    Guy is in his Senior Year and playing for a championship caliber college team right now. He's 1 inch and 20 pounds away from being identical frame to his older brother. TT has got to be considering drafting him, right? Imagine the duo blitzing from each edge or attacking the same side!!!

    Just cuz he is his brother doesnt mean they are looking at him

    But if they scout him and like what they see, then yeah take him..But take on his skills not his name

    Both brothers were coached by their father in High School and could have similar skill sets. Just sayin, I hope he gets a look by the staff

    Hes a solid player, but no where near the stud his brother was or is. I could easily see him going undrafted, and only as high as maybe a late 3rd. 9 sacks over 4 seasons, and the ducks arent known for playing powerhouse offenses. He should have been getting 5-6 a season off of lineage alone.

    Just to clarify

    Not saying he isnt good, not saying he cant be as good..

    But let his play speak for itself

    I seen the Brett nob slobbers begging for Dylan Favre to be picked up by the Vikings or Packers

    Dont want us to be compared to them lol

    Clay had a total of 94 tackles and 2 FF 5 sacks and 0 INT in his entire college career and yet he was drafted in the 1 st round.

    Casey has 228 tackles 0 FF 9 sacks and 4 INT what makes you think that he would go undrafted really???

    Casy will go in the top 3 rounds for sure he may even go in the first like his bro did.

    I've been thinking about this too. How awesome would it be to have both of them lined up on our D? Trouble is it will not be easy to get him in the draft. I'm not talking about his lineage, or the fact that Clay got overlooked somewhat in the draft, but Casey himself has been no less than outstanding for the ducks. Somebody is going to scoop this Duck up quickly in the draft. I still hope T.T. has his eye on him, but it might not be up to T.T.

    To be fair to Clay, he didn't play his entire college career. At that he was a walk on. so based upon that, those stats are impressive.

    Casey didn't play every game of his first two seasons. Came off the bench and had some minor injuries but eventually improved to be the full time starter during his Junior Year.

    Let me rephrase after reading what I wrote earlier, as I was reading stats from a site that doesnt track across the board. He will NOT go undrafted, but is easily a player that will slide past his spot, not before it.

    would love to have him here, dont think anyone will jump on him in the 1st or 2nd though. That alone may allow us to take a late 3rd round flyer on him, though that would be high. All depends on how we proceed with Barnett and Hawk this offseason.

    I just dont see him as an upgrade to either of these 2 listed above, and unless he can be had in the 3rd or later, I would more than likely pass.

    Sorry.

    The reasonable me says take him where he's valued, and if he's worth it at that spot.

    The irrational me says take him in the first round so we can have A MATTHEWS BULL RUSH!!!

    I was just going to mention this, so thanks for doing it for me. Nobody really has him projected into the first round. He is looking at somewhere in the 2nd-3rd range before his pro day, combine, etc... I think ILB will be high on our list of needs, especially after we trade AJ Hawk. So it all comes down to Ted's uber drafting ability...
