    Damn, its a great time to need an ILB in the draft

    Man, Good timing to need an ILB to pair with Timmons:

    Luke Kuechly
    Manti Te'o
    Vontaze Burfict
    James Michael-Johnson

    Donte Hightower

    I particularly like the ones in bold.

    I dont think the Steeler will go that route in round one but in round two....

    Nico Johnson Alabama would be a nice fit.

    And interesting name is Zach Brown from North Carolina. He is projected outside but he may be the fastest LB to come into the NFL in a long time. Moving him inside next to Timmons with his speed and in front of Troy would be one of the fastest defenses in a long time. Sideline to sideline.

    Also Lavonte David of Nebraska intrigues me. Big time play maker who is one of the best in coverage.

    Burfict has had an absolutely terrible season and should really come back for his senior year.

    I absolutely love David....however.....I don't think he is big enough to play in a 3-4.

    I wouldnt say he has had a terrible season. No way. 68 tackles, 5 sacks, 7 tackles for loss, 4 PD's, 1 Fumble recovery, and a pick from the inside isnt terrible. Did I expect more from him this year? Yes...but far from terrible.

    I think he could. If he adds 10 lbs he right about the same size as Larry Foote.

    Where David would excel in coverage I believe he would be a liability in the run game. He needs to play in space where he can use his athleticism.
