We Still Need a Linebacker

OK - Cameron Jordan was my pick if he still was around at #24. He was and the Saints pulled the trigger. What I did not expect was Payton doubling up and taking Inram at #28. I'm not mad at all because we need an infusion in the running game to balance the offense, take some pressure off of Brees where he's not thinking he has to force everything or try to do it all, and give our defense a much needed rest between each series. Good round one.
Now - We still need a linebacker.
Next chance: #8 in the 3rd round.
We need some help on the outside and we still have to cover Will Smith's 4 game suspension. Hopefully, our solid running game is a big part of an improved defensive performance every week. 17 play drives, 5-7 minutes, 10-12 minutes running clock. Fresh legs may put our turnover ratio back to 09' numbers.

Maybe we can move into the second round and get Martez Wilson. If we stay where we are, I don't think we'd be getting a starter.

Our only hope this year. We need a solid starter.

I was hoping we could find a way to grab Bruce Carter from the draft still.

A jewel pick + Junior and Dunbar stepping up. Charleston showed much promise end of last season. I'm looking at 12-4 or better.
AGAIN!
