Rnd 1: Donald Butler (SDC), LB
The LB corps is what i inherited - couldve been a lot worse, couldve been a lot better though.
Start 3 & 1 flex play so out of the roster we have id probably grade them something like:
I figure only 3 of those are LB#1's and all of them have question marks. Jackson <Health>, Washington <Potential but not the production, yet>, Fletcher <Age>
With the potential to start 4 i grabbed a starting LB. He's coming off a serious injury but hes looked sharp in pre-season so welcome aboard.Rnd 2: Marcel Dareus (BUF), DE
ATM we're carrying Matt Roth & Glenn Dorsey - one was playing OLB last year and the other is a 3-4 DE (I prefer 4-3 DE's but there you go!).
Im not exepcting a "Suh-like" eruption from Dareus, but he should be playing the majority of snaps and i think he was the best DL in the draft.
I know it'll probably give anyone else in the the draft a bit of a lead/ headsup abaout which way we could be leaning in drafting - but definitely
on the lookout for another DE that can produce. Dont need to carry more than 4 (Start 2), but plenty of questions about what we've got on the roster atm
Another slightly problematic feature of this pick is that Dareus is listed as a DE on MFL & DT on ESPN (The draft is via MFL and the league run on ESPN). Between him and Jones both could be moved next year, one, either - who knows. Being a dyna i dont mind taking the long term view on this.
A nice sleeper @DE for this year would REALLY
do us some real good as this is probably our weakest spot
