Round 3, Selection 18 (From Detroit) Tyrone McKenzie, OLB, South Florida
Round 4, Selection 12 Victor Harris, CB Virginia Tech
Round 4, Selection 22 (From Minnesota) Emanuel Cook SS South Carolina
Round 5, Selection 16 Roy Miller, Texas OR Vance Walker, Georgia Tech
Round 6, Selection 15 Greg Isdaner - West Virginia
Round 7, Selection 14 Kaluka Maivia - USC
I know some will say that Unger wont be there in round 2 but Im banking on teams taking bigger more physical OL early leaving the versitle fleet footed Unger who is better suited for a ZB scheme still there at our pick.
I know that 3 LB's seems like overkill considering we just signed June and Davis in FA but neither are legitamate long term answers IMO. With an aggressive gap shooting front four we are going to have to have very aggressive physical LB's that are capable of making plays all over the feild. This physical style will no doubt lead to injuries so having solid depth will be paramount.
In fact I would say that LB is going to be the most important position on defense if we really are going to be a pressure defense.
If we hadn't signed June I think this would be an ideal draft for us. With his signing i think 3 LBs is too much. I'd rather take Caldwell OC, Alabama with our second third round pick. With that we'd have the OL topped off.
