[QUOTE]In Response to Re: herzlich : Are you insane? BC runs a 4-3 Cover-3 base. HTF would an ILB tally sacks? Yeesh. Herlizch had awesome production over his career, and if he is trending back towards the palyer we saw in 2008 he would be an incredible deal in the 4th round: Season Team TOT SOL AST TFL SK FF INT BK TD 314 218 96 31½ 5 7 12 0 2 2006 Boston College 42 32 10 5 1 1 1 0 0 2007 Boston College 97 55 42 12 1½ 2 1 0 0 2008 Boston College 110 81 29 11 2½ 2 6 0 2 2010 Boston College 65 50 15 3½ 0 2 4 0 0 Mark me words: this kid is a baller, and will make an impact in the NFL.

God Bless you USMCM1! Last week, I spent an hour on various BC web-sites and ACC sites, just trying to figure out BC's base Defensive scheme...and came up with zilcho.
THIS outta the way, the cool thing about Herzlich...? This guy packs on only about 5 or 10 lbs more to his 6'4 frame...and he's NE's SOLB fit for a decade. And the cool thing about him? He's got a complete game: This means, NO big flaws, in lieu of some 1 single other super-trait... This means, as Herzlich is learning and getting bigger, stronger, faster, and healthier...He CAN sub in ANY-where at the 4 LB spots=ANY of them (not many people who can do this, ya know). And even Though, Herzlich when he gets his total game back (and he Will), and can secure Vrabel's SOLB spot for 8 rock-steady years, again-Herzlich CAN be anywhere: Ya know...? The word "Versatility" (probably 1 of Belichick's FAVORITE words)...BB does NOT like setting his D's (or the offense either)- up on what HIS players can do, and can ONLY do (best)...Bill Belichick wants his players to be TOTALLY versatile, so he can set his players around His Defense's themselves...not vice-versa (I've talked about this: Doing it this way (versatile players around defenses, NOT defensive looks subject to his own players limited singular skill-set <no matter how good />...THIS way, you are malleable to attack and exploit Your Opponent's Biggest Weakness(es), and not your opponent attacking your own player's, and thus limited-defensive-scheme limitations)...
Herzlich in Round 2...trust me.
