    Totally disagree. Think you need to watch the game tape to see the difference. Jones was a beast at Georgia. He could do everything. I think same would be a good Kevin Greene brute force style to complimen Jarvis's Lloyd like athleticism.

    I did see JJ college game tape (youtube). I haven't seen Sam. My point was in the striking similarity, namely in both were good enough to earn SEC DPOY. Both had poor 40s. One is "a steal" at 15 overall. The other guy is a 6th round projection. It doesn't seem to add up.

    I think someone is going to get a steal in Sam. I don't know how well he'll transition to OLB but that seems to be where he'll play. Guy has a motor. I can remember watching Georgia and Jones just flat out impressed me. Even when he didn't make the play. He was always somehow involved.

    Jones = Sam? Are you suggesting that Sam will also be a non-factor as a rookie?

    Many great players were non-factors as rookies. You're just too dense to see it.

    I think Sam could be a rich man's Carlos Emmons or a poor man's Clark Haggans.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    They could not be more different, way to look at just the workout numbers and form an opinion

    Jones might never be a sack artist or a pass rushing specialist but he can definitely play MLB in a 34 or SAM in a 43, hes a very very natural linebacker.

    Sam is not a natural linebacker at all, probably doesnt have the ability to be a 34 OLB pass rusher and doesnt really have the size to be a full time DE.

    Very Weird comparison based solely on 40 times i assume, and maybe being SEC DPOY
