I think it would be great to convert Reid to OLB imo. Upgrade at safety that is actually good in coverage.

Yeah he basically was our 3rd linebacker last year he has no business at the safety position anymore . Ask Jared cook

Shaq Thompson is the future at middle linebacker. Y’all can quit the “who’s replacing Luke” topic. 

No one is replacing Luke but Shaq will be a beast at Mlb

I wouldn't assume Shaq is going to be MLB. 

We dont even have a defensive staff.

There’s a reason why he was UDFA. It don’t take much to get on the 53 man roster. Ask Brenton Bersin. 

I guess you don't follow football much. Every year UDFAs slip through the cracks.

And yes there a more alot more.

17 UDFAs are in the NFL and God knows how many more had the NFL used 7 rounds throughout the history of the NFL.

Johnny Unitas was a 14 rounder.

Do these names ring a bell?

Warren Moon

Kurt Warner 

John Randle

Nate Newton 

Larry Little

Jason Peter's

Priest Holmes 

Donnie Shell

James Harrison 

Rod Smith

Joe Jacoby 

Antonio's Gates

Tony Romo

Dick "Night Train" Lane

Recently 

Phillip Lindsay 

Adam Thelien

Andrew Norwell

Damon Harris

Michael Bennett 

Mario Addison 

Cameron Wake

Wesley Woodyard
Cory Littleton
Vontaze Burfict

A.J. Bouye

Chris Harris 

Tashaun Gipson

Tony Jefferson

All these players are UDFAs and are starters all the way to the HOF.

No matter who they draft, unless it's Simmons in the 1st round, he'll get a shot. UDFA have become superstars so you never know but it's always a long shot. Even he contributes and plays in rotation or something, that's good news.

I think they should still draft a LB. Kunaszyk did look good in the few snaps he got and he deserves a shot.

I was watching Clemson play and had the same thought about Tanner Muse (6'2" 230) a player with great instincts and tackling ability--can cover bigger slots and TEs in man....

I think this guy is a hidden gem.

This is the best and most logical response, imo.

What?

Sorta shifting the goal posts from your original statement.  Brad Hoover, Jake Delhomme, and Sam Mills were UDFAs who played here. 

https://www.derp/2018/5/22/17378036/nfl-undrafted-free-agents-play-more-often-than-you-probably-think

In 2017 there were 774 NFL players who appeared in at least 40-percent of offensive or defensive snaps. A total of 133 of these 774 players (17-percent) were UDFAs.

THAT IS 1 of every 6 regular players was an UDFA.

See, facts like these paint a better picture than making a statement and determining it to be true because you found 1 example to support it.
