As far as the rest of Curry's game, he looks great. Good tackling, coverage, skill/talent, reaction. All good.
    Speed can be improved, if that is really a problem at all. Besides, he is a "gamer" for sure and that is what we need.

The latter is the main reason I consider him a better fit for the Chiefs.

    Maualuga is going to be a very good linebacker in the NFL. I'm just not so sure he'll be an every down LB, whereas I think Curry will be.
    You cannot teach someone to have that killer instinct, you either do or dont. The rest of the stuff (except for maybe speed) SHOULD be improved with a good Defensive coaching staff (which we havent had for awhile) or some veteran mentorship.

    That being said, do you want the player that has great skills right now ... or the player that has the great drive and attitude and will become a great player in a year or two. Its a tough decision.

    Could happen. Curry, Raji, Monroe, Smith might also go 3rd. OL is usually safe, low-risk pick and this year the safe pick happens to be an area of need, so I think we go ol 1st pick.

    Pioli and Bilicheck built the Patriots from the inside out. I would expect him to solidfy the lines with the 3rd round pick, since it is much harder to find good Offensive lineman.

    Historically, the Patriots drafted Oline and d-line and then signed their Line backers through Free agency or later in the draft.

    I haven't seen one draft prediction that has him going in the top ten. Most have him in the 13-16 range. Right where he should be in my opinion.

    If the Chiefs are to draft a LB at the #3 spot he needs to develop into an elite athlete in the molds of R.Lewis, B.Urlacher, otherwise he'll be considered only adequate or a bust. Curry, Maualuga and Laurinaitis all could be considered but fit better as a mid-1st to early-2nd round picks. Unless we pick up leadership through free-agency my main quality I would choose to separate these three would be their leadership potential, something we are sorely lacking on D.

    There are a few free agents worth looking at. I know Jonathan Vilma is a name I like to throw at people. He is slightly smaller for a middle linebacker but plays great. He is a sure tackler, great in pass coverage, and has great speed for a linebacker. I think the Chiefs could bring him in and he could become the leader of this defense.

    I was hoping that Terrell Suggs would become a free agent, but it looks like he wants to return to Baltimore. Oh well. He would have been a good motivational leader, plus, the guy has a high motor.

    The problem with this response is that you mentioned Maualuga and Laurinaitis in the same sentence as Curry. I will say it again. I dont think you understand! Curry is the second best all around player in this draft the other linebackers are just some good linebackers.

    Curry is a beast. He is good and very well worth the #3 pick if we keep it. He has great size and strength. He has that killer LB instinct. He is a leader and will be a very good player whoever he goes too.

    I just want to know what defensive scheme we will be running next year. He is not much for defending the pass.

    Yes. He is worth it. But will we keep the #3 pick? Stay tuned...lol
