    What are ya'lls thoughts on picking Lance Mitchell of Oklahoma in the 4th or 5th round. True he didn't have the break out year he should of had, but how could any Ilb do anyting with Dan Cody on the DL? I like his size and speed. He could be a great value pick in the later rounds. Plus who knows if Greenwood will pan out or if Wong doesn't do too well in the middle. Just a little food for thought.... :hmmm:

    It sounds like he lost some speed after the surgery. Possibly he's not completely recovered since its only been 1 year? Maybe we can snag him in the 5th round even...

    I think speed is way more important to the Front Office than I had origianally thought...with that said...I don't think we go Mitchell, although I would not be upset if we did.

    Agreed. If we got him it'd be under the assumption that he'd regain some speed from last year.

    I agree with yall...He's a tackling machine, but I don't know if he has the speed to be a good fit here...

    That's true. He might have lost a step but the kid still hits like a Mack truck, and is always around the ball.
