'A Derrick Brooks clone'

At least that’s how one agent said the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking at this Virginia Tech linebacker at the Senior Bowl.

I like the Cato June/Quincy Black combo for the future. Why would we need to spend another 1st day pick on a LB?

very intriguing prospect...think he would be a excellent addition to our ST initially and maybe a replacement for Brooks in the future...

If the defensive draftee is not a DL player and can't play ST, don't think he has a chance.

Kiffin (except for T Jax) doesn't have rookies start. They must play ST.

A Derrick Brooks clone would be a small, fast LB. The Bucs got Q. Black last year in the draft, Heyward too. Plus picked up Cato June in FA to replace Brooks. The BUCS need DT, WR, CB before picking another LB on the first day, IMO.



The BUCS are gonna surprise people this year!

Isn't that what folks where saying about Cooper?  Undersized, fast LB in the mold of Brooks.

Seen this kid play in person about 15 times and he is awesome.  I think this kid is a star on the NFL level.  Nothing like Marquis Cooper.  If he were a little bigger he'd be a first rounder.

I've seen Adibi and he is indeed, a tremendous prospect, IMO.

He's not that undersized at 6-2, 228lbs. I think he will be a better pro than college player. I'm not sure Black will be the future at WLB. I think he maybe more suited for Sam or even a move back to Mike.

Seemed to me the buccs took a shot at LBs last year - and apparently were very happy with the two rookies and the FA signing - I haven't seen or heard anything to the contrary - are they looking still DTG?

I'm not sure they're looking to draft a LB high, but Adibi is a nice prospect either way.

as far as June has said in TC, his spot in Indy's defense was the Sam LB position...so he is at home in this defense...why move him...tackling was supposedly his weakness and playing WILL...well, it seems that would not suit June well...Black is backing up June and Hayward was backing up Brooks this past season, so why not Adibi...IMO...I like the concept of drafting Adibi

Has anyone else heard the rumor that Sabby might be tried out at the WLB?
