Heard Hawthorne had a pick in the scrimmage. Haven't heard about Vilma.

Re: Whats the word at ILB

There doesn't seem to much word about the inside. Everyone is talking about the outside LB'ers. Even though we are thin at OLB I still want to see Wilson on the inside when he returns. I doubt that we will see it but I can hope.

Seems like they're pretty well set at the ILB spot. Just like at center/guard. Sometimes no news is good news.

I am hopeful that Vilma will have more success in the 3-4 here in NO than he did in NY.

As I understand it the systems are quite different. Ryans system are supposed to protect the LBs much more than what Manginas system did with the Jets.

No kidding, he'd be a beast in the inside with Lofton.

Re: Whats the word at ILB

injuries aint going to clear this up this year.

If Jr can not prove he is more than a trick pony as a pass rusher and no other dark horses surfaces it has to boil down to either:

Hawthorne or Vilma manning the other OLB position opposite of Wilson. The other will remain at ILB

right now i am thinking Vilma might be the one out there.

If Junior fails, which I don't think he will, you still have Will Smith, David Hawthorne, Eric Martin, Chase Thomas, and Rufus Johnson.

At least one of those guys should be able to compliment Junior.
