Probably won't be fixed overnight. Leaders, hell players like Luke don't come along often.
Shaq should be fine at mike, he won't be Luke, but in terms of play we'll be fine.
Simmons isn't an true LB. He's as close to a buffalo nickel as I've seen, ironically now that Ron's gone. That said he can benefit our team.
You wanna help our LBs? Build that line.
I agree with an above comment. If we stay at 7, we take LB Simmons. We need an anchor on defense along with Shaq. DT's take a year or so to get good anyway. If someone takes Simmons before us, we trade back.
There's a significant drop-off in Talent after the first 3 ots. They could quite possibly be a run on them right after our pick. If we trade down it should only be a couple of spots or we can trade ourself right out of one of the top OTs
