An OLB beyond the 1st

19 posts in this topic

...is not out of the question imo especially with a new coaching staff.

I think Sean Porter would be a really intriguing option at OLB to replace Anderson/Philips or whatever we do out there. I understand Beason/Keek/TD is a possibility but Considering two of those players' injury history and our less than spectacular coverage skills in the unit, I think we should be looking for that hybrid type (i.e. Von Miller, Wagner) to take a gander at that can blitz, cover the flanks, and go 1 on 1 with the athletic TEs in the league.

Before something I expect to be said is said, YES we have other pressing needs, but I don't see a long term option at either OLB right now and many defenses are growing more into the hybrid sets. I think this could be wise looking beyond just next season.

What say you? And again, not in the first...but about OLBs beyond it. Cheers

I wouldn't call Von Miller a hybrid type player

Well that's what he is

I been thinking about the same thing for weeks now and I've been eyeing at Porter also. The only thing is I was hoping he fall into the 4th, which likely won't happen.

Yeah I personally think we should look elsewhere early (obviously) but always like to think of what we can do in the later rounds. I was trying to look at the guys that are 4-3 capable and strong in coverage.

I'd love to take an OLB in the 4th. If not I'd go with a TE like Fauria.

I think OLB is a position we need to consider. Especially if a great one falls into our lap and is BPA. We definitely have bigger needs though. Won't be mad with another stud line backer though
