But who do you think will win it in training camp, that's really my question.

Pre-Training camp, who do you favor?

If we end up getting a good, starting strong side LB in the 7th round from last year's draft...

Well...

Dayum.

My mancrush for Smithiak grows.

I like Zach's instincts from what little I saw of him in college and the pros so far. I'm interested in seeing him in coverage, the knock on him is speed but I really really hope we can find someone who can cover the Dallas Clarks and Alge Crumplers of the division.

If Diles is that guy, i'd be ecstatic!!!

I'm betting it won't be Bentley. The guy can back up all three spots, because Kevis Coley is who?

Diles, unless OLB Rivers is still on the board at #18 then the rookie should start.

Yea, at Will.

I'm starting to lean more towards drafting Rivers, if Mendehall and the good OTs are already taken(including Albert).

Imagine our front 7 if we draft Rivers.

It'll be

Diles - DeMeco - Rivers

Mario - TJ - Amobi - Speed Rusher

That's atleast 4 pro-bowlers in that line-up.

Thats a nasty lineup but I dont see how Diles would be starting. If Rivers was starting at WLB, Greenwood would probably take over at SAM. He is the same size as Diles, except he has more athleticism, more experience, and his play last year was pretty good. Diles would really have to impress Kubiak in camp/preseason to even be considered for the starting spot.

Rivers-Ryans-Greenwood
Williams-Johnson-Okoye-Kalu

That is a tremendous front 7. Although they will have to be in order to make up for the secondary. I can see the Texans taking Rivers if he is still on the board because he would probably be BPA, but there will also be some very good DBs available at #18 that could immediately start for this team.
