About halfway through the season this year I was fairly convinced this team needed another linebacker with the ability to make big plays. Greenwood was in the midst of another lackluster year, and the forum seemed to be kicking around ideas of either picking up a new WLB or a new MLB and shifting Demeco to the will. After seeing Adibi get some playtime I'm not necessarily convinced that we need to go out and use a high draft pick or expensive FA acquisition to replace Greenwood. Diles was our most productive linebacker prior to his injury, and his broken leg shouldn't prevent him from coming back 100% next year. I think the suspicion that Demeco hasn't been 100% healthy this year is most likely valid, but he still provides us solid play regardless. Adibi has some injury concerns, but when he's on the field he's very productive. The three of them give us a highly athletic but undersized group (Adibi - 6'2, 220; Diles 6'0, 240; Ryans 6'1, 250). The point of the thread is to see what your thoughts are about moving forward with this group. Do you see Adibi starting in front of Greenwood from the beginning next year with Diles returning at SLB? Do we need to go get a high priced FA or blue chip prospect at LB to stiffen up our D? I'm happy to move forward with Diles, Ryans, and Adibi, and I wouldn't necessarily go out of the way to address this position before others such as DE and safety. On the other hand, Diles and Adibi were solid but not spectacular. I wouldn't pass up the chance at a great LB (a la Patrick Willis) if they were the BPA. Thoughts on our LB corp moving forward?
