The Linebackers

This group could turn out to be one of if not the best in the league for many years to come.  You have great size: Bradley 6'4", Gocong 6'3", and Gaither 6'2" and they are all pretty athletic and quick.  Gaither is the guy whose going to get a ton of tackles and is moving back to the position he played in college, Bradley i think could turn out to be a great steal in the 3rd round if tht last game and his proformance on special teams were any indication of what he can be.  Gocong could be the most interesting however.  He now has a good grasp on the defense that as we all no is very complicated.  And Jim Johnson should be able to use him as a great tweener at DE and LB.  He could be the Eagles best linebacker.  Its not just the starter though.  Akeem Jordan should get on the field and contribute this year.  Rocky Boiman can lead this group and should be able to play, he started 8 games for the colts last year.  And the other guy to watch is Joe Mays.  Mays I think will make the team because of his special teams ability.  You will probably have to wait a few years to see him but he could provide a guy who can come in and just destroy one of those losers on Dallas.  Even look oh lets say 3 years from now.  Bradley should be a top linebacker and anchor the defense, his backup, Joe Mays, should develop into a feared hitter that can play against the run.  Gaither will probably be a guy who is always good enough to make the pro bowl but always gets snubbed, behind him is Jordan who could be a solid back up.  Then the pass rushers.  Gocong could develop into something like Jason Taylor.  He probably won't be as good but the style of play will be similar.  I'm just guessing Studebaker he may be a total bust but he could be on the roster and be a situaitonal pass rushing LB.  The future looks great for this group of Eagles.
