    Yeah, we'll see who makes the pro bowl here in a year or 2 and then the guy that fails to do it for the rest of his career.

    Brandon Graham > Lamarr Woodley. And how'd Elwood turn out?

    If the Titans had their 2nd round pick at #47 I bet their draft strategy could have changed and they go Dez or another position and wait until the 2nd round to take the DE. Then they probably get Dunlap or Griffen. Are those two guys really that much of a drop off from Morgan? I don't think so. Athletically as good. Attitude maybe not so good but similar potential IMO. I think Griffen might have been pretty good in our system with Wash coaching him. Dunap as well.

    I actually think he'll be pretty good. Watchin him in the Senior Bowl game and some of the practices, he's an absolute monster, looks like the Tasmanian devil out there and I really think he could be great.

    He was great while being a 1 man defense for the past season. Any defense Michigan had, he was the guy. He'll be happy to have some help in the NFL.

    And Michigan will be even more pathetic on defense now that he is gone.

    My point exactly lil DE's who play in 4-3s get injured pretty fast even Frenny.And Graham is not frenny his a 3rd down DE at best.

    Washburn might be the best DL coach in the league at least top 5 but he is not a miracle worker. We have had players who underperformed based on talent. Odom and Starks are 2 examples. Odom had 8 sacks for the Bengals last year.

    Morgan will be a better NFL player than Graham. Dunlap probably has more talent than any of em, but he's got so many character issues it's not even funny.
