Out of those you listed, gotta go with Burfict.
Maualuga=bad
Te'o=risky
Te'o's "gf" = not real.

Maybe should have included someone like Alec Ogletree or Kevin Minter.

Te'o dated an imaginary girl and was tackling air against Alabama. He's got Bengals DNA!

Maualuga got arrested while driving a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire...that's pretty impressive too:

Obviously this isn't a serious thread, but I will still give a serious answer.

I am one who feels that we need a good coverage MLB. Not only a run stopper. So I think you would have to go with a draft pick. All I keep reading about Teo is his ability to cover and to cover TEs. He isn't as good as Luke Kuechly against the pass but he isn't exactly terrible either and he is one of the best in this draft class.

Now with this weird story surfacing and a poor performance in the BCS game, some are questioning him as an option.

Burfict was pretty good as a WILL backer but showed that his coverage skills either need to be developed or they aren't as good as one would want. He also says that he prefers the outside position. I think Burfict could be a great player but as a SAM backer.

Do I want Te'o? It is a toss up. If he brings his coverage skills here and leaves the drama at ND then YES. If he brings the play that he brought in the BCS game and the headache of ND with him then NO.

Some other good candidates for the position are: Alec Olgetree and Kevin Minter. Both of these guys have some concerns as well.

I personally feel that the whole LBer position needs to be revamped. I would go Te'o, Olgetree or Minter in the 1st round (if I didn't want Barret Jones at C), and get a guy like Khaseem Greene or Gerald Hodges in the late 2nd or 3rd rounds. My starters (if they proved in the camps and preseason) would be.

SAM- Burfict (Lawson as backup)
MIKE- Te'o, Olgetree or Minter (Maualuga as back up)
WILL- Greene or Hodges (Howard as back up)

Hard to say, we haven't seen any of these choices play MLB at the NFL level. For threads sake I would like to see Burfict in the middle, if Te'o is available later in the draft tgen we should pick him up.

The truth is, I am actually this Lenny Kookoo person. It's an online alias I've been using for years to take morons for millions. Believe you me, Monty Tau was not the first.

I voted for Rey guessing i'd be the only one that voted for him.

Turns out I was right.

I say none of the above.

I'd like Ogletree, but since that is not an option, I'll go with Burfict.

No to Te'o. Even before this hoax.

Honestly, I'd rather have Rey Maualuga back rather than draft Te'o.

Terrible choices.


I like the diea of drafting a true MIKE and leaving Burfict at WILL. Not every weakside lionebacker will make stops and plays like Vontaze does. I would prefer for the MLB to be able to cover a TE better, so I would support drafting both a new SAM and a new MIKE. This leaves Vontaze on nthe weak side and prevents bouncing him around and having to learn position after position.

Of course he does give the Bengals options, but I was listing what I thought was the ideal scenario.

Can't argue with this at all. I believe that we should be looking at better coverage LBers. Te'o is one of them, Ogletree has the potential. Yet guys like Greene and/or Hodges look very promising and would be there in rounds 3 or 4.

Pretty sure he has played MLB before. More than likely Thomas Howard is going to be back with the team next season so what do you suggest doing with him? Howard would be our best option at WLB as he is the best coverage LB we have.

...pre injury. Don't get me wrong, I want him back too, but who knows if he'll be the same player.

Did we not learn a lesson with Maualuga? Looked good at OLB, looks terrible at MLB. Leave Burfict outside.

And I pick go with the guy with the fake cyber girlfriend

But most WLB can actually be useful in coverage.
