On the issue with all starting OLBs being taken in the 3rd or later. I looked up all 4-3 & 3-4 defenses (17 to 15 respectively...I didn't know it was that balanced in the NFL right now), b/c this sounded interesting to me. I counted 12 starting 43 OLBs who were drafted in 1st or 2nd rounds, so whoever wrote that stat that you read is definitely wrong.
EDIT: I didn't even include Thomas Davis, taken in the 1st of course.
yea i just looked around a bit. Def was fed misinformation there.
