Maualuga looks like an absolute beast. Can't believe how far he slipped. He should be a monster for many years.

feedback was he misses too many tackles

The Pack getting Matthews and the big nose tackle out of BC

Rey is not a 3-down LB at this point, that's the concern. He's not good in pass coverage.

Some of the lack of his skills were masked by having two outstanding LBs on either side of him at USC.

All 3 are good and have 3-down potential, but they got the order of their CURRENT talent level correct. I still think that Detroit should have grabbed him because they have no MLB.

Cushing is an every-down backer.Way faster & almost 3 inches taller.I think both will be solid players.

I follow USC closely, and I would of taken Cushing over the other two.. That dude will be awesome in the NFL.

he may turn out to be the best of the 3. But i'm gonna guess that the people who draft for a living probably know more than us. The fact that they all passed on him once should say something.

character issue i think, but when you turn on the tape...it doesnt lie. this dude is insanely talented.
