Its still early, but our OLBs seem to be our glaring weakness on D moving forward.
With Cush back, the signing of Mays, Sharpton healthy, Joseph 100%, Ed Reed, Swearinger, flashes of upgrade from Mitchell... We have the makings of a nasty D health considered. But we really need an outside pass rush to become truly dominant imo. Who is going to step it up at OLB this year?
Reed - I have little faith in him as more than a high motor back up special teams player at the moment. Looked average again on Friday.
Mercilus - The dude had some sacks in his rookie campaign. But they seemed to all be effort sacks much in the mold of Reed.
T Williams - I really liked this pick but I cant find a single positive review thus far.
Montgomery - Some loved this pick, but I didnt get it. Hoping I was wrong. Dude needs to get over the injury/conditioning cloud that seems to be hovering over him early on. This guy my have the most upside.
Braman - Love the guy, but if he doesnt surface soon not sure if he ever will.
Jefferson - Another Brayman in the making? Chicken legs concern me, but love his explosiveness.
I think we are all going to be keeping a close eye on this crew. Right now, I see a whole lot of average at best. The most important thing to me is for Whitney to prove himself a first round pick. I need at least flashes, like yesterday.
