He is a high second rounder at best. I mean he is a stud, but I am not sold on Greenwood.
Quote: CBSsportsline: Morlon Greenwood to the Texans. It's not that Greenwood is a bad player, it's just that he's not nearly as good as the Texans think he is, evidenced by the $7 million signing bonus they gave him. Greenwood played outside linebacker for the Dolphins at 229 pounds. The Texans plan to play him inside in their 3-4, but the question is whether he's big enough to handle the pounding in there. Greenwood has quickness and is fast enough in coverage, but can he hold up against the run. The Texans clearly spent too much on this player, particularly with Kendrell Bell and Edgerton Hartwell -- two linebackers who have played inside in the 3-4 -- sitting there as unrestricted free agents. This one gets the nod as the worst, just ahead of the stupid money the 49ers paid to get Jonas Jennings.
Do you guys realize we could have gotten Kendrell Bell with that type of money. I mean I know Bell has been hurt, but if he returns to 2/3rds of what he was he is better than Greenwood. I think we should look to grab an ILB in the second or in the third. I like Jerome Mathis WR as a deep threat to compliment Johnson and Daryl Blaylock a great pass rusher, cause Peek is our best outside linebacker and Babin is just not there yet I also like Earnest Shazor.

The guy that wrote this didn't even do elementary research. Greenwood is and has been 238 lbs or the same size as Sharper and Foreman. Should tell you something that he really doesn't have comments on his play but on his size and then gets that wrong.

Not true. Bell got $10 mil for signing and will be over $5 mil per year on the cap. Capers has a vision for what he wants and just because someone is great in another system (yes even another 3-4 system) doesn't mean they would be good for the schemes Capers wants to run.

I like Ruud. Every time they show a Nebraska game, his name is called on basically every defensive play. I dont know why hes not getting the hype that some other LBs are getting. Maybe its because hes only 6'1 but Id rather have production over size anyday.

I agree with you , Rudd is Fast and in a 3-4 that means alot , I still think Rudd is the best one available for our defensive sceme.

barrett ruud would be an awesome addition to this linebacking corp but he wouldn't start his rookie season...he'd be in the heavy rotation...probably with wong or greenwood...but the kid can play

He runs a slow 40 though, only a 4.72.

The play most people compair him to is Bruski of the patriots, who isn't that fast ethier. But both get job done.
