I just dont see it. You spend your #1 and #2 picks on OLB last year and have Harrison post a Pro Bowl year and lead the team in sacks......and you are gonna spend another 1st round pick on a OLB????

Especially when you saw your d line suck when Aaron smith got injured. I see O linemen and D linemen being a priority.

agreed, first pick needs to address the line, either O or D but it must be a lineman.

I wouldnt be disappointed in this pick if there are no OL available at 23(I.e. Albert). Assuming Tomlin goes to some hybrid defense this pick does make sense. Especially considering Timmons at MLB. Harrison was a beast but he tired at the end of the season against better opposition. Outside of Timmons and Woodley the LB core is getting old.

This sounds more like a luxury pick to me. He would be nice, but they gotta go OL first.

i'd say thier taken a look just in case it comes down to a BPA pick. there may be no OL or DL worthy of the 23 pick.

Groves is a little overrrated after having great workouts.

I prefer guys who proove themselves on the field not in a workout. A perfect example of that is Woodley

I wouldn't be that upset if we took Groves but people here are talking like he is the next Greg Lloyd. Groves's senior season was solid but not spectacular. He has trouble shedding blocks which is a huge killer in our 3-4
