    maybe. how many of them are young DTs that can 2 gap? We didn't lose any LBers and they were fine last year. I personally wasn't sold on cunningham he's 6'3 and 234 (evan engram is this size). If we are going to upgrade LB. we need a 3 down MLB..i don't see cunningham as that.

    They have 3 guys that started a lot of game last year and a young guy they like. Nickel is the base defense these days much less need for lbs

    well said and 100% agree. We get very good production out of our tackles on the cheap.

    I mean, we did try to resign hank, but he didn't wanna take 7 mil a year. We didn't have that much bread to spend to begin with. We won straps without high draft picks spent on the linebacking corps before.

    great post thats why building through the draft is the smartest way to roll.

    Lost cause. If 2 super bowl runs and last year's defense didn't show these people, nothing will. We invest in CBs, pass rushers on the edge, and run stuffers in the middle. LBs are pretty much whatever you can scrape together every year which I prefer, rather than doing the same with a position like CB or DE.

    The reason Cunningham dropped is because the word is that he's soft.

    If Tomlinson can start, it's a great pick. Starters on rookie contracts is how teams can afford star players
