    Sio and Kiko  what is this a new cartoon replacing Cecil and Beanie. Sio is a local being from U-Conn and Kiko played his ball at Oregon both project 2nd round to third round grades. Either is a possible fit.Larry Grant seems like a good fit after the draft.

    I would say Thank You! It's about time. None of our LB's can cover. Mayo a little, but that's about it.

    In response to RidingWithTheKingII's comment:

    Probably push Fletcher and to push Tarpinian.  He had Kiko Alonso in from Oregon for a pre draft visit and now this:

    7:15 PM ET By Mike Reiss | ESPNBoston.com The Patriots had veteran linebacker Larry Grant in for a workout at Gillette Stadium.

    The 28-year-old Grant played the last two seasons with the 49ers, appearing in all 16 regular-season games in 2011 and 2012, with three starts. He was a backup on the inside behind Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman. The 6-foot-1, 251-pound Grant, who entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice out of Ohio State, was with the Rams from 2008-2010.

    As for the Patriots' linebacking corps, they have starters Jerod Mayo (weakside), Brandon Spikes (middle) and Dont'a Hightower (strongside) returning in 2013, with Dane Fletcher, who missed the 2012 season with a torn ACL, one of their top backups. Building depth at the position, while also factoring in special teams contributions, figures to be an area of interest for the Patriots in free agency or the draft.

    Patriots linebackers
    Starters: Mayo, Spikes, Hightower
    Backups: Dane Fletcher, Niko Koutouvides, Mike Rivera, Jeff Tarpinian

    Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun first reported news of Grant's workout.


    King, Heavy is the Crown. Less than a week away, DVR is ready in case I nod off on Thursday night and BB trades out of first. Please no surprise long snappers this year.

    Adios

    They need something, our linebackers can play the run, but they can't cover. I'm nowhere near convinced Fletcher is going to come in and all of the sudden be our coverage linebacker - two years ago he looked lost in coverage. The hope would be for Adrian Wilson to cover the tightends, we haven't had a safety able to do that in five years.

    Quite a misleading thread though..."BB looking for coverage linebacker", this guy has little to no evidence of being a coverage linebacker. Special teams coverage? Sure, but not someone that is going to cover tightends or drop back into coverage on third downs.

    Re: BB Looking for Coverage LB

    Oregon's Kiko Alonso, UConn's Sio Moore and Iowa States AJ Klein are (3) kids that would interest me if they're looking to target a potential coverage LB on Day 2... or they could look at a couple Penn State LB's later on Day 3 in Gerald Hodges or Michael Mauti.
