Re: 2014 NFL Draft

So far it looks like a vote of no confidence in Charlie Brown, Zach Strief, Brian de la Puente and Curtis Lofton...

Really surprised to see Outside Linebacker not receiving more votes...

How do you figure that? You didn't put RT in your poll.

We also have L/R ILB so how Lofton is identified is not clear to me. I also do not have a whole lot of faith that voters know the difference between ILB and OLD in regards to our depth chart.

We have 5 R/L ILBs.

And not to nit-pick the poll, but every LB in a 3-4 is different.
The Jack backer has a different skillset than the SOLB, and the WILB has a different skillset than the SILB.

Same with SS and FS.

Same with LT and RT.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

we need size, speed and cover skills in the LB corp as a whole

OT the entire depth chart needs to be addressed seeing almost all are FA this year
