My football philosophy is defense first. You build a good defense and you can win games with even an average QB. Give someone like Kyler a defense he can rely on and we will make the playoffs most years. It also happens to be where we have the most holes. All our CB's except Murphy are FA. Campbell is FA. Hicks has 2 years left and is a cheap cut next year. Peters is FA. Reddick and Golden are FA. It's not pretty. So I would expect a defense heavy draft and I think the linebacker class is one of the better groups in the draft. I also like the idea of finding a partner for Simmons going forward so they can grow together as a unit. Who do you like to? Assuming Parson's is gone by 16 a guy I'm intrigued by in the first 2 rounds is Zaven Collins. Although I think he's gone by our round 2 pick. At 6'4", 257lb - Man, what a unit. I'm intrigued by Collins size and athleticism. He's not got elite speed because he's 260lb but he's got good lateral quickness. He's super impressive physically. Great getting off blocks, superb tackler, flies around the field and gets in the backfield a bunch. Also good in coverage but more a zone guy, you don't want him covering a slot receiver. I think his attributes complement Simmons. But what impresses me the most is his intelligence. He's a smart guy off the field but you can really see his football smarts. Really good at diagnosing plays and knowing where to be, something we seem to lack in our current linebackers. When you see him interviewed he looks and acts like he's 28. Very mature guy. Because of his natural size and strength I also think you have the option of using him at OLB which he would do a little at Tulsa off the edge. Who else do you guys like? I'm not so up to speed on other guys. Owusu-Koramoah looks too small. Nick Bolton looks good but quite a similar skill set to Simmons. I like Cameron McGrone too but he seems to have a similar skill set to Collins but not quite as good.
