Future Rams Linebackers?

SBN brother site, Bleeding Green Nation (Eagles), has an in depth look at two prospects that the Rams (or at least our fans) have expressed interest in for this year's draft.

Patrick Willis, ILB, Ole Miss

Highlight from the Willis analysis:

On the field, one of the most intense ballplayers I've seen in my 30+ years of watching Ole Miss football. Good speed and vision on the field and has a knack for finding the ball. A sure tackler, if he gets his hands on you, he's bringing you down. He may need a little work on his drops in pass defense, but he did have a couple of int's and several pass break-ups in his career.

Paul Posluszny, OLB, Penn State

Here's a highlight from the Posluszny analysis:

He definitely plays the run better than anyone I've ever seen. He's a student of the game and anticipates the play meeting it head on. Penn State mostly plays zone defense, so that's what he did in college. In the few times he was put in a man-to-man situation with a tight end or running back he got beat pretty badly.
