What you're not taking into consideration is that NFL teams will look at college OLBs and project them to ILB. Two that Vinny mentioned (Bowman and Sean Lee) played OLB at Penn State. Connor played both positions at Penn State. In fact, there is a OLB from Penn State in this draft, Gerald Hodges, that might project inside in the Texans defense. So while the draft gurus may see this year's ILB crop as thin, NFL teams may be looking at players the gurus aren't considering.
