I don't think there's anything wrong with that. Other people's evaluations are sometimes going to be right and sometimes going to be wrong but even if you're doing your own evaluation, you're going to be wrong many times. I just don't think there's anything intrinsically wrong with using other people's research and I realize it's going to be faulty at times.

linebacker's more than any other position are the products of a system. thats why certain types fit a particular scheme more than another, its also a reason the arguement goes, you can address this need later since your only looking to plug in a hole thats missing or underachieving in your system. unless your elite talent like Aaron Curry. personally I don't see any of the other linebackers as elite talent, more of team needs around the league. I don't care if Cushing, Rey Mealuga or Matthews himself are all off the board by #15 that only means they're pushing down a possible better player just because of need.

I hope this is the case & someone like Everette Brown slides Houston way.....
