    As of now Zach Brown, Akeem Ayers and Patrick Bailey are the only OLBs on the depth chart. I would look for a linebacker in round two just like the last two years. Possibly someone who can also play MLB in a pinch. Brian Winters if he is still around in round 3. No idea who we grab in round 1

    We have more glaring needs than OLB. We would be drafting for depth. I don't feel you should draft for depth in the second round.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but Moses Fouku can play OLB?

    I see us picking up a LB in the 4th or 5th round. I still wouldn't sleep on us bringing back Witherspoon; we're likely waiting to see how the draft plays out. We'll have a few mil leftover after draft signings - can lockup Spoon on vet min for depth. I'd like to see this:

    OLB: Brown - Fouku
    ILB: McCarthy - 3rdC/4th - Shaw - Bailey
    OLB: Ayers - Spoon - 5th/6th

    What about Jared McGrath ( AHHHHHHHH....!)? Has he been signed anywhere yet? I think Fokou will be an all around depth backer but it still leaves us two backers down. I think Winters is the OG we are targeting not Cooper or Warmack. Id be cool with Mingo in round 1. He could play DE and OLB in some packages.
