    Manny Lawson

    Just ran a 4.41 forty.. Not official..

    I think with that he has solidified himself as a first rounder.

    Mario Williams ran a 4.76.

    Re: Manny Lawson

    I'm hesitant about getting a guy that's strictly a 3-4 guy. Because if you get Lawson, I think you're backing yourself into a wall about what you're going to play. I'd prefer to get an OLB that could do either 4-3 or 3-4. But I think Lawson could very easily go to Cleveland now. That's incredible speed, and they need a rush LB in that system.

    Why not draft Lawson and convert him to a 4-3 LB. Thats faster than alot of LBs maybe outside LB beside Pisa? Then Grabbing Hodge in the first? Pisa Hodge Lawson

    That doesnt sound too bad at all if Lawson can show he would be a good strong side LB in a 4-3 and he would be a very good OLB in a 3-4,I would love to get him,and Hodge in the second you cant argue with that at all

    Yea. I mean he has to be strong enough. I'm just trying to find out how many reps he did.

    I would be surprised if the Rams grabbed two LBs in a row. As for converting Lawson to a 4-3 LB, I'm not sure how successful it would be. He might do okay, but he would thrive in the 3-4. There's no reason to try and take a guy out of his element right there, and if we're running both, I'd rather find a guy who is capable at both positions.

    Also he can play for Little when tired or retired.

    Really not confident in that either. He weighed in at 241. I'd like to see what he did in the bench, but as a down lineman, he'd likely not be much more than a situation pass rusher like Robert Mathis. Not exactly what you want out of a first round pick.

    Re: Manny Lawson

    I honestly think he can play OLB in a 4-3

    I think there's a chance he could, but it'd be a waste of his talents.

    Plus Haslett said were running a 4-3, 3-4 D mixed up. He is very atheletic nd maybe we could put him in as an emergency safety with his speed!
