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?
I am still worried about the CB position. However, for some reason, even though I have been HARPING on it all offseason, I am starting to have a little more confidence in our DB's. Why? WHo knows. probably because its been a few months since I have seen them actually play!
