We did it with Demeco and that turned out pretty well.

I think Weatherspoon can do it. He has proven himself in a 4-3 defense, how hard could it be to play inside or outside in a 3-4? Ray Lewis is still on their team so he can tutor him and get him up to speed.

Transitioning outside to inside in a 4-3 is easier than outside in a 4-3 to inside in a 3-4.

He isn't a great pass rusher which hurts in a 3-4 system and the main reason he isn't great is that he has trouble getting off blocks. This become an issue in a 3-4 where he may have more OL to deal with and given his lack of ideal size for a 3-4 backer it may make this even more of an issue.

If anyone can do it Weatherspoon probably is that guy, I just think there were better options for the Ravens than LB.

He probably is BPA, it would have been a reach to go QB.

Why did you not go with the TE Gresham? He seems a popular pick for the Ravens.

He has injury issues and I rather not waste a pick on a TE unless he is the next Tony Gonzalez or whatnot. I think I can grab a TE in the later rounds.

I think it is a fine pick. Weatherspoon is a great athlete who should be able to transition to middle linebacker. And I agree that Gresham is a huge risk with his knee. I think the only other option at his pick was a Dlineman like Odrick, or a cornerback with Patrick Robinson and Devin McCourty.

Love Weatherspoon but I would've taken McCourty or Robinson.

The Ravens need secondary help badly and dont have picks in rds 3-4 due to the Boldin trade.

When you get to the 26th pick in the first round, you look for guys who are relentless. They may not be the most skilled, but they are the ones who lay it out on the line on every play. The Arizona Cardinals are fortunate such a player fell to us.

Since we are switching to a 3-4, it is imperative to have rush 3-4 LBs to rush the QB. We believe we have that guy. He has great moves and is relentless. As we all know sometimes its that second effort that gets to the QB or forces a bad throw. In our case, we do not have to worry about second efforts, becuase our guy will provide third and forth. We are fortunate that the 2nd rated 3-4 OLB on our board lasted all the way to 26.

So, without further ado, the Arizona Cardinals are proud to select Jerry Hughes- OLB TCU.



Dallas Cowboys are now on the clock.

I was hoping Hughes would fall to the Bucs in the 2nd rd.

Under the radar but a great pick. IMHO

Jerry Hughes is from Texas, I went to high school with him in Sugar Land (Austin HS in Ft. Bend). Wasn't highly recruited and played RB but went to TCU, changed to DE and the rest is history...

Good character guy with blazing speed, just needs to work a little on fundamentals and a bit of coaching and he has a chance to be a stud.

San Diego Chargers select Ryan Matthews, RB, Fresno State

Could of gone with Odrick or McCourty but Matthews is hard to pass up with this pick. The Chargers have officially said houvre to LT.

It was interesting talking to the Jets fans about what their team wanted and needed.

This was their second highest priority but with the way the board fell, this was the best guy available that they needed.



With the 29th pick, the New York Jets draft

Jared Odrick, DE, Penn State

This is a guy that will thrive in Rex Ryan's defense.
