Agreed.

There are not many good OLB that will hit free agency this year, I believe. I don't think there is going to be any help to the defense there.

There are a fair amount of MLB/ILB that might hit the open market and we might be able to sign one to play alongside either a rookie draft pick or a combo of Jackson/Morrison.

However, there are a fair amount of D-Line guys that are going to hit the market and a pretty fair number of Safeties and CBs.

Even though our biggest need is LBs, I think that the free agency class will shape up to be more beneficial to D-line and Secondary than LBs. We will probably have to devote our draft class heavily to the LB corps to get better there.

Cheers,
