The 2011 Defense Market
Saturday, June 04, 2011


 Barrett Ruud, linebacker

Scouting Report: Incredibly productive, Ruud has ranked fourth, second, and 18th in the league in tackles over the past three seasons. Unfortunately, Ruud's tackle numbers don't translate to stout defense, as the Bucs have ranked 19th, 32nd, and 28th against the run. Ruud is a gifted athlete with sideline-to-sideline range, but the majority of his tackles occur downfield. He is a three-down linebacker with cover skills. It's possible that Ruud's best position would be on the weak side, where he could worry less about run plugging and just let his athleticism take over.

Availability: Ruud, 28, is an unrestricted free agent and available to the highest bidder. While Raheem Morris has toed the company line by saying the Bucs want Ruud back, the team's actions speak louder than their words; they drafted middle linebacker of the future Mason Foster with the 84th overall pick. Ruud is likely to land elsewhere, and the Jaguars make sense as a linebacker-needy team that could use a reliable young tackler in the middle or on the weak side.

Prediction: Jaguars on a five-year, $34 million contract.

He's only 28 years old?   That's PRIME!

"Prediction: Jaguars on a five-year, $34 million contract."

Smells like a 4th round comp. pick. Please take him.

I would love to see Ruud leave the Bucs.   It would hasten Heemy's departure.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

And if he makes the tackles sooner, like he is supposed too, no first down yardage.

How can anyone blame one player for the run defense, last time i check 11 players played on defense not one.

True Dat, but when the dude is showing up in vid after vid, making tackles 5 -10 yards downfield it strikes me as something is wrong with his game.  How about a mauler that moves FORWARD instead of being the best LB in the league at backpedaling.

Ruud 5 years  34 mil

Aso 5 years   70 mil.


So if they wave goodbye to Barrett you have come up with half of ASO's salary already.
