Doubt we are picking high enough in the draft to get this guy. But would he fit with our linebackers and scheme or not? Seems to be another stud we could grab from ND.

I don't think they spend another high pick on a LB. Fuller looks like he'll be a heck of a wr tho

Yeah just thinking out loud. Lots of picks need to go to OL and S first before LB.

I think LB is a need. After Greenway retires (after this season?) and the trading of Hodges (who was borderline starter if not starter-quality) behind Barr and Kendricks we have Edmond Robinson (7th rounder) and Brandon Watts (7th rounder). Audie Cole (7th rounder) is a free agent after this season. Casey Matthews is on the practice squad and is a free agent after this season. I would think the Vikings place an original round tender on Cole or re-sign him but even so, I'm certainly not confident with next season's third starter (presumably Cole?) much less the depth at the position. Given our LB situation I'm still shocked Rick traded Hodges.

Would love to see Edmond Robinson develop. He looks like a baby face but he has that length Zimmer seems to covet in defensive players.

It's a need but not a high pick need. They don't spend much time in base anyway.

pretty bad knee injury for him yesterday. could be a guy we could get in the 4th or 5th rd and stash for a year while he recovers. as far as lbs go i don't think it's a huge need, but it would be nice to have a pure run thumper in there on early downs to allow kendricks to move outside where he's better suited.

Hahahaha 4-5th rd. He will be gone off the board when we pick at #23 in round 1.

He probably won't play in 2016 but he has gobs of talent. I don't see a day 1 selection, though. That was a pretty bad injury. Red-shirt year. I can see him slipping to round 2. Maybe back-end of the round. I'd be surprised if he lasted until the third round.

Just asked a Defensive Coordinator about Jaylon Smith. "Can't take that risk". When? "At all. Poor kid."

Feedback coming back today on Jaylon Smith is not positive. Can confirm reports that he failed his medical exam with multiple teams. #Shame

Post Re: Jaylon smith lb notre dame
he is expected to miss at least one year.. He will be around for a couple rounds I believe due to this
fact. It will be interesting to see where he goes in the draft
