Agreed. The LBs are key to the 3-4 defense. OLBs in the 3-4 get alot of attention in free agency due to their higher sack numbers, but they'll garner even more attention as more and more teams switch to the 3-4 as a base or mix it in with their base 4-3. OLBs with 3-4 experience will come at a premium price in free agency. If we can pick up a young ILB in the draft that will improve our LB corp as a whole then I say go for it. As far as Coleman goes I feel that he'll resign with the Texans come seasons end. Even if it comes at the price of paying him CB kind of money.
