Default LB: From touted to doubted

Quote:
It was the second day of Senior Bowl week and Oklahoma linebacker Clint Ingram was trying to rip the head off of Ohio State center Nick Mangold. Haymakers flew, jerseys were yanked, players screamed – and finally Chad Greenway stepped into the middle of the chaos.

"Whoa!" Greenway yelled, jamming himself between Mangold and Ingram, who were each still swinging wildly. "Get back!"

The fracas came to an abrupt halt and the players shuffled in opposite directions thanks to Greenway, who had stayed in the middle of it all. The situation has become all too familiar for the Iowa linebacker, who has been stuck in his own fight ever since.

Once projected to be a top-10 pick by NFL scouting departments, Greenway has been trapped in the middle of dueling perceptions about his ability over the last few months. On one side, he's viewed as an elite player whose attributes simply didn't test well. On the other, he's billed as a player whose measurables and skill had been highly overrated heading into the predraft process.
the link also shows the top LB's in the draft (which most of y'all probably already know)

Sounds like a great way to get more bang for our buck. This guy obviously has intangibles that don't translate into bench pressing and running sprints. He just plays football well.

What do you think the chances of him falling to #33 are? I know he is considered a great prospect and should be a top 15 pick, but I hope he falls to us in the 2nd round.

Probably very slim, but I didn't really think it through that far. :brickwall

Ditto. Just can't believe he'll slide down that far. Big guy who can drop back and cover, i.e. a three down LB.

i seriously doubt greenway falls that far. too many teams who could use a good linebacker like him in the 2nd half of the 1st round, and not many candidates to leapfrog him. i say minnesota takes him.

Philly at pick 14 if they don't trade up for one of the top DT's.
