I'd take Harris, Poz, Connor, and J Leman (maybe) over him. He is a fantastic player for a sophomore, but he is a bit over hyped.

I didn't see much of him since I don't follow Big 10 much. I remember he picked off Colt McCoy in the Texas game. He seemed like a really good player, and was around the ball a lot. Plus, he's got one of the coolest names out there, so that pretty much instantly makes him awesome. Seriously though, he probably can get into the late 1st round because he's a good commander in the middle and he's got pretty good size, especially as a sophmore. Some random comparisons off the top of my head are Dat Ngyuen and Gerrald Hayes. Hayes isn't so good. I can't really think of one right now. Maybe Matt Wilhelm but more athletic. Anyways, he's a pretty good player, probably a solid #2 in the Big 10 and should contend for the best LB next year.

JL is overrated. I would take Harris, J Leman, Poz and Connor over JL. He is good in coverage, with the obvious knack for the interception, and he is a good blitzer. However, he shows marginal instincts in the run game when it comes to shedding blocks and making the tackle.

He reminds me of Bobby Carpenter before he became a situational passrusher in his senior year, but Carpenter never got the same kind of recognition that JL is getting.

The poll question is worded badly. Obviously he is a good player, but I still feel he is overrated because of the team he is on and who his father was.

It's worded so the guy who made the thread got more votes, but it didn't work.

JL is a good player but he is over rated an last season Poz, Connor, harris were all better players then him now this season i expect him 2 b the second best LB in the big10, an as for the Hawk comparison i don\'t see it, JL is bigger an isn\'t nearly as explosive as hawk was

swagger hopes to escalate quickly but not get out of hand.

3rd Laurenitius is the most overrated player in the Big-10 and probably didn't shed a single block this whole season.
I remember all the talk of Derrick Johnson not being able to shed blocks and how he would be a bust in the NFL. How did that work out?

Oh thanks for reminding me that we were in the NFL thread.... Not to mention that doesn't make him not overrated...
