I have secondary as a significantly higher need than ILB .... but would like to see an upgrade next to Cushing. Maybe a hybrid SS/ILB type there. Dont ask me to name one ..... just a thought that crossed my mind as the league is more and more pass oriented.


An observation related to the lack of cover ability from the ILB's - As the season went on , we saw Barwin in coverage quite a bit on both RB's and TE's.
If, to start the draft, we went...

1 - Matt Elam - S, Florida
2 - DeAndre Hopkins - WR, Clemson
3 - Gerald Hodges - ILB, Penn State
3a - Kyle Long - OT, Oregon

I'd be a happy man.
