    LB Reggie Ragland *****

    Returning from injury and a talented player. Where does he fit as we return to a 4-3 defense? I thought he was supposed to be a 3-4 guy. Best fit? Thoughts?

    Well--one thing that I think will probably happen is that no RB will get 200 yrds on us this year if Reggie rehabbed properly and stayed in shape--he is a tackling machine--good in zone coverage and a little weak on man coverage--safeties will need to play with that in mind.
    Draft wish list:
    1-WR Corey Davis Western Michigan--pick 5 Titans
    2-S Obi Melifonwu Connecticut--2nd round--pick 56 Raiders
    3-CB Cordrea Tankersley Clemson--3rd round--pick 97 Dolphins
    5-LB Connor Harris Lindenwood--undrafted--picked up by Jets
    5-OL Conor McDermott UCLA--6th round--pick 211 Patriots-claimed off waivers by Bills
    6-QB Chad Kelly Ole Miss--Mr irrelevant--Broncos

    How nice. More male genitalia obsession. You have some issues it would appear. Why do you reference male repreductive parts in every post? Please avoid me from now on. Thanks in advance!

    He best fits as an ILB in a 34. In a 43 he should be able to play the Mike. If he doesn't beat out Brown as the Mike, he should be better than the trash we currently have at OLB. But he is not an ideal fit. We will probably have the worst LB unit in the league this year.

    He mentioned that he was trying to get down to 245 pounds in a recent interview, which should help his mobility.

    I don't see why he doesn't fit well as mlb in a 4-3. He was one of the best players in college football 2 years ago.

    Personally I'm more excited about him than I am about any other young guy on this team.

    Great in depth write up and video of Ragland breaking down video of himself on mmqb.

    He obviously studies film and has the attitude of a lb, which this defense needs. He might not be ideal for covering a TE 1-on-1 but he understands his role and will sit in a zone and crush a wr coming through the middle.


    He also has a lot of experience as a pass rusher, which could come in handy.

    "He also says that his favorite all-time player is Ray Lewis. And his current favorite is Luke Kuechly. Indeed, not bad professionals for a budding inside linebacker to emulate."

    Sure, the defense will have to cover up for some of his mobility issues but I've loved the guy since watching him at Alabama and can't wait to see him in a Bills uniform.
