A 4th round LB may actually see the field in the next two years without a big injury. He was a good college qb but I just don't see the "best pick of the draft" in him. Its a team game but just look at his last two head to head meetings against another 4th round qb, Barkley. I don't hate the guy and it may turn out to be a great pick but take off the rose colored glasses.
While you can make the argument that we won two Superbowls with that philosophy, neither of those teams were dominant teams and both the Ravens and 49ers made the Superbowl on dominant defenses that show cased strong linebacker play (and I'm not talking about strictly pass rushing OLBs either).
And in 2007-2008 we actually had a fairly strong LBing crew.
We threw numbers at the position over the past few years, and it's been our Achilles Heel throughout that time (including our 2011 SB run).
