I would love mcclain, and or Aaron Curry, or both would also be nice, both are 1st round tallent players, both could add depth to our LB core, both could become our next mlb or even LB core.
"If your going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big"
I find it hilarious that we want to bring in first round talents for positions like LB but when we have a first round talent in a lineman, we want him run out of town.
I don't see McClain offering us much. He is a big, downhill run thumper. Plus, how often do we play 3 LBs anymore? I don't have access to the usage stats, but I would be willing to be that our NB has been used more than Roach at SLB. I mean, he is physically very gifted, but I don't know that he has the coverage instincts to be of any use to us.
Just in a quick glance, it looks like Roach has played roughly 1/3 of the defensive snaps, so yeah, it appears as though NB is used far more often.
From what I've read, McClain was beat out by a 4th rounder. Raider fans can't stand this guy. Apparently he gets run over by RBs often. He is slow, and the from what I understand, he's a bust. Signing this guy may not be worth it. Other then his college days and a good combine, he's trash.
Pass. Move along. Nothing to see here.
McClain is garbage. But I liked what I saw from Curry last season and from everything I've read he is a great person too. But if two organizations have dropped you after being the 4th overall pick in 2009 then there obviously has to be something wrong with his game. We are so ****ed when Urlacher retires.
Move Hardin(add some weight with offseason program first) next year to WLB and Briggs to SLB.
Resign Campbell, Spencer, Melton and Urlacher
Sign Andy Levitre, OG; Jared Cook, TE
Draft RD1 Jake Matthews, OT; RD2 Larry Warford, OG; RD4 Denard Robinson, WR; RD5 BA CB; RD6 BAFS
You may think you know but you're horribly blind...
