Lofton
Vilma
Wilson
Hawthorne
Humber (he's looked really comfortable at WILB)
Chamberlain
Herring
Reddick (a sleeper for significant PT)
I like you threw Wilson in there, I believe he could make a huge impact at ILB, now I think I will be massacred for saying this but Lofton to me is going to be a weak link at ILB because of his cover skills, I think Lofton is a tackling machine, hard hitter and all that but against the pass he will not be good. Hawthorn with Reddick as his backup and Wilson with Humbar backing him up might be a good set of ILB. O.K. guys let me have it?

I missed it somehow, sorry about that. What would you do with Lofton? Possibly play him on run downs? I wish his cover skills were better he would be an all rounded lb..

I'm sure he'll come out on obvious passing downs and against 3 or 4 receiver sets. He's 1st on the bench in nickel and dime sets.

Reddick................the name reminds me of a bad arse from The Chronicles of Riddick or the prequel that I can't think of.(which was better)
