7th Round: Michael Mauti, ILB, 6'2 235 Penn State
Depth never ever hurts, especially when depth can end up being rotational quality steals. Especially in the 7th round. Since it's such a late pick, the FO gambles and takes Mauti, who has the talent to be more than his round but injury concerns, namely ACL tears for both right and left knees, will plunge his stock. He compares to Sean Lee, but his durability is a concern. However, with a 7th round pick you can afford to gamble and if Mauti doesn't pan out, it's not a big deal. If he does, you look like a genius for having picked him. He's a talented, aware LB that plays not on pure athletic strength but with instinct.
Okay, guys. Comments, questions?
I'm enjoying the lively debate.
