I guess they really like Bostic. And I do too. But we just finished the 5th round and still no ILB. We probably take one in the 7th. What do you think of Bostic, and not drafting an ILB in 5 rounds?
And is anyone that you like still out there.

Don't have a 6th. Steelers didn't so much need an ILB as to replace things Shaz does for their defense. Can Edmunds, Allen, Bostic, & Burnett do that? Well, I have more confidence in them than I do the gigantic diarrhea fest of last season.

Those 4 are light years better than the hot garbage we trotted out there last year.

Yeah but a box safety is not an ILB and I don't think those rookies change position. My concern is for the backup ILBs.

I remember when people said Shaz should play safety. His size and speed dictated that position change. Lake salivated at using him at safety.

There is a defensive paradigm shift. Big, strong, fast safety's that can cover and like to hit both in the run and pass.

It's not like it's the first time DB's were in sub packages playing linebacker.

Shaz played ILB but his skill set was safety, yes?

We drafted two ILBs in Edmunds and Allen

They weren't trying to draft traditional off ball LBs. Instead they needed people who did what Shazier did and fit his athletic profile. Neither are quite the specimen that he is, but they are physical tacklers that can cover backs and TEs. We will need to find some space eaters up front to keep them clean, but those are really a lot easier to come by than the hybrid $backers themselves since they are all the rage.

It was a great draft for the $backers and we snagged two. Defense altered.

I think it is simpler than that. Colbert thought the ILBs in this draft sucked after LVE and Evans.

Not that he is an ILB but Tegray Scales was one of the more impressive linebackers I saw play last year and he hasn't been drafted yet... I don't understand but I guess that's why I'm not paid to evaluate players.
