Our Starting Mlb...

With the recent signings of Durant and Reed, does our MLB now become only a 2 down run stopping necessity?

It appears that both these guys have been touted as good coverage guys, so maybe both of them make up our nickel package.

Worrilow has never been a strength in pass coverage.

If we decide to draft one to replace Worrilow, I could see Denzel Perryman being a fit.

I would love to have Perryman. He plays the position the way I like to see it played. I hope we can get him. But not at the expense of Gurley.

Yes please:

Kendricks in the 2nd

Anthony or Dawson in the 3rd

Perryman in the 4th

I'd just let the chips fall as they may and see if one of these guys is available. If not, we can live with Worrilow for a season... maybe target Bobby Wagner in FA next offseason.

perryman in the 4th? Man Oh Man Lol

All those players will be long gone by your projected picks......

If Worrilow is our starting MLB, we have a problem. He's a reserve player. We need a starter who can lead a defense. Hopefully we find someone in the draft, or move Reed inside.

I dunno about that.

The thing to like about PW is the guy is always in on the play or nearby.

Also; this will be his third season and is typically the year that players come

into their own in the NFL.

With that said, it will all come down to coaching, and our Defensive Coaching Staff

is quite impressive to say the least.

Nah Worrilow will start at Mike. His motor is super high and his pursuit is relentless. He's also good in getting up the middle on blitzes. If he didn't suck at coverage wed have a **** good ILB in paul

Worrilow is only "relentless" in pursuit because he's constantly chasing people... He's nothing but OK depth on any other team in the entire league.

@Karst: Worrilow has terrible coverage skills and that's one thing you don't want your starting MLB to struggle with, obviously along with tackling. Worrilow has plenty of tackling stats, but very rarely does he make an impact play, and too often he looks lost in coverage.

Does a MLB with good coverage skills exist in the NFL ?

The Ideal red zone match up is to isolate the MLB in coverage.

Those percentages are ugly in favor of the offense.

But I agree that the guy has to defend, and the guy was a UDA who

out hustled everybody on our sad sack of a defense.

I hope he makes the cut.

Worrilow haters are excited! We just brought in two

LB'rs whose combined tackles are about 50 less than

Worrilow made by himself. If we are looking to replace

55 we are barking up the wrong tree. He is a player.

I think Worrilow can execute what ever he is coached

to do. He works hard and has the physical tools to perform.

We were in a very weird defense last year and I think

he played his position as it was designed.

he wasn't just thrown into coverage last year. He was coached to do it and yet failed miserably

Only Quinn knows for certain, but I'd say it's a pretty safe bet to assume Worrilow will be our starting MLB this year. Quinn will see what he can get out of him and upgrade next year if neccessary. We've gotta consider the high amount of roster holes we have to fill this year. There are far worse holes than at MLB now.

In fact, after we draft a pass rusher at #8, I wont be surprised at all if our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th round picks are all some combination of RB, WR, TE, or OL: in other words, all on offense.

He has been criticized for dropping too deep and too shallow.

We don't really know what the heck they were trying to do with

that defense last year. I do know we only had two LB's on the

the field. Most succesful defenses employ 3 or 4. Looking at that

mathematically it would tend to narrow the coverage area.
