Default Do we really need to draft ILB?

I posted this here because its about Texans, not about "future stars of the NFL".. but I understand if ya move it. on to the post.



Well on a whim, since ive seen so many people mention us drafting at ILB, I decided to check on the average age of LBs in the NFL. It was harder to find than I thought.. and I dont have a concrete answer.. but as far as i can tell.. we are not suffering from old age at ILB.

Sharper has been in the NFL for 8 years, Foreman for 6. Ray Lewis, the most dominating LB in the league has been playing for 9 years, and I think it is safe to say he wont be retiring too quickly. Junior Seau has been playing for 15! years.

So then.. I would say we have AT LEAST 3 more years of Sharper, and PLENTY of time with Foreman.

Alot of people also talk about replacing Foreman.. well the guy is WELL above average and seems to be getting better every year. I thought he was more of a vet than than that.. but he has only been playing 6 years and honestly he could still improve even more. Currently he is ranked just a little bit above Sharper. I know.. yall all say that the difference isnt in statistics, but in how much more sharper seems to dominate. Well.. you cant have an all-star playmaker at every position, and Foreman is honestly on the verge of making that step into the "all-star" spotlight. He is growing on me more and more as I watch him play. he is a quality ILB.

I say forget about ILB.. if we want to draft for depth.. do it on the second day of the draft. Our ILBs are just fine as they are and we have more important needs right now.
