...on ESPN News? My buddy was the one doing the interview and gave me a heads-up, but I didn't have time to pass it along to the Planet. It was pretty good, but like most interviews, nothing earth-shattering was revealed.

I sent an email to my friend and told him what I thought he should touch on (Woodley's stat line, his first ever pick on any level, etc...) and sure enough those were the exact questions and subjects he touched on. The funny thing was he never looked at my email prior to the interview and thought I somehow stole his script.

Woodley is not only an obvious terror on the field, but he comes off as well-spoken (especially for such a young guy), enthusiastic, and an all-around solid type of guy. What a tremendous acquisition for this franchise...he could wind up being the best second round pick this team as ever had.

This would be great for the franchise if this ended up happening. That would mean Woodley would be better than Mr. Jack Lambert!!

He went to UMich which is a great academic institution. If he actually attempted to apply himself then he probably did well for himself.

And Jack Ham, and Dermontti Dawson, and Carnell Lake were also great 2nd rounders.

Although with only that one start under his belt, he's already surpassed the contributions of 2nd round picks Ricardo Colclough, Alonzo Jackson, Scott Shields, and Jeremy Staat combined.

Good call Ruthless.

I started thinking the same thing with Lambert coming to mind right away, so I started a separate thread ranking the all-time greatest picks in each slot. Check it out.

Write it down, next year The Wood will be our defensive captain. I remember the summer of his rookie training camp that the coaches remarked the level of maturity this young man possessed, his committment to his craft and work ethic he displayed on the field. This is huge for this organization that we have a leader that will not only lead with his words but his example as well. Last year there was an article on him stating that he wanted to crack the starting line-up this year and make an impact on the field so that he can help be a leader of this defensive unit. I remember reading this and thinking, what determination.... confident but not cocky. This is yet another example of why this organization has flourished throughout the years, because its committed to finding character people to put on the roster. Between Wood and FWP winning NFL honors this week, this season may prove to be something special for our devoted fanbase. Its great to be part of "The Nation!"

I could care less about their football program. Their academic institution is in my opinion second to NONE in the US for state schools. Some will say the UC's like UCLA and UC Berkeley, BUT I say that UMich Med/Law/Business School/Undergraduate schools outweigh ever so slightly UCLA and UC Berkeley. I think for undergraduate they are ranked 26th nationally while Berkeley (21), UVA (23), and UCLA (25). So for undergraduate they are very competitive and I think their graduate schools are better.

Not as long as Silverback plays for the Steelers. He (Silverback) brings too much intensity and attitude not make him the defensive captain. My 20 cents... :2c :P

Hey, buddy! I went to Cornell, which is an Ivy League school. While part of it is a private university (College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Engineering, School of Hotel Administration, Graduate School, Law School, Johnson Graduate School of Management, and the off-campus Medical Schools), another part is the considered to be the land grant college of New York (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College of Human Ecology, School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and College of Veterinary Medicine), making them statutory colleges which are partially funded within the SUNY system (my friends that were New York residents in one of the statutory colleges paid significantly less than I did as a Pennsylvania resident in one of the private colleges). We suck at football, though (but have a pretty good hockey team).
