    Agreed. The thing is, they work in a 3-4 defense, if you pair them up. It takes a guy who tackles everything in the box next to them (like Vince Williams was).

    I realized the trend in the NFL is the speed ILB, but Jack Campbell looks very "throwback" to me. I think he'd be such a good fit for this team.
    Of all the positions of need, I'm ok with any of 3 OT. Content with others in later rounds. Even at CB, the same applies.

    But, this ILB is the one. His height and effort make me think Brian Urlacher - and I'd take that all day long.

    Your teasing me now when you say Brian Urlacher. LOL. I don't want an ILB who gets overwhelmed in the wash trying to make a tackle because he's too little. No more of those guys please.

    unless Jerome Bettis is on the other team.

    Steel Maniac's Time-Based Prediction: Lamar Jackson will be a bust and total flop in the NFL.

    What Actually Happened: Lamar Jackson became the youngest two-time NFL MVP winner ever.

    Wasn't Urlacher a safety in college? I thought that he was kind of the prototype of smaller faster guy excelling at ILB. I think Farrior was also a smaller faster guy...playing well under his listed weight IIRC.

    Maybe I'm misremembering though.

    I feel like trade up happens for one of the 5 that i mentioned, but within reason. I did the math and it's not that bad.

    To move to say 1.14 (NE pick):

    They'd have to give 1.17 and a 3rd, and receive 1.14 and a 4 (end of round comp pick)... Now I wouldn't be shocked if NE played hardball and gave back a 5th instead - but, if you're getting Paris, Skoronski or Broderick Jones, I say it's worth it. You just have to make the 2 seconds count.

    If that's all that it would cost, then I'm on board. But I have a feeling that the Pats would try and bend us over the headboard.
