I'm a bit surprised we haven't taken a LB yet, I think we've gotten some solid players thus far, we need a linebacker though. Kind of concerning/

The entire draft should be secondary and one LB wherever. No LB can help the suckitude of Corey Webster.

Corey Webster played the majority of last season with a broken arm. There are certain injuries that can't be overcome.

I don't know....Damontre Moore could very well be used as a OLB in pass rushing situations. He backed up Von Miller in 2010 at that position, and then was very productive as an OLB in 2011. It wasn't until last year that he switched to DE under a new coach.

At 250lbs, I could definitely see him being used that way in certain packages.

In a perfect world, Khaseem Greene might still be around late in the 4th, or maybe JR makes a move up.

If not, I think Damontre Moore might become a disruptive linebacker, at least situationally.

lolwhat? He had a broken hand which was not deemed a significant injury. Which happened after the Panthers game. Webster still got torched by the Cowboys and by Steve Smith so no, it's not the injury. He's losing speed and he's playing in a system that caters to his weaknesses.

Just wasn't a good year for LB's ONCE AGAIN unfortunately, hopefully we can get Kevin Redd!ck in the 4th Round!

Which would be great if the linebackers they have had problems with pass rushing. But they suck in coverage. Moore won't help that. Reese seems to want the pass rush at the expense of other needs.

A hand/wrist injury is more significant to a corner than u think. Not being able to press/jam receivers at the line of scrimmage effectively with both hands was a big reason why Webster got beat so often.

Hand, arm, what is the difference? You are blaming him for the linebackers woes as a cornerback and in the same breath saying he doesn't fit in our system. In 2011 he was getting called a shut down corner after holding every teams #1 to little to no yards. In years past the pass rush was more effective and that helps every corner and d-back out, not just Webster. The team is just that, a team, and until they start playing as one it won't matter how good each individual player is.

Wow, harsh words for a guy who has been our best CB the past 5 years. Yes, he was off last year, but he also had injuries to deal with. He will be back.

Exactly, plus a leg injury too if I remember quickly. The guy is not old and has given us 5 excellent years in a row. I do not understand why everyone has been so ready to dump him. People have been unduly harsh in their judgements IMO.
