    Does this mean Reed could end up at ILB?

    Mayok said he fell due to his interviews. Some teams took him off the board. But physically, he's a solid 2nd round grade. The team just needs to "keep him on track."

    Mayock said teams took him off their draft board because they didn't like his "profile" ... didn't like what the kid was all about, in his words. Any idea what the heck he's talking about?

    I'm starting to believe that now. We're not drafting a starter in the 4th, and we don't have the cap space for another FA.

    Right? I think our scouts got stuck in that region.

    I don't think he moved to ilb. With swearinger our 3rd safety will play more snaps then our 2ilb. And there are still a couple guys available still

    Sounds like a guy with a VY mindset. That usually doesn't end well.

    I dont think so - They only had Reed , Mercilus and Braman on the roster at OLB prior to this selection.


    Still quite a few ILBers on the board who could start from day one: AJ Klien , Nico Johnson , Kevin Reddick and a couple OLB's who probably translate better to ILB on the pro level - Khaseem Greene , Chase Thomas & Sean Porter.


    I like Klien the most as he has the coverage skills to deal with the TE's and RB's leaving Cushing to be that 5th rusher on most occasions.

    Except for this:

    We drafted his HS team mate in the 2nd round. Motivation?
