Default ILB Prospects.

With the trading of Demeco and already being thin at ILB who do you guys think we'll go after and in what round? I am not looking forward to starting Sharpton.

Default Re: ILB Prospects.

Crack pipe dream- trade up for Keuchly. He will be a top 5 ILB for years.

Other than that, it is a pretty weak class IMO.

Burfict was supposed to be a stud, but has looked like a dud. maybe in the 4th, but no earlier than that.

Hightower could be good, but I just have an uneasy feeling about the guy, cant explain it. A round 1 candidate.

Kendricks would be solid in the 2nd or 3rd. He is a bit undersized though, but a very willing thumper.

Cole from NC State could be had in the 4th.

After those guys, it is pretty slim pickings.

Kendricks in the 2nd or Cole in the 3rd.

I think Kendricks is perfect for us.

Default Re: ILB Prospects.

I'd take Cole in the 3rd I think he's got some stud potential, Franklin in the 4th, and Carder or Burfict in the 5th.

No way I'd take an ILB in the first round....

I believe part of the reason Demeco is no longer here is because of his limited role in this defense...I don't see any reason to take one unless a guy fell you that was just too good to pass up...No way I'd trade up for a guy though..

Default Re: ILB Prospects.

I'm tempted to say Burfict because between him and Cushing they might start a fire out there....That'd be awesome to see them feeding off each other...

But my first choice by a slim, slim margin would be Mychal Kendricks somewhere in the second round...If we missed out on him then I'd go after Burfict...

But I agree with Bah007 here...Kendricks would be perfect for us...


But man...The thought of Burfict playing next to Cushing is pretty damn enticing...

Indeed. If those two are in the middle of the field together this season, I probably wouldn't be able to stand up without being made fun of.

Well, if we get Kuechly, paint Smith white, and draft McLellin in the 3-4 round we may be all white up front, I just don't know what nationality Cody his, but he counts as a whitey

Default Re: ILB Prospects.

Are there any FA's or tendered players we could look at to fill, or are we planning draft simply for the cheap cost?

Tulloch was just re-signed by the Lions, but DeAndre Levy is still out there. Tendered for a 2nd. Might be a better fit at ILB.

Bart Scott on the trade block?

I agree...I think he's a fiery competitor...with coaching and maybe some anger management classes, he'll be a fine NFL'er...and I can't imagine him and Cushing getting Mic'd Up. I'd piss my pants from laughter.

Default Re: ILB Prospects.

If Hightower is there at 26, I think we need to take him. No way does Kuechly fall to 26, probably not out of the top 15. Hightower would mean that we replace one Bama MLB with another.

I didn't see too many people saying we should take MLB before we lost Demeco...

But now, since we lost a player that really had miniscule production on the season we should take a replacement for him in the first round?

I would not oppose the hightower pick simply because he is a really good player and he has versatility in that he can play on the outside some...At the same time, I can see the F.O. passing on ILB there and instead fill that position with a vet, Sharpton and maybe a mid round draft pick....

That second ILB isn't going to get a whole lot of burn...but I could see Hightower playing more than most because of his ability to play outside...

His versatility would be very helpful in Wade's defense. Even if he's not playing ILB, he could rotate into the OLB position, and his speed of 4.6 ought to make him useful in 3rd down situations. I think he could cover TEs if needed. Might even be able to trade down a bit and still pick him up. Some drafts have him going anywhere from 21 to 38.
