I think Deion Jones is still available also, and at the Dime Linebacker I do believe Miles Killebrew who I like

Jones is gone to ATL in the 2nd. Killebrew is there so is Houston-Carson, Miller and CB LeShaun Sims. Sims is worth a look IMO. 

 

I would add small school edge prospects Perkins, Brown, Cowser. Ochi, Holmes, and Judon to the OLB list.

 

Walker and Rhodes to ILB. .

Matt Judon and Tyrone Holmes are my dream OLBs tomorrow. Tapper might be good too. James Cowser? Alex McCalister? Ronald Blair would probably be DE in our scheme...

Jones was taken by the Falcons in the second.

All of the above players are good candidates for 4th and 5th rounders, IMO.

 

Cole, and Walden are going to start, with Mathis getting first opportunity at obvious passing situations.  Roster wise, it never really made much sense to use a high pick on a OLB, because somebody who is being paid a lot of money or drafted high would have to spend a lot of time on the bench.  It makes more sense to get some EDGE and SAMs later and have them rotate in and be productive at the stuff they did in college before they develop a more well rounded game.

I like how we lined up those 2 7th round picks because we can assure ourselves at least two talented small school pass rushers there if need be or at least a nice running back. WR is possible too.

We need OLB, have absolutely no depth. Have plenty of ILB's with the addition of Morrison, but really lacking even basic depth at our OLB position

 

Worst case scenario, we bring Werner and Newsome back.

    • These are the kinds of dumb posts you get over at Youtube. I was reading the gameday thread of Cubs and Reds. Cubs fans were enjoying the moment with their posts and a Reds fan said we are in 2nd place and you guys haven't done anything since 2016. I about fell out of my chair here at work. "Haven't done anything since 2016", that is comical. By that logic the Reds haven't done anything since 1990. Cards haven't even won a WS since 2011. The Cubs just won the Division last year. Reds are 1.5 games ahead of the Cubs and we are in sell mode , it isn't like the Reds are 10 games ahead. By the way I like the Reds but some fans in general ruin it. Some people are so jealous over the Cubs being great over the last 6 years that it is comical. Brewers fans can put a zipper on it period until they win a WS, until then they are irrelevant to any kind of greatness discussion. I just ignore their hate because it isn't worth my time, they are the worst  . 
    • I just seen Javy's walk off. Don't poke the bear of a Champion is all I can say - As Homer would say that Garrett character had it coming  
    • I think many understand why Luck retired but many will agree it was just the timing of it. He had everyone believing he was going to play in 2019. He should've just made announcement soon after losing to KC in the playoffs. That would've been before the draft. A simple, I talked it over with my wife and I am just in too much pain play anymore. That would've been good enough for everyone IMO.    One thing too that nobody mentions is he replaced a top 3 QB of all-time and the expectations coming out of college for Luck was, he will be close to what Manning was. So of course a lot of people were upset and disappointed when he stepped away. We expected a SB win from Luck as fans. 
    • I also think the fact he was about to become a dad just made him go you know there is way more to life than football.  He already had some of that before he got to the NFL but I think becoming a father might have pushed him over the edge too.  No one wants to not be able to do things with your kids because of pain.
    • If I confused anyone with this post, I meant they will replay the games and not just have it be a forfeit according to how Acho was talking. I suck and posting links and video but you guys can youtube first take and see it. Thanks.
