I would love to see us draft either ILBs Kevin Minter from LSU or Manti Te'o from Notre Dame in next year's draft to be the eventual successor to Larry Foote who will be 33 years old next season. I actually think Larry Foote has been one of our better defensive players so far this season, but he's not getting any younger or faster.
as for Jason Worilds, today was by far the best I have ever seen him play. it sure would be nice to see him continue to build on today's performance and become the clear successor to James Harrison.
