Matt Mosley thinks Carpenter could be the pick

New, comments

OK, you know this got me excited. I was reading the Matt Mosley article today and came across these paragraphs.

So let me give you a hot name to think about: Bobby Carpenter, the other linebacker from Ohio State. He may have played in the shadow of A.J. Hawk, but this guy appears to be gaining steam.

Carpenter has been called the best blitzing linebacker in the draft, and he might fit in well opposite DeMarcus Ware. He's a versatile player who can play with his hand on the ground and also drop back in coverage. I've also heard that Cleveland and New England are taking a long look at Carpenter.

Let me just say that this is the name I'm starting to hear quite a bit from people who are in the know. Unless something crazy happens, the Cowboys appear set on taking a defensive player.

Versatile and one of the best blitzing LB'ers in the draft. Sweet.
