbling across this thread was very interesting. Not going to rip anyone for a post 5 years ago, other than the AJ Hawk 40 time. WTF!

    Yeah, how the hell a guy that runs 4.38 40 can't cover even slow TEs?

    Goes to show how stupid the 40 yard dash is...

    it's just another stat for the pundits to waste time talking about. I don't care if the guy can run it in 4 flat, if he doesn't have a good football brain, I don't want him.
