Breaking down our defensive roster and recent picks. Lets start from the LBs and reasoning For why we drafted certain players Akeem Ayers- came out as a 34 rush line backer. Became our thumper (and more lately, a rush LB/DE... Multiple positions? Needed SLB. Lbs were in the slums. Zach Brown- came out as the fastest friggin Lb of his size in just about forever. We were enamored with the possibility of that speed. WLB with that speed can be something special. His stats (while a little over blown) are nice for a rookie LB. have to like this pick looking back. Had to replace Witherspoon /WLB McCarthy- injury prone MLB. But came in as a sleeper 5th rounder, couldn't pass up the talent level at that late of a pick. If he's healthy, he's awesome. Ball hawk. Great instinct. DTs- Mike Martin - a dominate 3 tech guy that creates mismatches with his odd size. Short but super explosive. Hard to block. 3rd round. Casey - another shorter thumper. Is good as a run stopper as well as a rusher. 3rd round. Good and has gotten better. Klug - pure passing down DT. Took a year back but has to handle size issues. Not an every play DT but explosive in rotation. No Early Webster DEs, CBs or S. I think the fact we picked up Free agent Safeties this year pushes that back. So of course that leaves to big options. DE or CB. CB. We will probably have a good option at 10 worth Cbs, and a thinner one with DEs. I don't put it passed Webster to surprise us with a DE but I just don't see it as near a need with comparable talent. We need depth at DEs but not necessarily a starter right off the bat. Wright wasn't a starter pick. Locker wasn't a starter pick. So where does that lead us on first round picks? Does Webster surprise us? Or take the balancing act with a top CB that becomes an immediate starter?
