More of a fifth-round talent or so in my opinion, but will probably go higher since there aren't many good inside linebackers this year.
Interested in someone who has WATCHED UConn games..... is that you?
Film is important, but have you actually watched him in person?
MrSmith above, our Packers could use serious help at ILB, and smaller schools work for Ted Thompson.
But has anyone here actually seen UConn games? I thought they only play basketball at UConn.
