DRAFT WATCH: LB

Postby mdb1958 » Fri Mar 09, 2018 5:29 am

After seeing Josey Jewell's cone time I can see why he can pass protect. Way faster than Kwon or LVD.

If we went into this draft pretty stable and not any glaring needs, are you telling me there arent no linebackers you would want for this team.

“Are not any” not the grammar police here but I have to throw a flag there.

And no we do not need a LB , we have Riley Bullough

There are plenty of linebackers I would like for this team. However, drafting a linebacker would come at the cost of not drafting a talented player at another area of our team.

Didn’t realize until I looked but we have 10 Lb’s on the roster right now

I wouldn't be surprised if LB was an area OBP felt they needed to address. The depth is lacking. The starters are probably a bit overrated around here as well and Kwon is an impending FA.

There are some stud LB's in this draft. Edmunds and Smith are incredible players and I'd take either on this team. IDGAF about the "need" a great HC/DC will find a way to make it work. And if Kwon's career gets derailed because of it, oh well, I'm not shedding tears because we got a better player than him. The only issue is that I just don't see us going after either at 7, nor would I be pounding the rock for them since I think there will definately be a player I have ranked higher (Barkely, Nelson, Fitz, Chubb) on the board at the time. I mean if no QB went in the top 6, then you would see me yelling for one of them for sure. But that's just not happening.

Also after Edmunds, Smith, and Evans there's a big drop off so there's no one LB I'd look at in the second. Then it's just Day 3 and it's all about who and what is left where.

There are good linebackers to be had in every round of this draft.

We don't talk much about it because it's a strength of this team, but teams needing linebackers will feast on good talent the whole weekend.

If Kwon walks, and I don't think he does, we have Beckwith ready to step in. Glanton likely becomes the SAM and it's business as normal. If we draft a LB, it will because they think the guy will be a special teams ace and it won't happen sooner than late day 3.

Devante Bond looked good in spot starts, too.

I could see OBP getting blown away by somebody in the mid-rounds, and taking him so they can let Kwon (and his potential future suspension) walk. It seems like he might be 4th on the extension train right now from the 2015 class.

But for the reason you stated, I don't think it's a priority. David-Beckwith and Glanton/Bond at SAM (with the loser providing depth) isn't a bad way to go if need be.

I'm curious about Vander Esch. I sure do wonder how good he turns out.

Probably pretty good. He plays hard.

I'm a fan, but I haven't spent a lot of time on him. He's in no-man's land for us between the 1st and the 2nd, and I think his destiny is as a Patriot.

He'd be yhe new breuski there.

If he ended up in Pittsburgh, they'd love him too, but I keep picturing Josey Jewell there.

In a perfect universe, Roquan would be in Baltimore.

He'd look great in black and gold, next to Watt and Dupree.

CJ Moseley is a great comp for Roquan. Putting them next to each other would be dynamic.
