Default Re: Possible LB

I read a football outsider article that the startin linebackers in the nfl were pretty equally distributed between the first five rounds! I.e. 1st round picks are 20
% of starters and 20% of fiftht roundes start as well. This was compared to cloes to 50% of QB's. RB's & 1st WR's being round one. If you look at our d-fense standouts, all pro's, most were later rounds. However, all things being equal, based on our current situation, there is no reason I WOULDN'T pick a LB early. Is Pos still a good shot 1st round?
