Pugh shot that argument down. How about "the giants won't take a RB in the first" Wilson shot that argument down too. Trust me if Von Miller was on the board in 2011 he would've been the choice.
    that was a different Defensive system...

    What does that have to do with what I said?? Are we running some type of 7-0 defense that doesn't require linebackers?? You said they won't spend money on a LB or draft one high. They HAVE spent money on LBs and as I said they most definitely would have drafted Von Miller if he was there in 2011. The value hasn't been there and that's why they haven't selected one high.

    Show me a linebacker in the last 5 years that was available in the first that was better value than our pick... you won't find one.

    Our current system doesn't devalue linebackers, the quality of the other 8 guys on defense has hidden the mediocrity of our LB core.

    clearly you didnt read the opening post i made. I am suggesting because of guys like RGIII/newton/vick/2 TE sets ect. that dictated the system that Fewell implemented.

    this allows us to have a QB spy on passing downs (3rd safety) and which is why we bring in guys like rivers/curry/williams who are very athletic and run with TE's/QBs. We are running out 2 lbs a good portion of the time anyways.
    Because of the way we are currently set up, not based on what weve done previously , you are not going to see the gmen bring in big ticket FA's or high draft picks on LBs, hence devaluing the position as a whole. Obviously the exception occurs if there is an extraordinary talent IE: Miller, but when you are picking in the 2nd half of the 1st round each year, that doesnt come up too often.
