As for Kizer being picked first from 1-5 Notre Dame.. remember the last QB picked high from a losing program (at the time) based on skill level was Jake Locker.. look how that turned out. Sure some folks say "it's the team around him that's awful" Well unless the team he goes to is Loaded with talent (and if it's a top 10 pick, that's really not the case) then he's going to be going to an awful team in the NFL too. Kizer probably needs to stay another year, sure he may go #1 as mocked, but he is more likely a sure bet to Bust as someone with a lower skill set from a winning program.
The Ravens send the Chargers their 1st and 3rd rd picks this yr and next for their 1st rd pick
The Cowboys send QB Romo to the Jest for their 2nd rd pick
The Dolphins sned QB Tanneyhill to the 49ers for their 2nd rd pick
The Bears send QB Cutler to the Dolphins for their 2nd rd pick
Erin Henderson had a solid year at weakside linebacker for the Vikings. At just 26, he has a bright future ahead of him.
Leroy Hill, OLB, Seahawks. Age: 29. Re-signed with Seahawks (1 year)
Leroy Hill, bastard of Lannisport, is a three-down weakside linebacker with no liabilities, save for health. He was always injury-prone, but made it through unscathed in 2011. He'll be 30 on Sept. 14.
Manny Lawson, OLB, Bengals. Age: 28. Re-signed with Bengals
As expected, Manny Lawson thrived in the 4-3. He was a stout run defender as a two-down strongside linebacker in Cincinnati's stop unit.
Rocky McIntosh, OLB, Redskins. Age: 29. Signed with Rams
I called Rocky McIntosh an idiot for re-signing with the Redskins last offseason. He's not a good fit in the 3-4. I don't get how he didn't understand that. Maybe he'll learn his lesson and sign on with a 4-3 team.
Phillip Wheeler, OLB, Colts. Age: 27. Signed with Raiders (1 year)
Phillip Wheeler is a pretty solid two-down weakside linebacker who thrives in run support. The Colts should re-sign him.
