I haven’t really been keeping up with the mock drafts but this one is sparking a bit of controversy because of this pick:
15. New York Giants
Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
The Giants need linebacker help and Weatherspoon is a guy with nearly 400 tackles in college who runs 4.6 in the 40. He can call a defense and play middle or weakside linebacker. (Previous pick: Sergio Kindle)
I know some people who say Weatherspoon is too small to play MLB. Personally I still remember Jonathan Vilma going to the Jets and winning rookie of the year at MLB. I think he was 230 pounds. Weatherspoon is listed at 6’1″ and 240 lbs. That may be high but still seems funny to say he’s too small.
