    Lee seems to be a hard nosed guy who knows how to play football. Instinctive, smart, well studied and he just gets the job done. I think that we could use a guy like Sean Lee. I wonder how well he and Dansby would complimenteach other in the middle.

    Probably very well given Lee athletic limitations and Dansby's lesser degree of prowess as a stack and shed type player.

    Lee should be a Ted or Mike backer in the 3-4 depending on your lexicon. I know you know Jim, but other may not know that a Mike doesn't just mean the middle linebacker in a 3-4 and they have separate tags - I just wanted to clarify that statement above.

    Any thoughts on PSU CB AJ Wallace?

    I tend to stay away from PSU corners for the most part as they are taight a dump and bail technique and do not operate a more stringent zone or man to man often. They rely on a cover 3 a great deal and do little to mix it up.

    The result is they often are not very experienced corners in the grand scheme of things. Tom Bradley was there when I was there, and that's what he did then, and what he relies on now a great deal.

    Personally, I would give those guys a wide berth if you catch my drift. Maybe head in another direction.

    Dunno Conu, Lee to me is one of those PSU ILB's who is limited athletically but the scheme helped in college.

    The guy from PSU on my radar is Mickey Shuler Jr..

    Not bad, picked up the slack when Quarless was in the dog house.

    PSU produces steady players at LB over he last few years. The supposed athletic freaks benefitted from the scheme more than the "safe" and steady players like Lee and Posluzny IMO.

    I know this was directed to Conuficus but I felt the need to let you know since you are interested in Wallace. From everything I know, Wallace has been a huge disappointment to PSU and NFL Scouts. They gave him a huge red flag when they found out that Wallace is rarely in the film room and does not work hard at all, really.

    And Dan Conner, anyone who could put up with Rosanne Barr is certainly tough enough to deal with 310 pd Guards..

    What?

    As for Shuler, 7th rd prospect, great blocker, plays ST, what's not to like?

    Better info I could provide.

    That'll be reflected in the rankings.

    Maybe Amari Spievy would be a better option if we're looking for CB depth.

    The highlight video on that site makes him look really bad. Invisible in fact.

    That's not a pure highlight reel. Includes lowlights too.

    It's one of a couple reasons why he's gotten a late round-free agent grade. The other being lack of responsibility, which showed up in his grades.

    The guy I see on that video is a guy I might spend a 6th rounder on. No higher, imo.

    I am really curious, are there any players coming off an injured season who were very highly rated before the injury?

    Those guys can be great value picks. Like Jasper Brinkley last year.

    Sean Lee?

    That isn't a highlight reel at all. That is 3 games broken down into plays that focus on specific areas that are important to being a LB on the next level IMO.

    POA, Mobility/Coverage and Reading the action.

    If you want highlights there are a bunch more videos for that. That video should should you what he does well, what he does not so well and other identifiable nuances. I hope anyways

    Lee hurt his ACL in 2008, and hurt his knee in 2009 and missed I think 3 games....'08 was a wash i believe.

    Long thin legs like that are liable to get hurt in pile ups.

    Hm.

    Personally I LOVE the video for showing all phases, strengths AND weaknesses. I hate when it's just highlights. You can't assess players at all that way.

    PSU training staff has historically not put as much emphasis on building lower half strength as other regimes, and focuses on keeping player "loose" rather than muscle bound. Like a boxer as an analogy.

    Most Penn State players you can expect them to need added lower half training coming out. Thats my take, so take it for what it's worth.

    Little bit more than a year then hurt my shoulder. Transferred out later on that year....saved money. Tuition went from $15,000.00 a semester to $8,000.00 - makes sense.

    Isn't that when their cafeteria discontinued conch fritters from the menu?
