I wonder if this is because with the increased emphasis on the passing game and the proliferation of mutant TEs that are too fast for LBs to cover that teams are playing their ILBs less.
It's why I don't see the Texans using a high draft pick on an ILB. I'd rather them get a cheap vet and use a lower pick on someone to backup.
I don't think we see anyone else signed until after the draft. Maybe a minor guy or a returning player.
With 4 picks in the first 95 I would like to see:
OLB or T if they don't think Newton's the guy
With the final 5 picks:
OLB or T
QB/P/FB It would depend on if there is a QB they think can be the guy at some point.
