    We are fortunate to have a higher pick than Indy and Cleveland as they would select white in the first round IMO. Collins is unlikely to be franchised by the Giants. Same with Mosley. Two big time LB's in FA and where they land will likely determine the path we take in the draft. I'd take Metcalf at 10 if White is off the board.

    Collins to Indy and Mosley to Denver or Cleveland. Surely you would still steer clear of the Raiders, regardless of the $$$ on offer?

    to get 2 very good prospects at ILB. I agree that we have other needs but Devin White looks like the best player to me.

    I know they will meet with all kinds of 1st round talent while in Indy but his ties to great LBs everywhere hes been makes this one seem more serious to me
    Fangio being a LB guy and then having Von Miller, Bradley Chubb and possibly Devin White to work with? Holy smokes.

    Not a guarantee of anything, I get the concerns brought up in this thread. We also have to address the future at QB. Flip a second this year and pick up an extra 1st next year? That'll give us ammo for a franchise QB. Either way, should be fun to see.

    I am a Michigan fan as well as a Broncos fan. What does White do better then Bush? I personally want Devin Bush in a trade back. One other intersesting fact is Vic was on Harbaughs staff in SF. So I am sure he knows exactly what he would be getting.

    better length and he sheds blockers better. i'd rated bush as a better tackler.

    Thank you for the insight. I read that Bush was a better tackler as well. I guess I don't see after the combine a huge difference between the two. One comparison I read said White had higher ceiling as he is just learning the position. While Bush had the higher floor. Either way I hope Denver goes Defense with first pick, too much high end talent.

    Imagine being an ILB in the upcoming draft knowing you have Miller, Chubb and Fangio to work with? You'd be foaming at the mouth to go to the Broncos!

    if white goes top 5. bush may end up in the 10-15. Fangio has worked with smaller Lbers and succeeded with them AKa Sam Mills. he also values tackling so i wouldn't rule out bush at all. plus Bush's tape is really good i feel. White is still a work in progess and a bit of a work out warrior. Bush actually looked really good and was a natural leader at Michigan. i am not sure i can say the same with White.

    I don't think White will be a bust, although there is always a possibility. I think there is a legitimate chance he will be average or below average. If we pick an ILB at #10 we need him to be a perennial pro bowler. I would take almost any other position before ILB given our needs across the board. I think we could use an upgrade at almost every position (Edge rusher an obvious exception).
    Brett Kollman also thought Brock Osweiler was going to be a franchise QB with the Texans, so there's that for his "in-depth" analysis. He makes a lot of observations, but how relevant they are to the overall picture hasn't been proven.

    Weaknesses

    Instincts are very average
    Can be fooled by key fakes and misdirection
    Coaxed out of position two different times by the same run play versus Alabama
    Diagnosis can run behind
    Too many false steps in initial movement
    Gets caught behind climbing linemen and doesn't always fight to disengage
    Not a natural knee-bender in space
    Running backs consistently finish under his pads
    Take-on technique needs plenty of work
    Uses shoulder challenges with hands as an afterthought
    Misses tackles when footwork and scrape balance get too loose
    Hard flows to sideline lack leverage and patience
    Relatively unchallenged as a coverage option

    Devin White is still learning to play LB, you have to remember he was a RB coming to college. He still reads plays like a RB and thatís where a lot of his weaknesses come from

    Well, crap. After that speed in the 40 at the combine I'm worried that he wo't be there at #10. And it's not like I've got a draft crush on the guy. I just thought he'd be good value at our pick.
