    I keep telling myself the must see something good in Shea, and obviously, as a fan, I'm not "in the know" at all. I hope they're right. I just don't want to see another 1st round bust. Especially since we need help at LB (quality help).

    Urlacher was a safely in college. To equate Shea having a shot at moving from the line to linebacker AS A PRO(!) is not even close to the same thing.
    Learning to be a backer, as a pro, when you don't have any elite skills?
    Dream on............

    Joe, Shea was a 3-4 OLB in college, AND played some DE, in the draft most teams that were looking at picking Shea was at a 3-4 OLB position, not DE, DEFINATELY not 4-3 DE. So there is a solid chance that Shea will stick at SAM, I'm not sold on it, this holds at least a snow balls chance in hell unlike him playing DE.

    Soul, what ever happened to that, you told EVERYONE how great Shea was going to be at DE, and how HE WAS A 4-3 DE, NOT AN OLB! man you gots good jokes....:lol-032:

    First of all, I would be very happy with Mosley if that is the selection. There are many ways to make our Defense better, and he's one of those "ways"; so is Donald, so is Clinton Dix, and so on.

    Now, on to the next point. I think I'm the only one that see's Shea "breaking out" as a Linebacker. Now, that being said, I'm wrong a lot. :smilebig:

    The problem is, he should have never been placed as a "hand on the ground" DE in the NFL. He did some of that in college, but only because "IT WAS COLLEGE", and he could easily get away with it against the competition he played against. This dude is a linebacker in the NFL, and they already wasted too much time trying to make him fit in a role that he isn't. Yea, Urlacher was a Safety in college, but lets keep in mind that Shea and Urlacher are "Very" similar in size and "very" similar in measured athleticism (see combine results for both). Could you envision how well Urlacher would have done at DE? I think he would have had very similar results to what Shea has experienced. So, he'll finally get his shot at the position he "SHOULD" have been playing all along, and it really would not surprise me a bit if he ends up in the middle. It's not like he's never played the position before; he was an LB in college MOST of the time.

    BTW, what I meant by "you're all wrong" is that no matter what, Emery is gonna shock us all.
