    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - All-American linebacker Paul Posluszny likes to dish out hits - the wide-eyed, steam-coming-out-of-the-nostrils kind of hard hits that can send a running back crumpling to the turf.

    For now, that will have to wait until the fall. While recovering from a knee injury, Posluszny is limited to little more than bumping chests with Penn State teammates during spring practice.

    My concern with Posluszny is going to be that knee.

    If/when they play Ohio State and Paul plays like he did last year, I think he starts to skyrocket up the boards.

    I would love Polslunsky or however you say it. He is one of those throwback kinda players that has the blood on the forehead and snot bubbles when hes blitzing. He plays like hes possesed and hits harder than a tun of bricks.

    Paul Posluszny worries me. With the knee and his size. I think he looks smallish. Ht: 6-2 Wt: 229

    TO ME, he looks small. He reminds me of Rudy. Plays at 100mph, but is just small. Thats my take.

    He has ideal size, and I wanted him in the the first round of this draft after a trade down. He got hurt, didnt enter. He has the same injury as Winston. Winston's was early in the season, Paul's was the last game. He will be lucky to play at all and most likely will not be a first rounder anymore.

    I'm going to dub this the Winston Syndrone.

    Paul has the Winston Syndrone, and we look for him to slide down because of the questions about his knee next year.

    let me start off with saying that i'm a huge penn state fan and watched every game over the years. This guy was hands down the best player on the team as a sophmore, he's tough and never takes a play off. if some of you are concerned about the injury, you shouldn't be it didn't require surgery and he's at 85% now. I would love to see him in a texan uniform but i think the Demeco pick just eliminated any chance of that.

    Posluszny I think will be a SS in the NFL @ 6-2, 229....unless he's not fast enough, and could be in a Cover 2 Defense...it'll depend on his cover skills....

    I'm gonna have to get ESPN Gameplan next year...lol.

    Imagine if we draft him next year we can have him and Babin on the outsides and DeMeco in the middle. Boy would that be a young, talented LB group.

    Im not sold on Babin being an impact at LB. Not on a 4-3 defense. I say we pick up Ahmad Brooks in the supp. draft.

    Our front seven would be:

    Ryans ROLB
    Brooks MLB
    Greenwood LOLB

    Williams RE
    Johnson DT
    Smith DT
    Weaver LE

    Peek, Babin, and Payne would rotate on our d-line.

    6'2" is not to small for a LB. Lewis is like 6'3" right?
