Ohio State linebacker and emotional leader Brian Rolle has a new home. The Philadelphia Eagles selected Rolle with the 28th pick in the 6th round, the 193rd overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. 

Rolle joins former Buckeye Kurt Coleman in the City of Brotherly Love and looks to compete with Moises Foukou and Akeem Jordan at Will or with Jamar Chaney and Omar Gaither at Mike for the NFC East champions. On a team long known for their stout defenses, Rolle should have every bit the opportunity to make an impact immediately on special teams and down the road for a team that should continue to be in the mix amongst the NFC's best.

Seems like a steal for the Eagles in the 6th round.  Nice pick.

Does anybody think Justin Boren will get drafted?

Meh, maybe?  I didn't think he was very good this past year.  I also have no authority to judge football players' abilities, however.

 

I just want to know where the hell is dane?

Dane has to end up in the right system.  Colts, Bears, Patriots, Saints or Packers.

Steve Largent was a 4th round pick.  I had thought that was where Sanzenbacher would go.  I'd know that I'd pick Sanzebacher.  I'd be amazed if he didn't get picked up.

I don't think he will.  He didn't have a spectacular workout and some scouts said he looked too pudgy and soft.
