Default LB problem

I was wondering after reading a few threads on this board, everyone is worried about the d line. But what about the LB corps? The only health starter is Greenwood. He will most likely be the weak side LB, while Wong who had a ACL injury last year is projected to be the MLB. So who will be the strong side LB? Orr is undersized and Peek could, but would be a better DE. This leaves either the draft or free agency. And last time I checked there weren't many good LBs left. So does anyone have any idea on what the team will do? I mean there will be some good LBs left in the 2nd round when we pick.

Depth Chart (LB)

Outside LB: Greenwood
Wong
Orr
Middle LB:Polk
Pierce

We need to get Hodge or Schlegel (Ohio State) in draft.

Hodge or DQ wouldn't piss me off. Wong had two knee surgeries since October (torn patella tendon and ACL). He's less than 3 months into his ACL rehab and I would be very surprised if he was ready to go by Sept - and then at what speed. Polk is a FA. Orr can play some outside. Basically, we suck at LB.

i think Wong will be SOLB but even if he is MLB- the draft is loaded with OLB's so i wouldnt worry

I think Peek may be better suited for lb now. Because he is only 6'3 238 which isnt big enough to play DE.
I got this from http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/396057

I have been saying for a few weeks that I want the Texans to draft a LB in the second round if winston and mangold are both gone. I would look at Abdul Hodges or Thomas Howard im leaning towards Howard.

Went to K-State and originally signed by the Broncos out of college.

I don't think our current GM seems to think that LB or OL is an issue with this team...you have to wonder what games he is wathcing...must still be watching PbucH tape...

If we draft an MLB I dont see it being in the first 2 rounds....I really like Gerris Wilkerson...Seems like he has a lot of potential

I read the story. Of course he says that. Would he say anything different?

I don't think any NFL player can really be 'ready' 6 1/2 months after surgery to repair a torn ACL, much less ACL and patella tendon.

Babin definetly wont be a good MLB ive stated that in a few other threads. Thomas Howard is 6'3 239 and ran a 4.4 40. So now you tell me why he cant.

Also I think Wong will be our MLB and that means Thomas Howard can play OLB.

I have seen Howard play is he is athletic as they come, but has little feel for LB in even in college. He is a project that will take sometime in the pros.

Yes, if we had to line up three right now and play a football game, the Texans would be in horrible shape.
