    just my opinion, but I think the team, in one way or another, have now addressed the 4 positions that most needed help.

    can't ask for much more than that. let's get them to camp, coach them up, and we'll see where it takes us.

    I think at least half our recent acquisitions are from the mid-atlantic region...

    From nfldraftcountdown.com (who had him as a 2nd/3rd rounder):

    Strengths:
    Smooth natural athlete...Good timed speed and quickness with a burst...Excellent sideline-to-sideline range...Really fluid and looks like a natural in coverage...Active and has a good motor...Good instincts...Does a nice job of evading blocks...Decent pass rusher and blitzer...Aggressive...A playmaker with good hands and ball skills.

    Weaknesses:
    Extremely undersized and really needs to add weight..Must get stronger...Finesse player who is not very physical..Has trouble taking on and shedding blockers...Not stout versus the run...Durability's a concern...Won't be a good fit in every scheme.

    Notes:
    Brother of former Hokie and NFL defensive end Nathaniel Adibi...Redshirted in '03 and then missed some time during the 2004 season after tearing a tendon in his right biceps...Offers a lot of potential on special teams...Lack of size is obviously a major drawback but he certainly has the talent to be a starter in the right system.
