Excellent point.

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.


Why the concern when you have Spence and Fort ready to go??

No faith in Tomlin?

Sign Timmons and have him in situations.

That with Bostic and these dudes drafted and the middle of the defense is improved.

This draft was really thin at Mike LB. I am not sure if next year will be much better,

Maybe this year’s phenom UFA is an ILB.

Foster, Hilton, Nix, Villanueva, etc

We drafted two potential ILB prospects.

Serious question, does anyone believe that a little weight and some coaching that Marcus Allen could turn into their ILB of the future?

Dude loves to hit, lives for it and nobody wants him covering 25 yards downfield, make him play at the LOS

Jason Cabinda is the perfect old school type MLB and a real thumper but we already have that in Williams. I'm somewhat surprised he will be a UDFA... that position/skillset is dying in todays league.

Colbert On 2018 ILB Draft Class: ‘Only A Few That We Thought Were Real Four-Down-Type Players’


Quote:
On Monday, Colbert was a guest on SiriusXM NFL Radio and he was asked by Ross Tucker if the organization just didn’t see any inside linebackers during the draft that they liked,


Quote:
..."There was only a few that we thought were real four-down-type players and when we were picking, those types of guys weren’t available to us.”


I do not know if this next statement is true or not (meaning if Colbert really did try to do this), but here it is...

Quote:
It’s been reported since the draft ended that the Steelers had had their sights set on former Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans and that Colbert had even attempted to trade up in the first-round to get him.

That’s why I kind of give a raised eyebrow to everyone saying it’s was the plan all along to draft safeties as linebackers due to a new age defense.
My money is that if they could have drafted Evans a traditional ILB that he would have been the pick.
