    As of now Zach Brown, Akeem Ayers and Patrick Bailey are the only OLBs on the depth chart. I would look for a linebacker in round two just like the last two years. Possibly someone who can also play MLB in a pinch. Brian Winters if he is still around in round 3. No idea who we grab in round 1

    We have more glaring needs than OLB. We would be drafting for depth. I don't feel you should draft for depth in the second round.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but Moses Fouku can play OLB?

    I see us picking up a LB in the 4th or 5th round. I still wouldn't sleep on us bringing back Witherspoon; we're likely waiting to see how the draft plays out. We'll have a few mil leftover after draft signings - can lockup Spoon on vet min for depth. I'd like to see this:

    OLB: Brown - Fouku
    ILB: McCarthy - 3rdC/4th - Shaw - Bailey
    OLB: Ayers - Spoon - 5th/6th

    What about Jared McGrath ( AHHHHHHHH....!)? Has he been signed anywhere yet? I think Fokou will be an all around depth backer but it still leaves us two backers down. I think Winters is the OG we are targeting not Cooper or Warmack. Id be cool with Mingo in round 1. He could play DE and OLB in some packages.

    McRath is a bum. He's done in the NFL.
