    I would love to see us pick up 2 linebackers a defensive end (or tackle) and a safety in the first 4 rounds. The reason I would like 2 linebackers is so we can rotate someone in for aj hawk on downs that are obvious passing downs.

    They say at a 4 you can't read or very little.

    A friend of mine always said Dexter Manley who played for the Redskins was a genius. He graduated from college without being able to read or write.

    A 4 basically means he shouldn't have gotten out of the 8th grade. It clearly affects his ability to learn complicated defenses and to study film.

    I also have concerns about what money does to someone that dumb.

    The wonderlic is overrated. It's not really an accurate measure of intelligence relevant to football. Wonderlic scores don't really translate to being able to learn an offense or defense.

    Randy Moss scored, I believe an 8 or 9 and he was able to pick up the Patriots complicated playbook and break WR records

    Finley scored a 9 on the wonderlic too and last I checked our offense isn't exactly simplistic.

    I can't see Chandler Jones or Vinny Curry as better DEs than Kendall Reyes. Reyes isn't even on this list? Not.

    Shea McClellin was thought to be one of those hard working over achievers. At the combine he showed he was actually athletic and could play as an OLB. I thought he would be a great 2nd round pick for us, but seeing this, I am thinking if TT wants him, he would have to use the 1st on him. He would be a great addition to the team - he does everything good, although not great at anything, except his attitude. I would be pleased if he ends up a Packer.

    Beat me to it 13 Times. Here's a summary of that blog: Pete Dougherty has a blog up in which he says he talked to a scout who concentrates on DL and OLB about possible OLB/DEs available when the Packers pick. He says Melvin Ingram, Quinton Coples, Michael Brockers, Fletcher Cox, and Dontari Poe "for sure will be gone" before the Packers pick. And Whitney Mercilus probably will be gone too.

    He says there's a big group of 3-4 OLB and DEs that will start getting picked in the bottom third of the first round through the middle of the second round and he names the following players in this group.

    OLBs: Courtney Upshaw, Nick Perry, Adre Branch, Vinny Curry, Shea McClellin, Chandler Jones, Bruce Irvin and maybe Ronnell Lewis (the object of Arrigo's man crush).

    DEs: Devon Still, Jerel Worthy, Kendall Reyes and maybe Brandon Thompson.

    Shocked that Mayock has McClellin ahead of Mercilus!
    And Branch..... but Mayock is less racist than most scouts and actually goes by playmaking and speed, size, skills.
    I was hoping we'd get Shea in round 3, or 2, but now I wouldn't mind Teddy taking him at #28, almost the same spot he took Clay.

    There will be someone good at this position when we pick, and I am excited about that.

    7 of those 10 guys up there will end up just okay or bad, or busts.
    1 or 2 could become a force. Let's hope Teddy finds the right one again because imagine if we had another Matthews type.
    IMAGINE!

    It seems like Mayock is choosing to only rank players at one position for these Top 5 lists. Otherwise Melvin Ingram would likely be high up on both OLB and DE. He has Reyes listed as the number 5 DT, tied with Still.

    Here's his top 5-ish DTs:
    1. Fletcher Cox
    2. Jerel Worthy
    3. Michael Brockers
    4. Dontari Poe
    5T. Kendall Reyes
    5T. Devon Still

    Then they'll just read to him lol. What I took notice of is that this is the second corner from LSU to score low.

    I dont think this will affect anything, tape tape tape. Combine was good too. At the end of the daythe kid is still an amazing player and to borrow the metaphor "You don't have to know how to spell toilet in order to know how to use it"
