Pretty good tackler I would say!

the link doesn't work? Aww sh*t

Ok no problem man. Sorry about that man. I try.

*Just go under google(web), and type in chad greenway video player profile.

*Click under that web site you see in the link provided, and there is a video profile of him there.

Yea, I found the video.

I've been watching Greenway play for the Hawks for years, so I've seen what he can do. He's a stud. I know we don't need a LB very bad, but if we drafted him I'd have his authentic jersey in a heartbeat.

So, What do you think of the people who are rating DeMeco Ryans ahead of him?

So, What do you think of the people who are rating DeMeco Ryans ahead of him?I think Greenway's stock fell this year because Iowa's D-line hampered his ability to play freely. Some team is going to make a mistake if they draft Ryans ahead of Greenway.

Ryans is a good LB (he looked solid tonight), but i don't feel he's a well rounded as Greenway.

Those reports make Greenway sound like the athletic freak and Ryans sound like the hardnosed "football player".That's probably pretty accurate. IMO, Greenway is more athletic, and isn't quite the bruiser that Ryans is. Although he still can hit.

I think both guys will be good NFL LBs, and could be great if they are paired with the right system.

The only things I dont like from what I hear in Greenways game is, aggressive(over-pursue), and undisciplined.

*Those 2 things are a problem with the Chiefs defense. don't get me wrong though, the guy is a stud.

Well in fairness, almost every college player that posseses elite end speed for their position overpursues.

The link above is missing the "K" in "hawkeye". The text in the post shows the k, but the link itself doesn't have it.

A simple edit will fix the link.

Actually, it's missing a bit more than just the K. But in any case, the problem is the link portion doesn't match the text portion and is screwed up.

Is it me, or does he look more like an NFL safety than a LB.

I don't think that's accurate at all.

Greenway is a "football player".

He's your prototypical motor guy and he's one of the smartest guys you'll ever see on a football field.

I don't think he's athletically "gifted" by any means, but for a guy his size he has pretty good wheels.

What really puts the guy over the top, though, is his mind. He always knows where to be at the right time...

I also don't consider him a hitter in the same manner Demeco Ryans is. He can hit, but he's not like an Abdul Hodge or Bob Sanders in that department.

This year, he is. He's not as athletic as DJ or guys like that.

He's not overly fast either, he's just a unique combination of tall, strong, and everything else.

But it's his smarts that set him apart. He has tremendous instincts for the position, and as a former QB, he knows how to break down plays.

Abdul Hodge probably went from 2nd round to 5th round when he measured in at 5'10 instead of the 6'1 everyone thought he was.

Before last years draft, Kiper said he thought Greenway was a better prospect than DJ, I don't know if he still thinks that but he said it last year.

Maybe, maybe not. Bell likely won't return, and Key Fox is coming off of a blown knee.

I guess it depends on what we do in free agency (OT,WR, DL...)

I don't think so. His play outweighs any size deficencies. He may not go in the 2nd, but there's no way in hell he gets to the 5th.

Lofa Tatupu went middle 2nd last year and he's only 5' 11"

He can cover, which is good because Bell can't cover if his life depended on it.

And Greenway is physical, tough. Plays with heart.....He plays with his will.

That pick looks great now......but it got lambasted on draft day. Tatupu was thought of as a 4th-5th round pick going into the draft.

And so your point is? 1) Iggy the draft experts? or 2) Follow them and pick someone else? Cripes, how many times have the Chiefs reached with no results: Freeman, Siavii (yes, I know the list goes on...down to Blacklidge...I'm trying to keep it recent.)?

I think draft projections are generally good.....if you can get a guy in the 4th round even if he's good, why reach 2 rounds higher? Then you have a shot at an extra good player.

The Chiefs problem with blowing picks is they reach for players. Siavii was thought of as a 5th rounder. Most of the Chiefs blown picks are from reaching or trying to fill a need so bad they put on the blinders and don't take the best player available.

I'll take guys with high motors on my team anyday over talent anyday of the week. As long as they're smart intellegent football players with a punch'em in the mouth attitude, thats better than talent imo.

Like Herm Edwards said....."Its about the will man!"....."Its not about the skill, Its about the will!" "You play with your will!"

That's fine when you're comparing guys who have 1st round talent like Chad Greenway. But saying you'd take the high motor guys who lack talent over the really talented players isn't that wise. I bet you'd take Sammy Knight over Sean Taylor right..........

It's not good to have a bunch of lazy guys but it's not good to have no talent either.

I'll take Rodney Harrison over Sean Taylor.

Rodney is physical, tough son of a gun, makes plays, intellegent guy, stays out of trouble, yeah he's a little bit dirty(but I like dirty), he plays with heart man.

Aint the most skillful guy, but I will say, when that guy is healthy, he is easily one of the top 5 safeties in the league.

Rodney Harrison wasn't always what he is now. He's old now so of course he isn't as fast. He also gets the benefit of playing with Eugene Wilson who's one of the best free safeties in the league.

The point I was trying to make is you can't have 11 guys be like that. If both of the Pat's safeties were Rodney Harrison they'd get beat deep alot.

Also for every hard playing blue collar guy out there playing hard and doing well. There are 5 of them struggling to make rosters because they just aren't good enough.

Well, Harrison is a strong safety, he is not expected nor asked to cover guys deep. I agree with you that, yes if both Pats safeties were like Harrison they'd get beat deep.

But, every player has a role man. For what Harrison does, hes awesome.
