    It's early but T'eo could be there mid first round. I have a feeling that because of Alec Olgetree's athleticism he is going to push T'eo for the top ILB spot. He will put up some impressive numbers in his work out. If T'eo goes 1 and and Olgetree goes 2 I think it could benefit the Steelers in that they could move back and get Kevin Minter who I feel is a better fit next to Timmons than Ogletree is.

    The Chargers just spent an early pick on a rush linebacker (Melvin Ingram), so why would they do that again? Well, Shaun Phillips will be a 32-year-old free agent next March, so San Diego will need a complement for Ingram.

    Yeah, and how many of them had Melvin Ingram going in the first round? We will see, but Dion Jordan is going to be a first round pick in this draft.

    And all of these ratings were based on last years play. He is tearing it up this year.

    I had Melvin Ingram going in the first round since he was a premier pass rusher but I'll admit that i never thought Chandler Jones was going to go in the first round.

    Yeah I dont know what Rob is talking about. A lot of people had Ingram in the first round. I think he means Bruce Irvin who has actually turned out to be a solid pass rusher for Seattle. Everyone was questioning Pete Carroll for that pick but he is getting the last laugh so far.

    T'eo is a football player. IMHO, he is a better prospect than Keuchly (who went 9th I believe). If we could get that value in the first, I'd be thrilled.

    Ogletree, Jones, and Rambo all looked like dog meat against S Carolina. John Jenkins was about the only defensive player playing with passion. I don't know why, but defensive players from this Georgia team scare me.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    I agree about T'eo, but the difference this year from last year IMO is that there are a lot more better plays ahead of T'eo this year than there was last year ahead of Keuchly. Thus I think he may be available mid 1st round.

    And I think Ogletree played well versus So. Carolina Saturday. Keep in mind that he and Rambo were playing in only their 2nd game of the year due to their suspensions. But overall the Dawgs didnt do well on defense.

    yeah, 4.5 sacks after 5 games for a rookie isn't too shabby...

    Naw, Ingram wasn't considered a first round lock in October Last year by a lot of people and it wasn't even considered a lock until he tore up the Senior Bowl. And there is no comparison with Dion Jordan and Bruce Irving. Just wait, you guys will be late to the bandwagon. 6-5, 250 lbs of a cat quick pass rusher.
