    The reason he's on his 3rd team, is because his 2nd team played a 3-4 defense which he doesn't fit.

    I think Connor will be an upgrade over Blackburn, but Brown would have been a stud!!

    Our LBs suck & can't stay healthy....there's a reason their original teams were ok with them leaving...
    CBs, we only have 1 good one...if your ok with this, so be it..

    You mean the cowboys? Who are moving to a 4-3? Yea sure, lets say they cut him before they realized he would fit.

    Both units looked worse because of how inept our DL was.

    You fix the DL, you directly improve both units.

    We have talent at LB and CB.

    The Cowboys were already deep at ILB. They had Lee, Carter, and Sims, 3 very talented players.

    Right, so he got cut because he isnt as good as the other LBs on their roster.

    Just like he is nowhere near as good as Arthur Brown

    Outside of Ogletree, no other linebacker in this draft would start over Rivers/Connor/Williams.


    Corner - Prince/Webster/Hosley/Ross/Thomas

    We already spent high picks in the 2011 (Prince) and 2012 (Hosley) drafts on young corners. You have to give these guys a chance to grow. Webster is counted on to bounce back. Ross is very underrated as a #4 corner - look at the 2nd half of 2011 especially the SB run, he was practically lights out for us, and he was starting then.


    Our linebackers were hurt last year because our DTs were getting blown off the ball and not eating up space. Our corners were hurt last year because our DTs were getting zero push up the middle and QBs threw from a clean pocket. Our front office realized that, and went all in to fix the DT position, feeling that it will directly improve the LBs and CBs.
    Thank you, Im hopeful most fans already knew this info and agree that we still need help in all 3 spots. Any real news?
