Re: Linebacker??

Does the FO consider us set at ILB? I'm kind of feeling that.

I would think so, since Vilma, Lofton, Hawthorne and Wilson have all played the position, I think we're OK.

In fact, some think Martez Wilson is a better candidate for that SILB than Lofton or Hawthorne, including me.

Its the inside position that blitzes the most and thrives on a thumper with great straight-line speed and burst. That has Martez written all over it.

It wouldn't surprise me to see Hawthorne at SAM, Martez at Mike, Lofton or Vilma at WILL and Galette at Jack.

Re: Linebacker??

i can see us adding an ILB or two late in the draft. the back end of the draft has some nice players. the talent level does not drop off that much
